The Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe was built between 1964-1965 as an attempt to improve its top speed on the Mulsanne Straight at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. There were only six cars produced and all were different from each other.
The "Nero" edition was released on January 16th, 2013, as part of the World Vintage Series. The car comes pre-equipped with Gromlen race-tuned performance parts, 2-star Skill Mods and Aftermarket Parts. Its livery is very similar to the "Carl Signature Edition" from Need for Speed: The Run.
The Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe has a stock top speed of 260 km/h (162 mph) which is slightly above average in Class C. Its acceleration is decent but lacks at the higher gears. It has also a good nitrous output. The handling of the Cobra Daytona is very good and it's also capable of high-speed cornering.
Pursuit and Team Escape wise, this car's weight is average to light, so ramming police is not the best choice for this car. However, its good handling allows it to easily dodge road blocks and rhinos.
