Looking for a hot collectible that makes exotic European sports cars look downright melancholy? This SEMA-featured Daytona is your one-way ticket to pure exclusivity! Factory Five Racing has long been applauded for their great fiberglass work, and this Type 65 is no exception. The car’s virtually flawless profile, a true replica of the original Shelby Daytona, is a 1-piece, hand-laid Vinylester shell that was laminated to 3/16ths, rotor-trimmed and covered in a .015-inch gel coat. That gel, thoroughly massaged by the professionals at Competition Specialties of Walpole, Massachusetts, lays excellent groundwork for glowing Ferrari Red 2-stage. And, since pretty much every Shelby worth its salt needs some kind of war paint, the car was graced with bold, Graphite racing stripes. Officially known as the Mast Motorsports 416 Black Label S/C, the car’s supercharged V8 utilizes a 6.8 liter LS3 to twist impressive 9.5 to 1 compression into 820 dyno-proven horsepower and 713 lb./ft. of torque. Built by Bowler Performance Transmissions, the car’s tough Tremec T56 Magnum spins a fresh, 8.8-inch pumpkin, which mixes a proven WaveTrac differential with big, 4.10 gears. That drivetrain rides in a MIG-welded replica of Shelby’s legendary MKIII, which employs a fully independent suspension. Unisteer power rack-and-pinion steering makes low-speed cruising almost as easy as high-speed sweeps. Hydro-boosted Wilwood calipers, 6-piston up front and 4-piston out back, clamp 14-inch carbon ceramic rotors. Power meets the pavement through 3-piece HRE wheels, which twist 315/30ZR18 BF Goodrich g-Force Rivals in front of 335/30ZR18 BF Goodrich g-Force Rivals. And Davis Technologies traction control augments the car’s perfect 50/50 weight distribution and tidy 2,531-pound dry weight. With insane performance, and aesthetics that are beyond reproach, THIS is the kind of build you simply can’t touch for our asking price.
