    Doses this man not know that his car body originated from AC, a British (English ) manufacturer albeit with the great American Shelby,s fantastic power plant.? creating the original Cobra.
    Also the gag about a British oil leaking computer ?
    The first REAL computer was invented and used by Alan Turing .
    Alan Turing was a British (English) mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, and computer scientist. He is widely regarded as the father of computer science and artificial intelligence. Turing worked at Britain’s code-breaking centre Bletchley Park during World War II and was the primary person responsible for breaking the German Enigma code which proved to be a critical factor in the 2nd world war.
    Listen up ! I love you and our Americans Brothers over the pond , and also love your 60s 70s muscle cars.
    But I dont know what they teach you in school. just look it up and give credit where it is due ,if you are making off the cuff remarks not related to cars

    This is a cool car and that engine sound.....the guy is a bit quirky but hey, I'm sure being on camera with Jay Leno influences most people to act a bit different.

    The guys says that he just got it figured out and set up the way he wants it. That having been said it would be a lot more interesting to drive a "super car" like this on a track where you weren't looking over your shoulder for some A-whole CHP!

    Why won't American car makers build something like that? They don't want American to have any fun, that's why.
    It doesn't look that expensive to make.

    Nice front. Ugly stuck on fenders that even the door keyhole had to be cut out, ugly chopped off butt.

    As a kid growing up in the 60s, the Shelby Daytona Coupe was perhaps my favorite. Just a gorgeous body shape, almost as swoopy and sexy at the Jaguar XK-E. Yet, unlike the XK-E, this car had an American V-8 under the hood, just a throbbing. growling hunk of foot-lb torque that was rarely matched in Europe back in the day. And Bruce Goldsmith's version here is just a dream. The color is drop-dead gorgeous, and it's updated where it needs to be updated yet it keeps that wonderful, imaginative shaping and engineering that was at the heart of the 1960s. The automotive engineers and street-rod car guys knew little of aerodynamics back then, but they compensated for that by dreaming big, really BIG! Thanks Jay and Bruce!

    Beautiful machine. I had grown up "in the pits" in the SCCA racing scene in the early 60's and got to wander around and check out race cars somewhat like this. Great times. Great memories.
