Vintage car collectors now have the chance to own a Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe via RM Sotheby’s, which is currently auctioning off a pristine 2013 model.

As the massively-iconic racer became more and more coveted, its original designer Peter Brock decided to create and sell continuation versions of the vehicle, making sure they’re as period correct as possible to the 1964 original model by keeping its emblematic leaf spring suspension system, its tube chassis and even the wooden rimmed steering wheel.

Despite an incredibly lightweight construction utilizing aluminium for the car’s bodywork, its modern day production features a number of safety upgrades as well as performance enhancements, such as the new Ford V8 built by Roush Performance. Other improvements include black leather interior upholstery, a strengthened frame, updated disc brakes, power windows and air-conditioning. Finished in a sleek black paint job with silver Le Mans racing stripes, the current 2013 model being auctioned only has 740 miles on its odometer, making it an extremely fresh re-creation of the mid-century legend.

The 2013 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe will be available for bids at RM Sotheby’s Palm Beach auction on March 20, which has now been changed to online only, with an estimated price of $130,000 USD to $160,000 USD. Head over to the auction house’s website to learn more.
