About this creation

LEGO Speed Champions Shelby Daytona Coupe (1964-65)

Shelby Daytona Coupe

Over at the LUGNuts group on flickr, the 106th Challenge, "Exclusive Edition", called for us to build a car that was exclusive, forrrr whatever reason. Special Editions, customization, examples produced, etc. So I was able to enter this: the Shelby Daytona! Here was my reasoning posted to the challenge page:
According to wikipedia, "just six Shelby Daytona Coupes were built between 1964 and 1965". Talk about exclusive! Shelby has recently commemorated the original cars win in the '65 FIA Championship with a limited run of 50 brand new copies of the Daytona Coupe. That's still an exclusive club, more-so yet with some of the series run of cars being given an aluminum body!

In another way, the Daytona is exclusive within the Gran Turismo video game series, with its debut in GT2 way back on the original Playstation. It didn't reappear until over ten years later in GT6! That means I'd have to dust off the old PSX and pop in the original black game disc ;D Talk about exclusive!
A third reason for its exclusivity is the rarity of the car built of Lego. In any possible scale as of today's date, there's only 4-5 on the entire net! Make that 4-5 +1 ;D

For these reasons and more I'm happy to share my Minifig-scale Speed Champions build of the Daytona. Following are a few more pics, sans racing stripe:

Quoting Parrington Levens As one of the other as you say 5 other builders to have tried this car out of Lego, I must say well done on a wide! I think you got the shape nicely especially at that scale! She was a stunning car that's for sure. Looks almost like a fighter plane from WW2, just needs wings...
Thanks a lot, Parrington; your critique means a lot! Stunning indeed! That's an awesome point too! Even the paint scheme matches those carrier fighters hahahah wings and cannons xD
