CSX 9000 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe MKII

The North American customers can be now at peace as the CSX 9000 series Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe MKII is available on their market. The car features different improvements, upgrades and a lot of new elements. This vehicle was developed to replace the SPF Daytona Coupe and will have a fiber glass body or an aluminum one. It will feature Shelby signature door handles and seat covers and the stopping power will be provided by Shelby branded brakes. The seats were repositioned and the steering wheel moved over to the right in order to increase the clearance between the head of the driver and the roof as well as between the left hand of the driver and the A-post. The result was a much more comfortable seating environment. The doors are fitted with electric windows and the new external door handles facilitate entry without the use of a remote key. To improve interior air flow, visibility has been significantly improved. The carmaker also offers improved front and rear independent suspension for the gear heads. The new design facilitates the adjustment of camber, caster and toe adjustment up front as well as easy camber and toe adjustment at the rear. The front and anti-roll bars have been redesigned to eliminate noise, the chassis was also stiffened. For better oil cooling, the oil cooler has been separated from the radiator and fitted in an area with adequate air flow. The heater and climate controls for the air-conditioning have no cables and are operated through servo units and also for keeping the modern design, the side muffler pipes have been increased in diameter to ensure a deeper rumble. The wheel wells have been adapted to accommodate 18-inch Shelby Cobra style rims. The first two models have already been delivered and dealers are taking orders for later deliveries now. Only two units will be built per month. The price for the fiber glass bodied CSX9000 starts at $89.900 and the aluminum one is offered for $195.900.
