The car is special to me because as VP of Product Development at Ford, we worked with Carroll Shelby to develop this fully functional concept car, with the intent of putting it into production as a follow-on to the 2005 Ford GT.

The Cobra Concept, aka “Daisy”, featured an all-aluminum chassis using the Ford GT suspension and rear mounted transaxle. It is powered by a 605hp prototype V10 - one of the 4 research engines in existence. Sadly, the Cobra Concept was never put into production. Through a fortuitous set of circumstances, Ford decided to put the Cobra Concept up for auction 3 years ago to raise money for the restoration of the Henry Ford Mansion. Unfortunately, Ford lawyers disabled the car for liability reasons.

It was my good fortune to acquire “Daisy”, developed with Carroll and my engineering team, to make her fully operational again. It was recently featured on Season 6, Episode 1 of Jay Leno’s Garage. The build of the Cobra Concept with Carroll was also fully chronicled in the show “Rides: Codename Daisy”. Detailed information on the 2004 Shelby Cobra Concept is included in my book, “The Last Shelby Cobra.” It tells the story of how my friendship with Carroll grew from our first meeting in 1987 As we continued to work on projects over the following 25 years: Viper, Ford GT, Shelby Cobra Concept, Shelby GR1, Shelby GT500 and many more.
