Leno Drives Pete Brock's Re-Engineered Daytona Coupe

Test Drive

An already incredible car is re-engineered decades after it first raced Ferraris.

Pete Brock is the man behind the original Shelby Daytona Coupe and the first Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. You could say he is an automotive genius and legend. Several decades after he helped Carroll Shelby turn the Cobra into the Daytona, he went back to the drawing board to revisit his old creation. The result was essentially a new version of the Daytona – if it were to have been built 50 years after the original, that is.

Newly retired "The Tonight Show" host Jay Leno is back at his garage full-time, where he’s visited by a Brock Coupe owner who’s made some further modifications of his own.
