The ONLY red Cobra Daytona Coupe.

This is chassis CSX 2602, which had the distinction of being the only Cobra Daytona Coupe to have ever raced in the national red and white colors of Switzerland. This attractive color combination was the well known livery of the famous Swiss racing team, the Scuderia Filipinetti. The latter had already carved a reputation for themselves with their very well prepared, and successfully raced, Ferrari entries. So when Ford used up their allotment of entries for the 1965 Le Mans race, they prevailed on Georges Filipinetti (owner of the team), to buy one of his annual entries. Hence the unusual color scheme.

Peter Sutcliffe and Peter Harper (well known Ferrari drivers) were the teams drivers at Le Mans. They vigorously raced the red and white Cobra Daytona Coupe until the 10th hour when a blown engine put them out of the race. After Le Mans, chassis CSX 2602 was returned to Alan Mann Racing; repainted in the Shelby American team colors and never raced again.

Prior to the Le Mans race, chassis CSX 2602 was also raced at Daytona (Rick Muther and John Timanus) in 1965, Sebring (Lew Spencer, Jim Adams, and Phil Hill) in 1965, Monza (Jack Sears and Sir John Whitmore) in 1965, and Nurburgring (Jack Sears and Frank Gardner) also in 1965.
