Cobra Daytona Coupe #59:
chassis# CSX2602--team Filipinetti car in 1:18 scale
Edition by Exoto--only 3500 Team Filipinetti #59 cars have been
produced, with a 10,000 guaranteed limit on production. Each car
is individually serial-numbered.
(The Filipinetti Coupe) historical footnotes:
Daytona Coupe (LeMans, 19-20 June 1965, British drivers Sutcliffe
& Harper, ran in the distinctive Red
Swiss colors only for the '65 LeMans event.) This was the fifth
Coupe completed and the fourth completed at Carrozzeria Gransport.
Competed in six 1965 races (Daytona, Sebring, Monza, Spa, Nürburgring
and LeMans) and driven by Rick Muther, John Timanus, Lew Spencer,
Jim Adams, Phil Hill, Jack Sears, John Whitmore, Peter Sutcliffe
and Peter Harper. This CSX2602 condensed history was extracted
from Pete Brock's spectacular book "Cobra Daytona Coupes."
The #59 Filipinetti Coupe is the only CSX2602-chassis car replicated
second in Exoto's Daytona Coupe Collectors Series. This
Red Cobra Daytona Coupe was campaigned in
1965 by Scuderia Filipinetti. 1:18 scale, weighs
kilogram. The details (as on the Viking Blue #5 car) are absolutely
exquisite, all the way down to the spokes and Cobra logo on the
steering wheel, the stainless-steel fine-screen vent covers on
the front fenders, the Weber-equipped 289" small-block V8,
the accurately-scaled ignition wiring and battery cables, the
Halibrand wheels and the superbly-detailed Goodyear blue-line
tires, the chromed rivets along the circumference of the tinted
rear window. Even the dashboard gauges are finished to the very
smallest details (the gauge needles are red colored, and even
the speedometer's redline mark is indicated). The doors, the engine
cover and the rear hatchback window are all hinged and operable.

now out of production,
and the collector price has taken off. Recently we were still
selling these cars at $99.95; as of the date of this notice (January
2000) the going price of the highly-collectible #5 Daytona Coupes
ranges from $250 to $300 (and it's a safe bet that it'll continue
to soar); we're searching the planet to get the best price we
can and pass the savings on to you, on both of these models. There's
little doubt in our mind that the remaining models (#6, #15 and
#26 cars) of these Exoto Daytona Coupe masterpieces will soar
similarly in value among collectors as each of them goes out of
don't take our word for it: here's a report
from AutoWeek magazine, June 22-28, 1998 issue, page 9:
die-cast is a hit!
new die-cast of the world champion Shelby Cobra Daytona Competition
Coupe was the top-seller for March-April at "Car's the Star,"
a Kansas City (Missouri, USA)-based auto art/gift gallery. It
edged the new Mercedes CLK GTR die-cast.
President Philip L. Schroeder said that the highly-detailed Daytona
is the best die-cast he's seen. "I was a bit surprised at
the demand for a $120 die-cast car," he said.
Cobra Daytona Coupe historical footnotes:
The RHS windshield wiper: The only Exoto Daytona Coupe with a
RHS (passenger-side) windshield wiper is the #6 (Amon/Neerpasch)
car... in keeping with the outifitting of the original racing
the others currently in production (#5, #15, #26, #56 and #59)
appropriately have no RHS wiper.
Several Daytona Coupe collectors have asked us why the passenger-side
seat of the original coupes (and of the Exoto die-casts) is angled
about 15° or so to the right. I phoned Pete Brock today (24
June 1998) and posed the question to him. His reply: "The
rear wheel wells of The Coupe encroached too far into the passenger
compartment for the seats to fit square; the obvious solution
(of reducing the size of the wheel well to allow the proper attitude
of the seat) was applied for the driver's side only, since in
any event there was no passenger in most competition driving."
