Factory Five Racing
Daytona Coupe Type 65
Viper Metallic Red/Stuttgart Silver stripes

3/4-frontal [driver side] shot above is hotlinked [same view, larger size].

This grand touring Cobra Coupe is finished in PPG Viper Metallic Red/Stuttgart Silver stripes/clearcoat and outfitted throughout with the very finest componentry. No corners were shaved in the production of this glistening red reptile.

It was built and outfitted to be a gran turismo driving machine, but so far it's been mostly
a pampered/trailered show car with only 3,555 miles [5,700 km] logged.

22 March 2015: You can mark my Viper Red Factory Five Racing Daytona Coupe SOLD! That scarlet beauty is now in the stable of a fellow Coupe enthusiasts a couple of hours north of here (in New Jersey). Many thanks to your site's celebrated 'global reach,' and also to my good friend Heather Vespe, who followed Curt's photography tips to the letter... and the results speak for themselves! Bob Dilks

The spectacular Daytona Coupe photography you see on this page was brought to you by Bob's good friend
   Heather Vespe using her Nikon D5000 digicam and its standard 18–55mm zoom lens...
Heather scrupulously/conscientiously heeded this site's photography tips.
