Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe - The autobiography of CSX2300 - Published Reviews

Book on Daytona Coupe


Auto Express, March 2020

'It's impressive to see a volume with such high production values and so much detail about a car that's so rare - only six Daytona Coupés were built. It's a well researched story, and as always we enjoy this series' selections of high-quality studio shots at the end of the book.'

Best of British

'I could not afford the deposit on one of this breed, so I will have to make do with lapping up all the excitement and atmosphere which is conveyed in Rinsey Mills' ace tribute to one of the six original coupes, CSX2300.

'...As we have come to expect from the Porter Press Great Cars series (of which this is No14), there is exhaustive, well-illustrated detail on what went before, the development, full race gen, the rivers and recent history of the cars. All in all, another winning volume.'

'Under the current state of ‘house arrest’, having viewed the latest Hollywood blockbuster chronicling the on and off-track battle undertaken between Ford (Carroll Shelby) and Ferrari (‘Le Mans ’66’), my resolve to conclude the review of the latest Porter Press blockbuster was strengthened. I am delighted to tell you which of the pair I preferred…it was NOT the movie! I make zero apology for being an ardent fan of Porter Press’s publications. As the fourteenth in the series of ‘Great Cars’, its 336pp follow the cover sleeve precepts of elegant photography on a gloss black background, which looks great on either coffee table, or bookshelf, and deals with the model-specific CSX2300.

'…Texan Shelby was the means to that end and the author of this outstanding tome, Rinsey Mills, is probably better qualified than any other Shelby, or Cobra fan, having compiled the great man’s biography, which was published just weeks prior to his passing, as well as several other Cobra related titles. Designed by the infamous Peter Brock, who also wrote the book’s foreword, CSX2300’s racing history is explored in tremendous detail.'
