I'd choose the original?? Who wouldn't?
You can build this car for $40K - $50k - an original is worth $8M and up - if you can get someone to sell one of only six made. This is more fun to drive than an original, you can actually enjoy driving it without worrying about your investment.

I can see the resemblance, heck if I couldn't I'd be blind. I can also tell the slight difference, It's a great looking car, but I'd choose the original.

As I can see, it's a replica of the Shelby Daytona with a more modern engine, transmission and tires. But it also appears to be fatter and heavier than the original car. Strangely, the power output is rather low as for a 2000 car.

I would prefer the original one.. if I just had a chance to see one of the actual Daytonas.

Is it OK to add this one? Because I've seen other person add GTM. It's road legal thought.
