Foose Improves On A Superformance Shelby Daytona

Very nice upgrades ...
These days it seems like no one has a sense of humor or can stand real criticism, but they can safely hand it out. In a recent article on Chip Foose that created an updated design for the DeLorean DMC-12, some readers were offended for not showering the man with compliments on his drawing. Apparently they feel like I just hate everything Foose does that is really not the truth. To prove them wrong, I'll praise where it has to do with this superformance Shelby Daytona, improved by Foose himself.

First of all, hats off to the man who didn't turn his nose up on a sequel, as if the project was somehow beneath him. I never understood why people have this kind of attitude, except maybe the few well-heeled individuals who own original Shelbys and just want to show how superior they are.
It would be pretty hard to screw up a car as beautiful as the Shelby Daytona, but in a sketch, maybe Foose would do just that. If you're just drawing something on paper, it's a good time to experiment and make mistakes - that's one of the beauties of rendering. But when it comes to working with real cars, Foose has a pretty good track record.
When you look at Overhaulin you might think this car looks familiar. It was featured on the show back in 2019. The changes to the car range from a gradient paint job to redesigned air vents, and while many of them are subtle, the overall effect is fantastic.

This superformance was originally designed by Peter Brock, the man who designed the Shelby Daytona at the time. As a result, I'm sure Foose was in awe of it, and he wasn't mad about it. That may have been at the direction of his client, but whatever is behind his work, the result is undeniably beautiful.
Foose also went into performance by dropping a Roush 427 Windsor V8 with 550 horsepower under the hood. A customer-specific Magnaflow exhaust is screwed onto it. It sounds mean as hell and I'm sure it's a blast behind the wheel.
Let's go: a car customized by Foose I love. I'm pretty sure that if Chip Foose came across any of my articles criticizing his work, then he lost sleep. You don't get to the top by getting out of shape for not having someone shower you with praise.
