While RAM Automotive cars look outwardly similar to other Cobra replicas, they are somewhat different under their double‑skinned fibreglass shell. Rather than the usual ladder frame chassis, there's a full spaceframe instead, developed in conjunction with the race car constructors, Reynard, which gives increased rigidity and thus offers handling benefits too, as does the Jaguar XJ6‑derived suspension. The steering rack is courtesy of an MGB.

While many RAM Cobra replicas were fitted with a mildly‑tweaked Rover V8, in some cases a large American V8 unit was used, to give giving similar performance to the original Shelby Cobra. That seems to be the case with this example, which has a 5811cc Ford V8 unit installed.

The Scozia Metallic (a Fiat shade) car was built by the vendor in 1999, when it also passed an SVA test. We're told that the car has only had summer use and always been garaged. It was last on the road during 2016; the last MoT expired in June 2016. The odometer shows 2765 miles, which appears to be the total mileage since the RAM was built.

The history folder includes the V5C (showing the vehicle as a RAM), which shows no previous owners prior to the vendor. There are also operating instructions on opening the bonnet, starting procedure and engine cooling, plus paperwork and receipts relating to the original build, including the SVA test and registration. The MoT certificates span 2002 to 2015, with the first one ‑ in July 2002 ‑ at 260 miles. The original build manual is enclosed with the paperwork too, as is a 2015 newspaper clipping from a show the RAM appeared at.
