05-03-13, 09:53 PM
Reluctantly offered for sale is my Ram Cobra, times below demonstrate it is arguably the fastest Cobra replica in the UK. Although it is very rapid it is no monster and easy to drive.

When Tiff Needell drove the car in a Heritage GTCC race to pole this year he later commented in a magazine that, 'a well sorted Ram Cobra doesnt disapoint' and went on to say ' if you stuck my three best segment times together they would equal the time Jason Plato set testing the brand new £200,000 650bhp Noble M600'

Blow everything away on track day or win races. Although a race car this car was road registered.
