We know is that this D-Type recreation was built by Realm(RAM) construction, with a fiberglass body, probably in the late 80s, beginning of 90s. Realm Engineering of Honeybourne in Worcestershire has built up a fine reputation over almost four decades for its RAM recreations. In particular, their Jaguar D-types which benefitted from chassis design input by Reynard Racing resulting in greater strength and ultimately better road-holding. After a three-hour stint behind the wheel of a Realm D-Type Sir Jack Brabham commented: "That's a damn sight better than the original!" Richard Noble has one of his own, and Sir Stirling Moss OBE said: "You guys have done an excellent job here, you should be proud." Jaguar Quarterly magazine described the car as 'impressive' with handling 'beyond question' and 'a whole bucketload of fun'. This, short-nose example, of Jaguar's legendary Le Mans-winning D-Type Jaguar features steel-braced glass fibre bodywork with an aluminium passenger-carrying style tub with full-width windscreen first seen on the works cars at Le Mans in 1955. With almost exclusively Jaguar running gear, unlike some its rivals, the RAM is described as having: "undisputed mechanical integrity." With its correct Dunlop style Knock-Off wheels, and lovely patina, the car is frequently mistaken for an original. The engine fires up on the button and runs extremely well even at tick-over. The exhaust note is modest at idle but clearly, makes all the right noises when ‘on song'. In addition, the car is ageing very nicely indeed with the bodywork and interior displaying gentle use.  Belgian road registration.
