"British Navy captain Murray Sueter,... wanted high-speed armoured vehicles capable of reconnaissance missions and raids, so he came up with a simple solution –to get the biggest, most high-powered and over-engineered vehicles available and simply bolt armour to them. The result of his endeavours was the armoured Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost. The 6 cylinder, 7.2 litre engine allowed these cars to rocket to 60mph, but they were incredibly expensive –costing the equivalent of £832,205 in today’s money.

"The Silver Ghosts were used widely in the flat deserts of Jordan and Syria, where Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas Edward Lawrence – better known as Lawrence of Arabia –launched lightning raids against Turkish outposts..."
