Rolls Royce 1914 Admiralty Pattern Armoured Car

Such was the reliability and robustness of the Rolls Royce 40/50 (“Silver Ghost”) that in 1914 the War Office decided that all Silver Ghost chassis were to be requisitioned to form the basis of a new armoured car. Thus the Rolls-Royce Armoured Car was born.

There were 3 main variants of the vehicle produced over the years – apart from the 1914 Admiralty Pattern Armoured Car variant there was the Rolls-Royce 1920 Pattern and Rolls-Royce 1924 Pattern.

The armoured car saw service in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India. Famously Lieutenant Colonel T.E. Lawrence “Lawrence of Arabia” employed a squadron of Rolls-Royce armoured cars in the Middle East where they were instrumental in his successes.

Armortek’s armoured car kit is based on the 1914 Admiralty Pattern Armoured Car . This version can be distinguished from the later variants by several prominent features, including: Spoked wheels, no ventilation slats on the front radiator armour, in-line visor ports at the front of the cabin and a slightly lower profile turret.

The Armortek 1914 Admiralty Pattern Armoured Car is sold as a kit for assembly.
