I wouldn't want to get hit by that Rolls Silver Ghost—it looks unstoppable!
When I was 20 years old I used to work for an elderly Cambridge graduate who went to school with "Charlie" Rolls. He describes him as driving his own car to school (with an engine he designed) which was so noisy you could hear him coming for a mile. Charlie died in 1910 at 32, becoming the first Briton to die in a plane crash. In the same year he did a double crossing in 95 minutes of the English Channel in an aircraft, being the first to do that.
This 1912 Silver Ghost "Corgi" was auctioned for a record $7 million 5 years ago. A lot of them were converted to ambulances in the first world war.
