A customised Rolls-Royce made for Lord Mountbatten that left the prestigious manufacturers furious has emerged for sale at £230,000. <br />
<br />
The firm struck off the guarantee for the 1924 Silver Ghost after he ordered the removal of the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy mount and replaced it with a naval signaller, semaphoring the letter 'M'.<br />
<br />
This unusual request means it is one of the few Rolls-Royces without the logo and appears at auction after being restored by the National Motor Musuem and being exhibited at Sandringham Palace.
