The auto happened taking after talks between J. G. Repel Thomas, configuration engineer at Leyland Motors, Reid Railton, his colleague and Henry Spurrier, director of Leyland Motors. Leyland had made 50 four-barrel motor squares proposed to be utilized within quick conveyance vans, yet the venture was not continued with. The three talked over what to do with the pieces, and the building of a 2-litre brandishing auto was concurred. A model was manufactured utilizing an Enfield-Allday and the auto taken to Brooklands for the 1924 Easter Meeting. The motor had an overhead camshaft with the same curious valve springing utilizing leaf springs as those found on Parry Thomas’ Leyland Eight. Drive was to the back wheels through a Moss 4-rate gearbox and ENV winding slant back hub. It was one of the first English autos to utilize an electric fuel pump. Processing was begun in 1926 at the Letchworth works of two variants, a low-body brandishing model and a high-suspension touring sort. Two and four-seater figures were accessible on the high-case at £525 and presumably just the two-seater on the low-frame at £550.
Repel Thomas passed on in March 1927 endeavoring to break the World Land Speed Record in his auto Babs, and with his passing Railton lost investment in the Arab and the Letchworth works shut after just in the ballpark of 6 or 7 autos were made. The remaining segments were purchased by Thomson & Taylor based at Brooklands and a couple of additional autos were amassed. This was something of a compassion, as the auto was an amazing entertainer with the two-seater high body handy for 80 mph, and the Super Sports was said to have been fit for going 90 mph (140 km/h). One high skeleton is known to have been supercharged and is said to have attained 105 mph (169 km/h).
