The M8 Light Armored Car was a 6x6 armored car produced by the Ford Motor Company during World War II.

As the development of the M8 armored car started, the plan was faster than the tank deployment. Tank development in the conditions of the war was progressing so fast that 19 mm thick armor and the 37-mm cannon were totally inadequate for this purpose soon. Goal was to return in a different quality of the M8, namely with its 96 km/h for a huge speed, and so that failed tank destroyer turned into a formidable scout car.

The nearly eight-ton M8 saw his first combat action with the British in September 1943, during the conquest of Sicily. British named it "Greyhound", that naturalized soon for all allied troops. By the end of 1944 11,667 units were produced before Ford production was switched to M20 optimized for reconnaissance and command tasks. Some M8 and M20 armored cars are still used in police, militia and military forces of some countries.
