1934 RILEY SPRITE TT REP / €109000

In summary

Riley is in 1890 a British manufacturer of bicycles.

In 1913, Riley devoted himself to the manufacture of entire automobiles.

The first model, the 17/30, was introduced at the 1913 London show.

Shortly after, Stanley Riley founded the Nero Engine Company to produce his own 10-hp (7.5 kW) 4-cylinder car.

In 1918, Riley’s blue diamond badge, designed by Harry Rush, appears.

Riley grew rapidly in the 1920s and 1930s.

The Riley Engine Company produces 4, 6, and 8-cylinder engines, while Midland builds more than a dozen different bodies. Riley models at this time include:

  • Saloons: Adelphi, ‘Continental’ (Close-coupled Touring Saloon), Deauville, Falcon, Kestrel, Mentone, Merlin, Monaco, Stelvio, Victor
  • Cups: Ascot, Lincock
  • Tourers: Alpine, Lynx, Gamecock
  • Sports: Brooklands, Imp, MPH, Sprite
  • Limousines: Edinburgh, Winchester

Introduced in 1926, Percy Riley’s revolutionary Riley 9 engine – a small, high-revving unit – is ahead of its time in many ways.

It quickly attracts the attention of preparers and coachbuilders for sports purposes.

Officially supported by Riley, the Brooklands, as well as subsequent developments and variations such as “Ulster” Imp, MPH and Sprite, were among the most successful cars and private racing cars of the late 20s and early 20s. 1930’s.

At Le Mans in 1934, Rileys finished 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th and 12th place, winning the Rudge-Whitworth Cup, the team prize, two class awards and the ladies’ prize.

The strength and longevity of the engine design are exemplified by Mike Hawthorn’s early success after the Second World War in the pre-war Rileys, particularly his father’s Sprite. By 1936, however, the company had grown too large, with too many models and few common rooms, and the emergence of Jaguar in Coventry was a direct challenge.

In 1938, Riley became part of the Nuffield Organization and merged with the British Leyland Motor Corporation in 1968.

In July 1969, British Leyland announced the immediate end of production Riley, it is now owned by BMW.
