RILEY BROOKLANDS

2-seater sports, 4-seater tourer.

Now very much sought after, the classic Nine sports car. Initial development was by Parry Thomas and Reid Railton and the car ended up using a new chassis, 101/2ins shorter than the Nine and dropped behind the front axle, underslung at the rear. The engine had high compression pistons, two exhaust cams, a four branch exhaust manifold, special oil pump and twin carbs. The whole ensemble was clothed in a rakish and low two-seater body with a long pointed tail and pretty, full length cycle type wings. Very expensive to buy today, the most notable racing success was the 1932 TT win.
