New pilot needs to come and try this 12/4 Special for size
Introduced in 1935, the 12/4 engine is a 4-cylinder 1496cc engine with twin SU carburettors, based on the previous Riley 9 engine including the crankcase and block as one unit, with twin camshafts mounted high in the engine block. This engine however is equipped with re-profiled Riley Sprite cams and high compression pistons.
Wilson pre-select 4-speed transmission.
This fabulous interpretation of what a Zagato bodied Riley Special could be was completed in 2006. Lightweight, it is a quick car considering the engine output is quoted at around 70 bhp.
Just 1550 miles have been covered since completion
