The Lynx was the biggest selling, longest running,most surviving   open  top car Riley built. Versions appeared  on every chassis except  the V8. The 1933 was the largest seller as the hood folded back into the boot making finding the battery isolator a grappling session through acres of canvas but looking stunning. As a four seater open car it  was more family friendly and at times woefully underpriced .  Upgraded for  the 1936 and ’37 seasons and the early part of 1938 to a 12/4, some with a road-going version of the high performance engine from the TT winning Sprite model,  capable of almost 85mph. Chassis number  A genuine  Lynx Sprite can be identified by the ‘SS’ Chassis number   prefix.)

*Limited car data is included here to allow checking if a real car ie started life as a Lynx, still a Lynx from club data. As not a Riley  motor club member information is only from the Riley register and part masked for your security. Any car may be checked by the clubs and if a member often extensive history is known. Cars are often better purchased within the clubs as cheaper, more likely to be genuine  with declared faults etc*
