Riley 12/4 Sprite
The Riley Sprite was produced from 1935 to 1938 and its chassis was based on the preceding 'MPH' model. Riley's proven twin-camshaft layout was retained for the new Hugh Rose-designed 1.5-liter four. Body styles included the two-seater sports and three saloons with wheelbases that ranged from 106- to 112.5-inches. The longest wheelbase version was the six-light Kestrel while the shortest was the all-steel Merlin. The final saloon was the Adelphi. Depending on the carburetor setup and tuning, the Sprite produced between 45/46 bhp to 59/61 bhp.
