Like many British automakers, Coventry-based Riley started out as a bicycle manufacturer, but in the early 20th century, one of its founder's sons, Percy Riley, built his first self-propelled carriage.
The automotive industry turned out to be more promising, and in 1912 the company switched entirely to the manufacture of motorized vehicles.
Between the world wars, Riley produced a number of successful racing cars that won local competitions at the Brooklands track and won prizes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Along with them, prestigious 4- and 6-cylinder models with a large selection of body styles were also sold.
In 1938 the company went bankrupt and Lord Nuffield added it to his business empire.
After the war, Riley still maintained formal independence, but in 1952 the Nuffield group became part of the British Motors Corporation, whose management adhered to a strategy of unifying models from different brands.
Since the mid 50s. Riley cars began to duplicate products of Wolseley and other brands in BMC, which led to a decrease in sales.
As a result, in 1969, the newly formed British Leyland concern abandoned the production of machines under the Riley brand.
