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.)
