The Sports was a classic English sports car powered by the saloon’s 1.8-litre engine, and closely following the established template that proved so popular in export markets. The engine itself was intriguing because it aped Riley’s pre-war design, and delivered enough power for a top speed of 85mph. Later models gained independent front suspension, and proved to be excellent handling cars, while the 2.5-litre Sports that followed in 1950 added extra power into the mix, becoming a genuine 100mph four-seater sports car in the process.
