The Riley 9 HP was largely designed by two of the Riley brothers, Percy and Stanley. The older Percy designed the engine and Stanley was responsible for the chassis, suspension and body. Introduced in 1926, the Nine engine, was the most successful Riley engine, both in competitions and sales. Numerous successes as generated instantly on the London circuit of Brooklands convinced Percy Riley to start production of a small series himself with the so called “9 HP Speed Model” then "Brooklands Speed Model" and finally just "Brooklands".
We'll tell the story of this model on the occasion of its anniversary or when it will reach a sufficient number of cars.
