Riley 9 Lynx. (1934-35)

The Lynx was essentially a topless Kestrel, sharing the same 'sports' engines, and other features. It was initially launched at the same time as the Kestrel, and sold well. For the 1934 season, the original 2 door model was replaced with a 4-door model, which more closely resembled the large Lynx models.
The 4-door 4-seater bodywork made it more practical than the many 2-seater sports that Riley built, while the cut aways in the front doors gave it a sporty look, resembling the Riley racing cars.

The Lynx remained a top seller through 1934, perhaps selling 600 or more. However, 1935 was by comparison a very poor year with only a handful of cars identified, although this may have been caused by an early demise as many 9 models were discontinued for 1936.
