1968 Riley 4/Seventy-Two at the Maxey Classic Car Show, August 2018
This Riley 4/Seventy-Two car from 1968 was on display at the annual Maxey Classic Car and Bike Show in August 2018. A total of 14,151 4/Seventy-Two cars were manufactured by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) between 1961 and 1969.
The 4/Seventy-Two was equipped with a 1,622 cc engine capable of a top speed of 86 miles per hour. Average fuel consumption was calculated at 25 miles per gallon. At the time of its launch in 1961, the version with a manual gearbox retailed for 1,087 (GBP 1,087); adjusted for inflation, this was equivalent to 23,805 (GBP 23,805) at 2018 prices.
The discontinuation of the 4/Seventy-Two and its sister 4/Sixty-Eight model in 1969 spelled the demise of the Riley marque. At the time of writing, no further vehicles had been produced under this brand name, which was nonetheless still owned by BMW of Germany and so could potentially be revived.
