Riley Le Mans Special
restoration | modification | fabrication | paint
This Riley 12/4 rally and trial special has its original chassis shortened. Project Heaven were tasked with complete rebuild of the body and frame at the rear to evoke the aesthetics of the contemporary racing offerings from Aston Martin.
The rear frame now features a dedicated bespoke tool kit compartment and a high-capacity fuel tank designed and fabricated in-house, fitted to the new raised rear. A dual spare wheel carrier has also been fabricated and fitted. Project Heaven undertook a full respray, created new cycle wings for the front, adjusted suspension arrangement and steering geometry and engine improvements.
We completely reupholstered the interior and created a tonneau with quick-access compartment when rallying, developed a custom full exhaust and fitted a newly cored ‘honeycomb’ radiator.
