Xmoor Cars, owners of Riot Cars, bought the Riot Project from Sylva Autokits in April 2013. Sylva was founded in 1981 by renowned kit /race car designer Jeremy Phillips and for many of those years right up to today these cars have been at the forefront of club level motorsport scoring countless sprint, race and hill climb wins, securing many championships. The Riot also won the Complete Kit Car, “Car of the Year” following its release.
Riot Cars benefits greatly from this heritage, so now with a further 18 months of intensive development the new Riot Classic is easier to build and is back at the forefront of kit car design and performance.
Thank you for your interest in Riot Cars!
As a self confessed petrol head I’m passionate about every aspect of our industry. What some people may call obsession I call attention to detail. Every single component from the bolts to the bodywork design receives my attention to ensure that it provides the best performance at the best price. I’m a firm believer that the result of clever, innovative design and superb British engineering can be summed up as: Brilliantly Simple = Simply Brilliant.
I may be considered a little old school in the function over form debate, but the result is our cars offer outstanding performance and engineering that few others can match. However, it’s not just about how well made our cars are, or how well they handle, it’s about what you the customer gets out of it. I want to ensure that you enjoy the whole process from putting the first nut and bolt together to driving it. During this process we become part of a community of like minded enthusiasts with many customers becoming good friends. It may have been said before, but the most important component in our cars is the nut holding the steering wheel!
