WHO WE ARE
Teamwork makes the dream work
The Blue Diamond Riley Services team has years of experience with Rileys. As owners and enthusiasts ourselves, we understand that your Riley isn’t simply a car, it’s a member of your family – that’s why we would like you to be part of ours.
Rekindling the magic of the marque
Our workshop is where we do what we know and love. Some of the most historically significant examples of the Riley marque have been restored under our roof, but to us, every project is as special as the next. Whether it is restoration, service, repair or rally preparation that your Riley requires, it’s in safe and capable hands at Blue Diamond Riley Services.
New and second-hand parts for your Riley
It is inevitable that when working with cars designed and built over 80 years ago, some components cannot be repaired or restored and may need replacing. We offer an extensive range of parts for all Riley models from 1927 to 1939. Over the years, we have worked with specialist manufacturers to reproduce parts that are no longer available, so if we cannot source the part required to keep your Riley on the road, we will call upon their expertise to make it.
Race and rally event experts
Real winners prepare their cars properly, and our knowledge is based on first-hand experience. With a track record of trouble-free eventing, we take part in a variety of races and rallies across the globe so that we know exactly what a Riley needs to get it ready for a challenge. If you have an event in mind, let us help you make it happen.
