RIOT CLASSIC KIT INFORMATION

It was our intention from the very outset to take Kit Cars to a new level of quality by making Riot Cars simple and pleasurable to build, with a factory finish easily achievable by customers of all abilities.

The Riot classic has to be one of the easiest and least expensive quality kit cars to build with many parts “built in” that would  usually be a separate purchases on other kits.

This also means an inexperienced builder shouldn’t have any problem getting a factory looking finish and that all important IVA pass.  The only donor parts required are the engine and gearbox from a Ford Fiesta with all the other parts required being available to buy new. Refurbished uprated gearboxes and new engines are also available.

As testament to just how good the Riot chassis really is nearly half of sales are for track / competition machines.
