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.
