THE FLYING KESTREL

A land-speed record-breaking 1935 Riley Kestrel 9.

Kestrel Beer have transformed a neglected Riley Kestrel, into a record-breaking machine which is sporting a 2.5 litre TFSI, 5-cylinder, turbocharged, Audi RS3 engine and 900bhp.

The Flying Kestrel was originally stored in pieces, in a barn since 1965. One of the main challenges faced during this renovation, was to ensure the car closely resembled the original Riley Kestrel 9, whilst simultaneously ensuring the car reaches record-breaking speeds. The Flying Kestrel achieved 7 land-speed records at Elvington Racetrack in June 2021.
