The RM series, which came out immediately after the Second World War, was highly-successful, combining mechanical innovations, like independent front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering, with traditional coachbuilding qualities. The four-door sporting saloons in 1 -litre and 2 -litre versions were fast, comfortable cars with notably good roadholding. The 2 -litre was especially quick, being able to exceed 90mph, something that few cars of the time could achieve. Drophead coupe and roadster versions followed, with less success, and the RM line ended with the ill-fated Pathfinder model, a result of mismanagement by Riley's owners, BMC.
