Detailed Description


 

 

 This car was commissioned by Louis Delage himself for the 1937 Paris Auto Show and as his personal car.
The design was entrusted to Georges Paulin, principal stylist for coachbuilder Marcel Pourtout.
Built on a D8-120 S chassis, the car's suspension is lower than standard, and Paulin was able to create a sleek aerodynamic masterpiece.

In contrast to other contemporary designers, Paulin did not use any chrome filets or external decorations on the body to emphasize the design.
Rather, the continuous curves and tapers of the all-aluminum coachwork are allowed to speak for themselves.

At some time, the Delage was modified by another French coachbuilder, Saoutchik. The "updates" were apparently carried out in 1953 for a M. William Raidy in France, to include a re-fashioned nose with a rounded radiator cowl and chrome louvres running horizontally below the small new radiatorand grille, a chromed windscreen and a bigger rear window. When the car was restored, the original Paulin-Pourtout front end was reconstructed
