Detailed Description

 Ilario's first ever 1:18 Scale Models

An absolutely stunning replica of one of the most gorgeous cars in history.  Only a few pieces available.

This is the 1949 Delahaye 175 S Roadster Saoutchik sn815023 Black, based on a drawing by Pierre Dumont.   A fine resin model in 1:18 Scale. Limited Edtion of just 20 Pieces

Created in 1949, this Delahaye built on a 175 chassis is a major work of bodybuilder Jacques Saoutchik.

The first owner was Sir John Gaule (England), later it belonged to the English actress Diana Dors.


The car is designed on the first new post-war Delahaye chassis and benefits from all the new technologies of that time.  But the great beauty of this roadster is in its lines, or rather in its curves.

The keeper wheels accentuate the impression of length, the chrome is used in profusion, the grille is overhung by a rostrum recalling the convertible Narval by Figoni / Falaschi.

This car is awarded in each of its appearances since 1949 and still attracts attention today by its extravagant and spectacular forms.   A real masterpiece of automotive history.  

A real masterpiece of modelcar not to miss. Very limited quantity.
