Description

Delage was a French luxury automobile and racing car company founded in 1905 by Louis Delage in Levallois-Perret near Paris. They produced some of the history's fastest race cars and the first V12 racing engine. Only Delage and Mercedes-Benz produced cars that dominated Grand Prix racing, won the Indianapolis 500, and held the World Land Speed Record.

In 1929 at the London Motor Show was introduced the most elegant of the Delage marque, the D8 series. The straight-eight OHV engine with capacity of 4 liters was immensely strong and able to accelerate the car to 140 km/h.

Only 625 cars were produced from 1930 to 1933. Our D8L was fitted with limousine bodywork by Letourneur & Marchand. The interior is still original and well preserved.
