With this impressive Delage D8 from 1931, we can offer one of the showpieces of the French automobile industry from a manufacturer who only wanted the very best for his demanding customers. But even for cars of this quality, their existence came to an end. Fortunately some were saved, including this D8.

The car was purchased as a project in 1997 by a well-known German restaurateur and in phases, for no less than 20 years, restored to the highest level. There was no time pressure, but the challenge to show all theircraftsmanship to customers who visited the workshop, or better: the atelier. The project was also displayed on shows for several years and each year it was slightly further towards the completion of a unique car. Unique in design, but also in terms of outstanding quality, perfection and beautiful details.

In terms of design, the intention was to design a sporty body for two passengers, with plenty of room for luggage. The complete aluminum body therefore has a lot of space under the rear lid and for any luggage that must be immediately within reach, a custom-made wooden case is mounted on it. The super-tight sheet metal has perfect fittings that really couldn’t be better. Take a good look at how beautiful the curves of the fenders and boot lid are: a Moulin Rouge dancer could become jealous of it, to express it in French style. And of course everything is beautifully accentuated by the perfect French blue racing color.

And then the driving … really fantastic! And exactly what you can expect from a perfectly, in every detail restored pre-war. In this case not steering too heavily and feeling exactly what the wheel position is and on what kind of road surface the majestic Frenchman drives. And on the other hand, the long wheelbase and the large 21-inch tires, ensure great comfort. The 4.0 liter 8-cylinder engine produces a huge torque and a light-shifting gearbox give an intense contact with the mechanism. This is exactly what it’s all about when driving a pre-war. The experience of driving something special, relaxing, enjoying driving and having the feeling of being a real driver. That maybe sounds strange to those who have never driven with a pre-war, but in a more modern car everything goes so naturally and smoothly that the feeling of really being connected to the car is often hard to find.

This Delage D8 has everything the discerning owner has on his list: perfection in every detail, exclusivity and comfort mixed with sportiness.

Curious about the Delage? Feel free to make an appointment and we will gladly take the time to show and demonstrate you this special car.
