An elegant vintage motor car in fine condition throughout having been mechanically fettled by its last owner. Newly re-trimmed in leather, with new wood and carpets. Very good paint work. Not uncomfortable to drive for an over 6 footer being a limousine. A very light car to drive, with good road manners. 60 mph cruising.
The Delage D8 S is the sportive version of the D8, with 20 horse power more. It remains the most iconic Delage tourer produced. Delage only built around 99 Delage D8 S against 2,000 Delage D8. Â This 1932 Delage D8 S Cabriolet chassis no. 38237 is a one-off car as it is the unique example designed by De CorvaÃ¯a and bodied by Pourtout. Moreover, it was exhibited on the de CorvaÃ¯a stand at the 1933 Paris Motor Show. Â This particular Delage was delivered new in France (first registered on the 1st of January, 1932). Then, it belonged to one of the most distinguished Delage collectors, AndrÃ© Surmain - famous Chef and also known as the founder of the restaurant LutÃ¨ce in New-York - who purchased it in 1966. He brought the car to Chapron in order to restore it. AndrÃ© Surmain sold this beautiful Delage D8 S to Albert Prost in 1978. Â The D8 S was regularly driven by Albert Prost during his 36-year ownership. The car even won the Mougins Concours dâElegance organized for the 2 nd Delage International meeting in the late 70âs. Â Today, this Delage D8 S is in remarkably well-preserved condition with a very subtle patina. The interior is "like new" and the odometer shows 21,240 km fr
