Delage’s famous first-series D8The Delage D8 was designed by Maurice Gaultier, who had come to Delage in 1910 to run the drivetrain department and then left to work for Georges Irat, but he returned in 1925 as the chief engineer. Its four-litre, pushrod overhead-valve straight-eight with five main bearings made 105 brake horsepower and was possessed with a smoothness and silence that put it in Hispano territory.
The D8 made its debut at the October 1929 Paris Salon, and its reception was ecstatic. It was a car designed for and intended to be the ideal basis for bespoke coachwork, and D8s became very popular on the European concours circuit, bearing bodies from all the renowned coachbuilders. Delage proudly boasted: “At the Concours d’Elegance held during 1930 in the principal cities of Europe, Delage Straight Eights received more awards than any other car”. It was, to quote another company mantra, “La Belle Voiture Française”, the beautiful French automobile.
This fantastic Delage D8 is standing in our showroom and we look forward hearing from you when you are interested in this Master Piece.
