                      became synonymous with style and elegance.

 

Between 1925 and 1940, many exquisite designs came out of Paris during this Art Deco period of luxury, glamour and exuberance. With the prestigious collaboration of many master coachbuilders, this highly desirable blend of style and performance elevated Delage cars as highly collectible works of art. They were bespoke and beautifully crafted by artists such as Pourtout, De Villars, Chapron, LeTourneur et Marchand, Figoni & Falaschi and Saoutchik.

 

The car market following WWII had ultimately moved on from extravagance and into the mainstream. Following its merger with Delahaye, Delage ceased operations in 1953. Delage; the highest expression of French taste.

 

Such excellence must be honoured.
