1937 Delage D8-120S.
Looks like the bat-mobile :)
Oh my God. This is real? 1937, but the design absolutely gorgeous.
Jimmy: It’s real. Some more shots.
Looks like the inspiration for the Wiesmann MF 3.
A true work of art! I’d love to see what the designers of cars like this would do today.
Didn’t Ace and Gary drive one of these?
Wow… what a incredibly designed car!
I love the way the windows are shaped.
Looks really similar to the 2009 Morgan Aero Maxor…probably viceversa!
This car is currently on display at The High Museum of Art in Atlanta as part of The Allure of the Automobile exhibit- check it out at www.high.org!
There is a guy in Chicago that is restoring one of these right now. It is not the exact same care but close. There were 12 of these made and only 8 in existence and the one he is working on is the only one that hasn’t been restored.
Currently the car is in France getting body work done.
He just got a copy of the original drawings from the car too. Each of these cars, although the same model all had it’s unique characteristics.
