DELAGE D8-120

Sports saloon, aerodynamic saloon, drophead coupé, various specials.

As for D8-100 but 130ins wheelbase and 3.9 axle, which should give it 100mph but doesn't quite, owing to excessive weight: a Grand Sport Hotchkiss or 135MS Delahaye will show it a clean pair of heels. Horrible Cord -style plated exhaust headers, but spectacular bodies by Labourdette, Chapron, Saoutchik, etc. Once again, Coachcraft did the British-market sports saloons and dropheads.
