The extreme length of the Delage D-8 chassis gave coachbuilders the freedom to create streamlined cars with fashionably long hoods. The Aerosport was designed by Letourneur et Marchand of Paris and featured pillarless “hardtop” styling and a fin on the trunk. The styling was so highly regarded that an Aerosport was one of a pair of Delages chosen to represent the French government at the automotive display at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Discovered in a barn in France during the early 1990s, this Delage received a meticulous restoration and is painted its original colors. It was awarded the French Cup at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 1999.
