We were quite taken by this extremely tasteful and beautiful D8 Delage that the Patter-son Collection exhibited at the Louisville Concours d’Elegance recently. It was chosen as the best of show winner in 2010 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance because of its exceptional quality. It is powered by a 4060 cc straight eight on a very low chassis which drew on the company’s long competition history.
The car carries a custom body by the Carrosserie DeVillars of Nice, France. The company was formed by an Amercan, Frank Jay Gould, who moved to France in 1910. The firm he founded focused on style and perfection which is very evident in this example that was shown at the 1933 Salon de Paris.
