1937 Delage D8 120 S Aero coupé, Coachwork by Pourtout
The French phenomenon of Delage caught my imagination and took me into a new world of form and colour. Silver, grey and black added a magnificent restraint to the design. It was the most sleek
and futuristic design in cars. An object of both desire and worship: a tribute of human hands to the timelessness of beauty: a tribute to the cubists who were celebrated not too long ago in France. And now Art Deco was to become the new automobile design metaphor.
