1949 Delahaye

We came across this and wanted to share some pics for our readers. As we move into the spring and summer events we are gearing up here at MotorSports News Publications to bring you one of the best years we have ever had. Enjoy the pics and stay tuned for our updates in the next week or so.

The Delahaye Saoutchik Roadster – is this the world’s most beautiful car?

The most dramatic of all supercars is this 2-seat roadster which was owned by English movie star Diana Dors. Built for the post-war Concours circuit, Saoutchik was responsible for its extreme body which borrowed styling cues from other earlier desig

For nearly forty years the original engine and car were separated much to the blissful ignorance of everyone who could still appreciate its distinct design. Eventually, correct 175 parts were sourced and the owner had Fran Roxas refurbish the massive Delahaye. It made a welcome debut restoration at the 2006 Pebble Beach Concours where it graced the shoreline beside the best examples of the marque. Later, the original engine was sourced and it was offered at Sports & Classics of Monterey by RM Auctions with an estimate of $4,000,000-$6,000,000 USD.

While this car may not be your cup of tea We must say that this beauty defines an era of long gone artwork of automobile styling. As we progress into electric vehicle we might so some style coming back (maybe?).

We think this new EV would look good chopped and bagged. You decide.
