Delage D8-120S at the Greenwich Concours

Delage D8-120S. So beautiful.

This gorgeous French sports car of the prewar era, a black 1938 Delage D8-120S Aerosport Coupe took home the top International honors of Best in Show and People’s Choice at the 2011 Greenwich Concours d’Elegance, held last month.  During the Depression, Delage was bought by Delahaye, and by 1953, it had ceased to be after a tumultuous time in the early Fifties, when less than 100 were made during three years.  More pictures after the jump.

Some gorgeous details on this car. Look at the exhausts--we don't see that these days.
Wide white walls and some excellent chrome work on the rims.
Looks even better from behind--that shape is truly art on wheels.
