1924 Delage 2LCV Racer

  • Chassis Number: 3
The Delage 2LCV is arguably the first modern Grand Prix car due to its agile handling and powerful V12 engine, built by Charles Planchon. Louis Delage released the 2-liter 2LCV in 1923; it debuted at the French Grand Prix on July 2 of that year, impressing both Ettore Bugatti and Enzo Ferrari. Albert Lory redesigned the 2LCV chassis and engine for the 1924 Grand Prix season and, after much testing, four cars were finished in time to race. At the French Grand Prix at Lyon, these revised Delage 2LCVs finished second, third, and sixth behind the winning Alfa Romeo P2 of Giuseppe Campari.

This car, chassis number three, was built in 1924 and raced that year by Rene Thomas. It has remained in 1924 specification and has never been upgraded with the supercharger.

After the car's racing career came to a close, it disappeared for a number of years, eventually being found in South America. American Bob Sutherland purchased it in the late 1990s and returned it to Europe. While there, it was given a five-year restoration.
