Share On

This Grand Sport Roadster is one of the most striking and perfectly proportioned Figoni & Falaschi designs ever built on a Delahaye 135 MS chassis. This car was commissioned in 1939 by a Monsieur Jeantet in Paris. The car was delivered to Mr. Jeantet in March of 1939. It was displayed at several exuberant features and is finished in a vibrant Andalouse red. After the war, the car was sold to collector Peter Agg, who campaigned it in numerous international rallies. The events included the Monte Carlo Ralley in 1983, and in Morocco, Avid de Grande Marque in France, and has been to Czechoslovakia, Italy, Austria and Essen in Germany. British collector Hugh Taylor later undertook a frame-off restoration with the help of expert Jim Stokes. Taylor owned the car until March 2007 before selling it at Coys Auction to the late John O'Quinn. A restoration soon followed. The car was sold at RM Auctions, Villa d'Este, in May 2011, to the current owners. In order to compete at the highest levels of Concours d'Elegance, the new owners commissioned Pual Russell and Company to restore the car cosmetically and mechanically in 2014.

Figoni & Falaschi - bodied Delahayes are considered to be some of the finest prewar sports cars exhibiting an Art Deco flair.
