The Delahaye 135 MS was launched in 1938 as a special high-end version (MS stands for Modifie Speciale) of the 135 from 1935. The 135 MS has a 125 horsepower, 3.5-liter, 6-cylinder engine and could reach a top speed of 100 mph. Many famous coachbuilders such as Saoutchik, CHapron, Letourneur et Marchand and Pourtout made beautiful bodywork for the 135 MS chassis.

This aerodynamic coupe by Carrosserie Pourtout was inspired by Georges Paulin's prewar designs. Paulin worked for Marcel Pourtout in his Carrosserie in Rueil-Malmaison in the suburbs of Paris, and had many special designs attributed to his name, including the 1938 Embiricos Bentley and the 1934 Peugeot Eclipse with a retractable steel cabriolet roof, a construction he patented.

This Delahaye 135 MS Coupe is probably one of his last designs since, when Paris was occupied in 1940, Paulin joined the British Secret Service to fight the Nazi regime, but tragically was arrested and executed.

This aerodynamic Delahaye 135 MS coupe by Claude Pourtout was built for the Paris Auto Salon in 1946. The Salon was the first motor show after the war and this Delahaye was the feature car on the Pourtout stand. It was inspired by the works of Georges Paulin who had worked with Claude Pourtout at his Carrosserie in Paris before the war and had designed many wonderful cars including the 1938 Embiricos Bentley and the 1934 Peugeot 'Eclipse' with a retractable steel cabriolet roof, a construction which he patented.
