1937 Peugeot 402 Darl'Mat Pourtout

This George Paulin design is Peugeot's all time most elegant two-seat roadster. Powered by a 1,991 cc overhead cam inline four-cylinder engine which produces 73-horsepower.

A total of 104 Peugeot 402 Darl'mat Special Sport Roadsters were crafted from 402 chassis. They were upgraded at Darl'mat's shop with Cotal four-speed electro-mechanical gearboxes, before being shipped to pourtout and fitted with the Paulin-designed bodies, formed from pieces of sheet aluminum hand-shaped and then nailed to wooden structures of ash framing that were then attached to the chassis.

Three Darl'mats finished in the top 10 overall at the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1937. Approximately 30 still survive today.
