Delahaye 135 CS

 Our Delahaye is a very accurate recreation of one of only 16 factory produced cars in the 1930s.  The 135 CS was a very successful racing car during the late 1930s, winning the Monte Carlo rally in 1937 and 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1938.

 Our car was painstakingly rebuilt over a period of 8 years by my father and myself, using all original Delahaye parts.  The car is actively raced all over the UK and used on a regular basis, when the weather permits and was used in the filming of The Gentlemans Wager 2 staring Jude Law.  The engine is a Delahaye 135 MS straight 6 fitted with Solex  side draft 42 mm carbs which produces over 200 ft lb of torque at 1500 revs!
