Clothed by Chapron with a rakish Cabriolet body, this Delage D8 S was sold new to Great Britain. Here it received an uprated intake manifold complete with four SU carburettors, effectively upgrading it to 'SS' specification. In this guise, the lovely eight cylinder engine produced around 145 bhp. While still in England, it was photographed for and featured in a 'Profile Publications' booklet. It has since been sold to the United States and today is part of the JWR Automotive Museum. It is seen here during the 2005 and 2007 editions of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
