I believe you have made a good ID. The coachwork is obviously custom. The streamlined bodywork from the engine compartment to the windshield line seems diagnostic.

The badge makes sense now, and works as the stylized Delahaye badge of that era.

I checked with another search and it seems the 1910 Delahaye Type 32 Roadsters all had some eccentric quirks.

Now let's see if we get some confirmation, or if we are shot down in flames.
