 Founded in 1905 by Louis Delage in collaboration with Augustin Legros, a fellow engineer-graduate of an Arts et Métiers college, Automobiles Delage commenced production with a single-cylinder De Dion-engined runabout and within a few years was offering multi-cylinder designs. The publicity value of racing was recognised right from the start, a single-cylinder Delage winning the Coupe Des Voiturettes as early as 1908 and Louis himself taking the 1911 Coupe de l'Auto in a 3-litre four-cylinder.

 Victories at the Grand Prix du Mans and the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race were achieved prior to WWI, while production grew alongside these successes. The 'R4' model was built by Delage from 1911 to 1913 and while the earlier examples were equipped with a Ballot engine, later in the run a similar Ballot-Delage Type 4G3 engine was fitted in the 7th to 11th Series, of which this is an example. 

The current owner has just completed a full coachwork and chassis restoration, this Delage wears a very attractive and sporting two seater coachwork with a single rear ‘Dickie’ seat that has be carefully thought out.

 The paintwork is un-marked and finished in an attractive shade of blue with a contrasting gold coachline.

 The complete chassis has been finished in the traditional Delage blue, no inspection lamp is needed when checking underneath as the colour itself brightens everything and is a real delight to see.

 Starting and driving is simple with ample power to pull you up the steepest of hills, this Delage is a real treasure and enough to satisfy any enthusiast.
