Meet the classic 1949 Delahaye 175 S Saoutchik roadster built by Saoutchik for Concours circuit. The iconic 2-seat supercar was a sight to behold when it was first produced. Later it came under the possession of the English movie star Diana Dors.
What’s unique about the Delahaye was its contemporary beautification. You can see its wheels are almost hidden and its front has puzzling elements, which are completely contrary to our modern cars. The chrome was the name of the game during the time of its production, so it does feature this element at most places.
For almost four decades, the 1949 Delahaye 175 S Saoutchik roadster remained buried in a garage. In 2006, its owner made some efforts to source its main parts to rebuild it. Afterward, the car got its original engine and was presented for auction at Sports & Classics of Monterey with an approximated price of $4,000,000-$6,000,000 USD.
