Delahaye 235 Coupe by Saoutchik (1952) – We’ve discussed it in the previous article that the concept of luxury cars developed rapidly around the year 1900. Saoutchik, who lives in Paris, finally joined in making the design of his luxury car in 1952, namely Delahaye 235 Coupe. This luxury and a classic car has a very cool design and looks very modern for a car made in 1952.
On the front, for example, Delahaye 235 Coupe has a very distinctive bonnet and has a fairly long snout because it contains a fairly large engine. Small detail details are very important at the front. Like the headlights that look modern and very precise details on the hood.
Viewed from the front, Delahaye 235 Coupe looks very attractive with an additional logo that looks squeezed but still impressive. The headlights also consist of four light bulbs that seem to function as city lights and far lights.
Turning on the rear of the car, Delahaye 235 Coupe has many precision arches that are very beautiful. has four small lights and a double exhaust looks very right. Delahaye 235 Coupe also has luggage to carry items when traveling with family.
Delahaye 235 Coupe also provides details on each logo on the body, including the front near the hood, then there is also on the back attached to the hood of the luggage and there is also the right side close to the rearview mirror and finally, there is a logo on them in their machine.
For the inside, Delahaye 235 Coupe as a luxury car does not follow the design of its predecessors who only provided 2 seats. Delahaye 235 Coupe has 4 seats with seats covered in brown leather that gives a classic impression. Then on the dashboard is also very minimalist, looks only the steering wheel that is rather prominent / On the other hand, the placement of the panel on the dashboard is also very neat and makes it easy for the driver to see indicators during the trip.
Engine parts are also important. Bearing a refined version of the famous 135 chassis and engine, now increased to 160 bhp, and a dramatic new grille courtesy of Philippe Charbonneaux. It proved too little too late, and just 84 examples of this chassis were produced before Delahaye production came to an end in 1954.
