Art Deco Cars That Are Still Beautiful Today

1949 Delahaye 175 Saoutchik Roadster

 The most dramatic of all supercars is this 2-seat roadster which was owned by English movie star Diana Dors. Built for the post-war concours circuit, Saoutchik was responsible for its extreme body which borrowed styling cues from other earlier designs.

 

Using the French curves of the thirties with more modern baroque ornamentation, Saoutchik conveys a sense of drama and movement with this design. With completely enclosed wheels, the car’s best angle is its profile as the front has a confusing mix of elements that look like they came from different sources. At the time, the aggressive use of chrome was revolutionary and an emerging trend that the American manufacturers would go on to master.

Much of this Delahaye’s beauty is also shown in details such as chrome accents that highlight the curves and feature embedded turn signals or the small strips which flank the side and add a sense of speed while hiding the door handles . At the front is a curious nose which was inspired by the Figoni et Falaschi-designed Narval produced just a year earlier. Inside, a two-tone interior is relentlessly busy and features a medley of designs that work together in their excess. Rows of knobs are everywhere and the see-through steering wheel made of lucite is unique.
