From St. Tropez to Monte Carlo, the French Riviera has a grand automotive tradition in both concours and racing events.
And this stunning pre-war, long chassis Delahaye 135 MS Competition Cabriolet has participated in both.
What's more, it will be appearing for sale to collectors at RM Auction's Sporting Classics of Monaco auction, which takes place on May 1.
A very well documented example, it was restored to Pebble Beach standards and retains its gorgeous one-off Figoni et Falaschi coachwork and original engine.
Special features include a red leather interior custom upholstered by the craftsmen at Hermès, both in period and for its recent restoration.
The Delahaye 135 will auction with an estimate of €1.7m-2m.
