Delage D8-120 S Pourtout Coupe 1938 Blue by Matrix
This unique coupe, drawn by Henri Paulin, appeared on Pourtout’s stand at the 1938 Paris Salon and was considered by the company a sister design to their Embericos Bentley. It’s a little less flamboyant, with a regular Delage grille at the front but is an extremely elegant machine. The shape of the model looks very good when compared with photos of the restored car and the steel blue metallic paint and red interior, with matching wheels, are authentic to the specification of the car when new. The etched window frames have a slightly dark chrome finish which works well on the model and a detail of the restored car, the modern rear lights beneath the bumper, have thankfully been omitted.

From the original creators of the Neo range, this resincast series offers a wide range of mostly road car subjects. Some are very familiar classics but we also see plenty of very rare and usual machines ranging from Maharajah's Rolls Royces to Citroen and Volvo limousines! Overall casting quality is excellent, paint finishes usually to a very high standard and plenty of fine etch used for small trim. Wire wheels on some subjects can be a little unconvincing but otherwise very consistent. Made in China.
