    I'm not sure if this was ever built.

    Thanks for posting.

    I have a question about the Delahaye 165 Figoni and Falaschi that you have posted before: were there any dimensions and technichal data in the book were you got the picture from? The same applies for this car.

    These are for Delahaye 135.
    165 had a longer wheelbase and the body was longer and wider. I have the specs for Delahaye 165 Figoni et Falashi from a site on the net (don't remember, perhaps the same site) and these were completely wrong: when applied to the sideview the wheelbase did not correlate to the length.

    Thanks for posting. But I'm affraid these dimensions are incorrect. That's what I meant in my previous post.

    See the drawing attached. There's some perspective in this drawing, and considering the fact that the car is not a box but is quite curved at the rear, the car is in fact even longer. Thus with the wheelbase of 3800 mm there's no chance its length is 4877 mm as it is mentioned on that website.
