Billed as Delahaye’s last luxury car, the 235 featured a coach-built, post war sports car body on a modernized Type 135 MS chassis with a 3.5L motor based on the design that made the brand a world beater in pre-war Grand Prix racing.
LAS VEGAS, NEV. (November 1, 2022) – The 1951 Delahaye 235 Roadster from the Mullin Automotive Museum collection was the recipient of the Best of Show Award at the conclusion of the annual Las Vegas Concours d’Elegance at the Wynn Las Vegas on October 30, 2022.
The annual event welcomed 230 cars from 15 classes, and nearly 3,000 people throughout its three-day gathering of automotive excellence.
“We are honored to receive the Best of Show Award from the Las Vegas Concours d’Elegance,” said Mullin Automotive Museum Founder Peter Mullin. “Las Vegas has quickly become a standout event for automotive enthusiasts, and we’re thrilled to be recognized by some of the world’s most passionate collectors.”
The 1951 Delahaye 235 Roadster was exclusively a sports car that exuded the luxury attributes of postwar hand craftsmanship and technological innovations. The Delahaye was displayed by Jacques “Frenchy” Harguindeguy in 2007 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Peter Mullin purchased the vehicle in 2007, and it underwent a comprehensive restoration process.
