The 1923 Delage DHV12 is mighty yet elegant

As Delage showcased its insane 1,115PS (832 kW) prototype V12 hypercar at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard, we thought it prudent to educate ourselves about the French marque’s V12 credentials. And what better way to do so than taking a nose around the exquisitely presented, largely original Delage DHV12 from 1923. A World Speed Record holder that unquestionably inspired the engineers who developed its modern-day two-seater descendant, itself sporting a 7.6-litre naturally-aspirated V12 hybrid engine.
