    Delahaye V8

    a modern rendition of a Delahaye V8 coupe. This was an old French luxury brand.

    It's interesting, but I don't see much connection to Delahaye.

    I love the old Delahye cars, this doesn't have that flavor though.

    I wouldn't expect that. But I don't see the lineage, and I have been around a few Delahayes.
