The Delage D12 is a hybrid street-legal sports car produced by the French automobile manufacturer Delage and launched in 2020 exclusively as a Coupé with a fixed roof.
Delage was a French luxury car and racecar company founded in 1905 by Louis Delâge in Paris, acquired by Delahaye in 1935 and ceased operation in 1953.
The seating layout is similar to that of a two-seat fighter jet. That is to say, in tandem with the ‘pilot in the front and his wingman behind. There are two variants, the GT and the Club. The GT has 1,100 horsepower, and the Club has 1,010 horsepower, but the Club is 200 pounds lighter.
A naturally aspirated V12 with hybrid assistance delivers the power. According to Delage, the car achieves 62mph in 2.4 seconds and is confident it can set a Nurburgring record.
The motor car in its ‘basic form’ costs only £2.05 million.
Delage is now offering two additional options, the Speedster and F1, each costing £170k; however, you can have both options for the bargain price of £260k.
The Speedster attaches a smaller windshield to the front of the car, replacing the closed canopy; the F1 option adds an even smaller wind deflector. Customers can ask for a protective halo and helmet, too.
In total, Delage will only build 30 D12s. If exclusivity is your thing, the D12 is the fighter jet for you.
