The Delahaye 94 is a modern concept car designed for the now-defunt
but nevertheless historic French automotive manufacturer Delahaye,
a company founded back in 1894, who at their peak competed with the
likes of Bugatti, and their vehicles were purchased by Royalty and
VIPs on a regular basis.
The Delahaye 94 has been styled with the company's history in mind.
So while it features plenty of contemporary and futuristic design
flourishes, it also has a rather classical silhouette and layout.
The diamond-shaped gille is true to Delahaye, but in profile the body
has a fleeting similarity to the Jaguar F-Type.
The concept's name is taken from the original Delahaye Type 94 from
The interior of the Delahaye 94 concept is again influenced by vintage
vehicles, but with a modern twist. It's trimmed in a variety of materials
ranging from leather and wood, to aluminium and velvet. The wide center
console houses a modern twist-knob interface, the largest of which
is used to control the transmission. A discreet touch screen display
is mounted in the center of the dash between the two main dials.
The Delahaye 94 concept was developed by Polish designer Paul Breshke.
And while there's no word on the proposed drivetrain, something of
a similar displacement to the original car, 3.0 litres, with a forced-induction
system, would sit rather nicely.
