Delage wins at Concours d'Elegance

A 1937 Delage was named Best In Show at the annual Keeneland Concours d'Elegance on July 20.

The Mari Hulman George award for Best of Show went to the 1937 Delage D8 120 SS Aerodynamic Coupe presented by The Patterson Collection of Louisville. The French car also was named top car in its class, Coach-built Classics. The Best of Show Award is presented by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Keeneland Concours in honor of Mari Hulman George.

This one-off short chassis coupe, with a body by Letourneur et Marchand, was originally ordered for a European prince and is the only known short chassis D8 120.

The Iacocca Award, in honor of Lee Iacocca, considered one of the fathers of the Ford Mustang, was given to Mike Scanlon, a Lexington business leader and car collector.

This year's Concours also featured the Ford Mustang, in celebration of the 50 years of Mustang in 2014. Hundreds of Mustangs flocked to the grounds, and several were honored, including the 1967 Shelby American GT500 Convertible that won the Junior Judges Award and the 1965 Mustang Convertible that won the People's Choice Award. The Children's Choice Award, chosen by children representing Kentucky Children's Hospital, went to a 1936 Auburn 852 Boattail Speedster.
