Emile Delahaye built his first car in Tours in 1895.  He sold his business in the early 1900’s and died in 1905.  The company bearing his name later produced some of the most stylish cars ever built, with coachwork constructed by many of the leading specialists.  In 1935, Delahaye acquired Delage, but in 1954 the company merged with Hotchkiss and the name disappeared forever.
