The D8 23CV was a great success with more than 2,000 cars sold between the fall of 1929 and the spring of 1933; a very satisfactory result for such a sumptuous model sold at such a high price. Despite that the company is in financial trouble due to the costly introduction of the D6-11 last year. Revealed at the Paris Salon in October 1932, this model did not come into production until spring of this year.
The D8-15 ia the successor of the D6 14 and 17 CV. All the new Delage cars have independent front suspension and over-head valve engines.
In October at the Paris Motor show a new 4-cylinder D4 was launched in the hope of increasing sales figures. In the 8CV tax class it will have to compete against Citroen Rosalie, Peugeot 301 and Renault Monaquatre.
