On the 10th of April Louis Delage announced bankruptcy of his company. In July the Delage Company was bought by Walter Watney, the owner of the principle dealership of used Delage cars Autex in Paris. The main factory in Courbevoie was sold to a machine tool company, and in July the rights to manufacture cars under the Delage name was sold to Delahaye. A new company Société Nouvelle des Automobiles Delage was founded and Louis Delage was appointed as its president. Working in cooperation, the technical teams of Delage and Delahaye within a few weeks prepared the Delage range for 1936 incorporating a maximum of Delahaye mechanical elements.
Despite the rush the new range consists of no less than six models. The new 4-cylinder DI-12 replaces the D-4 as the base model. It takes the engine and various mechanical elements from the Delahaye 134. It is the only Delage for 1936 to retain mechanically controlled brakes. All the others have hydraulically controlled brakes. Three body styles are available in the DI-12 catalog: a 2-door saloon (coach), a 4-door saloon and a 6-window saloon (familiale) sedan. On top of these three models prepared by Autobineau there is a cabriolet bodied by Labourdette.
Along with Delahaye engines the new model range employs power units derived from a six-cylinder ohv developed by Delahaye. The sporting aspect of Delage is maintained with a Coupé version of the D6 75 built for Le Mans in 1935. The 6 cylinders of the D6-65 will be the only Delage engine retained by Delahaye after the agreements with W. Watney in the summer of 1935.
