1936 Delahaye. "Delahaye Automobile Manufacturing Company was started by Emile Delahaye in 1894, in Tours, France. His first cars were belt-driven, with single- or twin-cylinder engines. In 1900, Delahaye left the company. The company lasted until 1954."
The V12 Delahaye was a fascinating thing...
Like the DAF Daffodil. it had the same gearing forward as reverse, in the case of the Delahaye, thanks to a Cotal transmission.
If you wanted to drive a V12 backwards, you had the same gearing and mechanical top speed as forwards. -Madness!
