The Delahaye 135 is a luxury car manufactured by French automaker Delahaye. Designed by engineer Jean François, it was produced from 1935 until 1954 in many different body styles. A sporting tourer, it was also popular for racing.
An even sportier version, the 135MS, soon followed; 120–145 hp were available, with competition versions offering over 160 hp.
The 135MS was the version most commonly seen in competition, and continued to be available until 1954, when new owners Hotchkiss finally called a halt. The MS had the 2.95 m wheelbase, but competition models sat on a shortened 2.70 m chassis.
The Type 235, a rebodied 135MS with ponton-style design by Philippe Charbonneaux, appeared in 1951.
