The Delage D12 Has Record-Breaking Ambitions
Back in 2021, a Porsche 911 GT2 RS equipped with a Manthey performance kit became the fastest road-legal production sports car on the 13-mile Nürburgring-Nordschleife track. With a lap time of 6:43:30, the GT2 RS stole the title from the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series which did the same lap in 6:43:62 just a year before.
Many of you may have never heard about Delage lately, but for sure you will hear a lot about it soon. The company that built the D6 and the D6 in the 1930s is making a comeback, and it plans to do it in style. In an interview with Motor1 Laurent Tapie, French entrepreneur, and the new CEO of Delage, announced that the company plans to beat the street-legal record around Nurburgring with its future supercar, the D12.
