Delage 15-S-8 1500 GP 1927

For the 1926 Grand Prix season, the rules had changed and maximum engine capacity was 1.500cc. rather than the previous 2.000 cc. Delage decided to prepare three cars with a new eight cylinder in line engine derived from the V12 of the 2LCV. Two Rootes superchargers were mounted on the side and exhaust was on the right side. The cars showed interesting performances but required further development. For 1927, Delage prepared four updated 1500 GP. The eight cylinders engine was turned around to have the exhaust on the left. The twin supercharchers were replaced by a single one in front in line with the engine block. There was needle bearing or ball bearing for every moving part. The engine produced 150 hp at 7.500 rpm. The 1927 GP season was exceptional for the Delage 15-S-8 (1500 cc. – Supercharger -8 cylinders) or 1500 GP as it won the Championship and most of the races including some races where it took the three first places. The following ten years saw Delage 1500 GP driven by privateers; three private drivers were British specialists such as Malcolm Campbel, Richard “Dick” Seaman and Lord Howe. It is estimated that today there are still three Delage 1500 GP in running condition.
