Typically being built between 1925 and the early 1940's, Art Deco inspired cars have wonderful design features including technology and aerodynamic influences, patterning and the use of geometric form. The materials used were often opulent and lavish such as lacquer, inlaid wood, mother of pearl and exotic skins such as shark, zebra and ostrich. The coachbuilders creating these vehicles included Figoni & Falaschi, Brandone, Gangloff, Pourtout and Corsica. Classic names from a truly wonderful era of motoring.
Specific to cars, the "Streamline Moderne" Art Deco movement ran parallel to mainstream Art Deco and focused on the aerodynamic styling of a vehicle, featuring sweeping lines, symmetry, V-shapes, patterning and chrome grills.
Having restored Art Deco cars such as the beautiful Bugatti Atalante pictured here and a Delage D8 120 Aerosport: whose restoration was deemed so good it was the focus in a Classic Cars magazine article in 2007.
