IXO; 1937 Peugeot 402 Darl'Mat Roadster

The 24 Hours of le Mans
 

The first cars were built at Darl'mat's workshops in Paris; however, during the 1930s the special bodied Peugeot-based coupés and cabriolets became increasingly integrated into the Peugeot range. During the second half of the decade, starting in 1936, Darl'mat's Peugeot-based coupes and cabriolets were built at the Peugeot plant in Sochaux.

The best remembered of the Darl'mats is a sports car based on the Peugeot 302: the engine was taken from the 402. Several Peugeot-Darl'mat 402 "spécial sport" models raced at Le Mans with success in 1937 and 1938. The cars were built in very limited numbers and three models - a roadster, a coupe, and a drop-head coupe - were offered.

This diecast model is by IXO and was sourced from a private collection in February 2020
