1930's Supercars

Vintage Everyday posted a set of photos featuring what it called the "Top 10 Most Beautiful Cars of the 1930s."  I cannot disagree with most of their choices, including the 1935 Delahaye above.  I've seen one of these cars up close, and it is a rolling work of art.  I am a little surprised, however, that the Cord 810/812 did not make the list.
