Patrick is the great-grandson of the car manufacturer Louis Delage.
He held responsible positions in the French pharmaceutical industry. Passionate about cars from a young age, a collector, and heavily involved in the vintage car movement, he has also been running the Auto Classique Touraine workshops for about twenty years, restoring the most beautiful pre-war cars, including Bugatti, Delage, Delahaye, Hispano-Suiza, Talbot, etc.
He also harbors a passion for all the art surrounding the Art Deco period, including architecture, furniture, painting, fashion, and car body design.
Patrick spends his leisure time driving rare cars along the beautiful roads of France, sharing with friends the discovery of landscapes, architecture, and fine dining.
He is the embodiment of French savoir-vivre, and the ‘guardian of the temple’ of the Delage brand and its history.
