Emile Darl'Mat was a Peugeot dealer in Paris. His idea was to propose a light body sports car with the chassis and engine made by Peugeot. The car would be serviced by the Peugeot network and at the same time the sales price as reasonable. Paulin designed the aluminum body and Pourtout, a very well-known French coach builder, was responsible for production. The engine was tuned by Peugeot and mounted on a short chassis. Four models were available: a roadster, a convertible, a coupe and a race car which was almost identical to the roadster. The Darl'Mats raced at Le Mans in 1937 and 1938 when two of the 2-liter cars finished the race in fifth and eight places overall.
