Is there any other automobile quite as fantastical as the Talbot Lago Teardrop Coupé? We think not. The art deco automobiles of the 1930’s are known for their beauty but the Talbot Lago is something extra special. This rolling, voluptuous sculpture of elegant shape and exquisite lines is the most covetable design by the famous French coachbuilder Figoni et Falaschi. Nicknamed the “Goutte d’Eau” or teardrop, it was one of few automobiles that transformed automobile style and won many races. Devoid of any straight lines, the sensual curves broadcasted speed even when standing still.

While the Talbot excelled in motorsports, this particular model with starting number 8 pays tribute to one Teardrop Coupé that met an unlucky ending. The car was piloted by French racing drivers Duke Philippe de Massa and Norbert Jean Mahé in the 24 hour of Le Mans in 1939. A disastrous spin on the oily track sent the drivers and car flying in the opposite direction, and the car was unfortunately disqualified.

This model has been meticulously reproduced for an authentic reproduction. Any auto enthusiast with a passion for excellence, craftsmanship, and beauty will surely fall in love with this is CMC Talbot Lago T150C Teardrop Coupé.
