  • 30's coupe 151kB, beautiful!!
  • 30's coupe 86kB, this car is an American replica of a Talbot Lago SS Goutte d'eau by Figoni & Falaschi. It's called Talbo (without a t). the real name of the firm is TLC (I don't now what it means: perhaps Talbot Lovers Corporation ?) and the name of the model is Talbo. It was created by Georges and Jacquie Balaschak in 1993 in Riviera Beach, Florida. The car has an american V8 (heresy!). In 1993 it costed $105,000. How to recognize a TLC Talbo from a true Talbot: look at the tires andwheels (fatter on the TLC) and at the half recessed circular tail-lights of theTLC. Info: Otakar Kopecky

  • Talbot Lago SS Goutte d'eau by Figoni &Falaschi. 138kB, "SS" stands for "Super Sport" and "Goutte d'eau" means "water drop".
  • 1938 T150ss coupe 163kB, Talbot Lago Grand Sport.I'm gonna tell you its story. This car was build in 1948 (chassis number: 110105) and bought by Andre Chambas. It had a 4.5l twin cam engine. The body wasmade by Contamin in aluminium, and the design was based on drawings and scalemodel made by Chambas himself. At the "24 Heures du Mans" in 1949 it was in 4thposition in the last lap but ran out of fuel (bad luck !). The car was drivenby Andre Chambas and Andre Morel. In 1950 (still in the 24 Hours of Le Mans) thecar finished 13th. In 1951, the coupe was rebodied as a 2-seater race roadster by Tunesi. It finished 17th of the 24h of LM. In 1952, two superchargers (Roots140 SEi) were added and the car finished 9th in Le Mans. The car did its last24 Hours of LM in 1953 but stopped after 2 h 10 mn (accident).
