Sublime 1936 Talbot Lago T150C Cabriolet

When we are talking about regular cars of the 1920s and 1930s, we immediately picture robust, edgy vehicles that were as aerodynamic as an old school bus. However, 1936 brought with it a revolutionary change in car design, and one of its pioneers was the gorgeous Talbot Lago T150C Cabriolet.

This stunning example of automotive perfection was designed with performance and aerodinamicity in mind, boasting curvy shapes and wide angles exclusively.  The car was sketched out by an Italian named Giuseppe Figoni, who collaborated with Ovidio Falaschi in order to bring it into existence. This car was one of the most sought after European automobiles in its time, and it is not hard to understand why, since it not only looked amazing but also performed exquisitely as well.  Under the hood, there was an inline-6 engine that could dish out 140 horsepower, which was quite a lot back then as you can surely imagine. Moreover, due to its extraordinary aerodynamics, the 1936 Talbot Lago T150C Cabriolet could reach a top speed of 115 mph, which is why it took part in several racing events, including the LeMans endurance race in 1938, where it placed third.

Just 11 examples of this superb car were ever produced, including the one you can see in the pictures. This particular vehicle will be put under the hammer at the RM Auctions Art of the Automobile event on November 21, and we can already envision millions of dollars being offered for its ownership.
