Talbot was a strong competitor to Delahaye on the road and on the race track. The last victory was at Le Mans in 1948. Anthony Lago (his director and engineer) tried to export the Lago America with a BMW engine to the United States. He later declared bankruptcy.
Our Talbot has a body with the pontoon lines typical of this era. The engine is a prototype 2.7 liter, possibly engineered for a new race car which was never built. Hemi chambers, six cylinders, super-squared.
