Talbot-Lago arose from the ashes of the Sunbeam-Talbot-Darracq collapse in 1935. Tony Lago, former general manager of the company, took over the Talbot factory and started building cars that bore his own name. Together with engineer Walter Brecchia, they began work on the first Talbot-Lago and were driven by the desire to create the world's greatest sports car.
The T23 was introduced at the 1937 Paris Motor Show. It featured transverse leaf-sprung independent suspension, race-bred 4-liter inline six-cylinder and for extra 4.200 Fr also the Wilson pre-selector gearbox, which Lago had assisted in the development in England.
During its time, Talbot-Lago created some of the world’s most memorable early sports and performance cars. Those cars runs every bit as well as they looks. Its race car DNA makes it a brilliant performer on the open road and Figoni et Falaschi in-house build bodies an icon of style. Alongside the likes of Delage, Delahaye, and Bugatti, Talbot Lagos represent the very best of French coachbuilt motor cars.
Running sweetly, driving nicely and ready to use. Please note, that we can provide a virtual inspection and help to deliver the car worldwide.
