A Classic of Automotive History: The Talbot Lago Coupe T150 C-SS Teardrop

The Talbot Lago Coupe T150 C-SS Teardrop is a masterpiece of automotive history. This fine and elegant generation of cars was built from 1937 to 1939 and is considered one of the most beautiful cars of the pre-war era. The vehicle was the result of a collaboration between the French manufacturer Talbot and the famous coachbuilder Figoni & Falaschi. Figoni & Falaschi, known for their artistically designed bodies, created a design that is still regarded as a timeless work of art. The "Teardrop" design of the car got its name from the droplet-shaped contours defined by the aerodynamically curved fenders and the tapering rearward body. This shaping not only gave the car an elegant appearance but also improved its aerodynamic properties.
