Beautiful Photos of 1939 Talbot-Lago T150 CSS

Talbot-Lago was a company formed by the collapse of Sunbeam-Talbot-Darracq in 1935. Anthony Lago, founder of the company, set-out to produce a line of exclusive and expensive sports cars. The cars initially used six-cylinder engines, but later models featured eight-cylinder engines, and the occasional cheaper engines to help increase sales.

In 1936 the T150-C entered the scene. Lago was able to pursue the famous driver Rene Dreyfus to leave the Ferrari organization and race for the Talbot-Lago driving team at the French Grand Prix at Montlhery.

The Talbots featured metallic paints and dual-tone finishes. This was the influence of Figoni. Chrome was decorated along the edgework of many of his vehicles.

There were fourteen Talbot-Lago T150 CSS Series created by Figoni between 1937 and 1939. Many still exist today. This a true testament to the beauty and craftsmanship of these vehicles.

In 1959 the company was taken over by Simca. Here below is a set of beautiful photos of 1939 Talbot-Lago T150 CSS.
