1937 Talbot-Lago T150-C SS ‘Goutte d’Eau’ Coupé

Built by Figoni et Falaschi, this stunning Talbot-Lago ‘teardrop’ coupé was recently sold at auction for over 3 million euros.

“The Goutte d’Eau, or teardrop, is justly regarded as one of the most beautiful and enticing designs of all time. It is a shape that elevates form to the realm of art and a reference point for iconic beauty against which all other late-1930s automobiles are measured. Aficionados and amateurs alike are stopped in their tracks at concours when confronted with the serene perfection of its lines. Coupled with what the French call belle mécanique, nimble road manners, and superior acceleration for its time, courtesy of the T150-C SS chassis and drivetrain, it is a very exciting package that speaks directly to any serious automotive enthusiast.”
