This beautiful 1937 Talbot-Lago at $13.4-M is now the most expensive French car ever sold at an auction“–Paul Ebeling

On 4 March 2022, the Figoni et Falaschi-bodied 1937 Talbot-Lago T150-C-SS Teardrop Coupe became the most expensive French car in existence. The coveted vintage vehicle was expected to exceed $10-M last month by the car world. Instead, it was sold for a record-breaking $13.425-M in Florida during the Amelia Island Auction by Gooding & Company.

In the realm of motorcars, the Teardrop is touted as “one of the most enduringly beautiful automobiles of all time”. Only 1 of 2 cars sport an impeccable all-alloy Modèle New York coachwork. The elegant Talbot-Lago is the brainchild of 3 Italian visionaries during the late 1930s, who redefined the Parisian automotive scene: Anthony Lago, Joseph Figoni and Luigi Chinetti.

This 85 anni car, chassis #90107 is a mechanic marvel, exceptional elegance and real personality car, a true masterpiece of industrial design with the French school of streamlined styling.

California-based Gooding & Company realized over $69-M in a day at that sale where it marked a milestone as its most successful and profitable Amelia Island Auction to date in 13 yrs of history. The firm achieved a 94% sales rate from 93 out of 99 lots sold.

Have a happy, prosperous week, Keep the Faith!
