Talbot

The Talbot company was built up from the English-French Sunbeam-Talbot-Darracq corporation. In 1934 Anthony Lago founded the Talbot company. He wanted to save the spoiled reputation of the Lago brand by sports-orientation of its products and racing activities.

The Talbot’s revival began in 1934 from the Type 150 model. It was based on an already-existing car platform with 8-cylinder straight engine. Lago revised it by adding an aluminum engine head with hemispherical combustion chambers, but kept the push road system of the upper valves. Later such a strategy was used by BMW and Chrysler.

In 1936 Talbot Type 150 with a 2960 cm3 engine was ranged according to the race technical regulations to a new class with upper 4L limit. The enhancement of the engine capacity to 3900 cm3 provided the car with excellent properties, while Lago Special model approved itself as a perfect Gran Turismo car. It was a good blend of race car chassis and elegant aerodynamic coupe body designed by Figoni et Falaschi. The 1930s were the golden era for the Talbot company.

In the late 1960-s the Talbot trade mark was liquidated.
