Grand Sport Cabriolet
Coachwork: Franay
Chassis Num: 110121
Sold for $1,252,240 (€1,120,000) at 2017 RM Auctions.
One of the early postwar cars noted for its speed was the Talbot Lago T26 Grand Sport. It was built for either racing or luxury and benefited directly from Talbot's successful T26 Grand Prix car. As such it was expensive and rare, and coachbuilt examples are highly collectable.

Three Grand sport chassis were clothed by the Parisian coachbuilder Franay, two coupes and this cabriolet (chassis number 110121), which also features an interior by Hermes. It was shown at all the best concours in Europe and won several industry and design awards. Many stars, including Marlene Dietrich and Christian Dior, were linked to this car.
