Coupe
Chassis #: 302
High bid of $260,000 at 2011 Gooding and Company - The Amelia Island Auction. (did not sell)
It is believed that around 22 examples of the Talbot-Lago Grand Sport were built - plus an additional eight purpose-built T26 competition cars. In modern times, only 11 automobiles are known and accounted for - none of the competition cars are believed to have survived.

This Grand Sport is equipped with nearly every competition feature available for road-going Grand Sports. Other features include the high-performance triple-carburetor arrangement, an in-trunk gas filler, lightweight bumperettes with integrated driving lights, a side-exit exhaust with factory cut-out and special air cleaners.

This car was delivered to its first owner, M. Regy, on July 4th of 1955. The car was finished in red with a beige leather interior. It was equipped with a heater, Dunlop tires and Borgo sport pistons. In the early 1980s, the car was treated to a restoration.

The current owner of this car has successfully participated in five Colorado Grand and two Copperstate 1000 rallies.

In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Amelia Island, Florida where it was estimated to sell for $325,000-$400,000. Bidding reached $260,000 but failed to satisfy the vehicle's reserve. It would leave the auction unsold.
