The featured Talbot-Lago T26 chassis 100109 was given a hemispherical cylinder head design engine, courtesy of Anthony Lago, that is capable of producing 170 horsepower. Drum brakes provided stopping power while a live rear- and independent front-suspension provided support. The engine was matted to a Wilson four-speed preselector gearbox.

Figoni created the design and manufactured it with Ovidio Falaschi. This exceptional piece of rolling art was sold to movie director George Sidney

The beautiful Talbot-Lago is efficient, beautiful, flamboyant, graceful, and gorgeous. It was truly different from any other vehicle on the American road at the time. When William Lyons, the creator of Jaguar, first saw a Figoni & Falaschi teardrop design, he remarked 'That car is positively indecent.' The profound effect the car had on Lyons is evident in his post-WWI designs.

This one-off creation had a frame-off restoration by RM Coachworks in 2003 and later debuted at the 2003 Pebble Beach Concours. Since that time, it has been continuing to win awards and recognition at major events and concours throughout America.


By Daniel Vaughan | Jan 2018
The 4.5-liter engine of the Talbot Lago T26 delivered 170 horsepower and the chassis was state of the art in the postwar period.

This 1947 Talbot Lago T26 Drophead Coupe by Figoni et Falaschi was first owned by George Sidney, the famous Hollywood director. Perhaps it's no accident that a couple generations of Hollywood characters, from Mighty Mouse to Roger Rabbit, drove extravagant cartoon cars with fat fenders.

Sidney was on a roll during his directing years, and this magnificent creation of Figoni and Tony Lago made a striking statement. From its flamboyant fenders through its artful chrome trim to the subtle decklid spine, Sidney's Talbot Lago drophead coupe expresses the style, flash and confidence of postwar Hollywood.

Talbot-Lagos have become a top-prized car at various auctions, fetching as musch as $3.685 million in 2005.
