Talbot is one of the oldest French marques having been founded by Messrs, Darracq, Serpollet, and Clement in 1893. It merged in 1922 with sunbeam Wolverhampton to form Sunbeam Talbot Darracq Motors, Ltd. When the company was acquired by Major Anthony Lago in 1935, a new era of innovation commenced. Lago, a gifted engineer (having worked for the British Society of Aircraft Engineers, the Wilson Gearbox Company, and Pratt & Whitney) further developed the existing Talbot Darracq 4-litre engine. With that, a new sports car was created which quickly gained considerable racing success due to its excellent reliability. He also set about making his cars attractive to prestigious clientele interested in touring automobiles. He fitted the car with a modern Wilson pre-selector gearbox and in cooperation with some of the world's leading coachbuilders, his Talbot Lago automobiles became some of the most sought-after and exciting designs of the late-1930s.

This Talbot-Darracq T23 four-place Drop Head Coupe wears coachwork by the famed French coachbuilder Fogoni & Falaschi. It has a number of unique features including a folding windscreen, three-position Cabriolet top, tear-drop fenders, and rear-hinged doors. It is a four-litre car that has 115 horsepower and an advanced Wilson pre-selector gearbox. The single overhead cam engine has twin Zenith-Stromberg carburetors. There are 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes, an independent front suspension and a live rear axle with semi-elliptical leaf springs.

The original owner of this car was Mrs. Britta Appelgren. It was sold to another Swedish owner in 1946, who would retain the car until 1985. It was sold to another Swiss collector, who, during the 1990s, gave it a complete restoration in France and subsequent mechanical improvements were carried out under the guidance of the leading Talbot authority in England.

This car still wears its original factory colors. It is one of only two such examples constructed and features coachwork by Figoni et Falaschi. It was produced under the auspices of Anthony Lago and was among the most fashionable French automobiles of the late 1930s.
