Talbot-Lago

Talbot-Lago

Established 1935: Suresnes, France

The Anglo-French trio of Sunbeam-Talbot-Darracq dissolved between 1933 and 1935, with one Anthony Lago of Venice stepping forth with the desire to create a sporting marque of international renown. Within a few years, Lago's firm produced a complement of the fastest and most alluring automobiles available to driving enthusiasts. Often serving both road and race duties, Talbot-Lago cars were technically potent, while the best coachbuilders of Paris found the chassis a dream to clothe.
