The story of Talbot-Lago T150C SS proves one more time that not all cars are created equal. It is a story about the beautiful blend of automotive engineering at its finest and coachbuilding at its best. This is the message of W. Fleming's Talbot-Lago T150C SS art print.

Back in the day the Teardrop, also famous as the ‘Goutte d’Eau’ is one of the very few cars that redefine the automotive style and win top-level racing events. The vehicle successfully combines the racing function and the elegant form so it naturally becomes a trendsetter. The Teardrop influences many other French manufacturers to consider more streamlined design.

1939 Talbot-Lago T150C-SS Pourtout Coupe

This Talbot-Lago T150C SS art print is a stylish journey back in time

T150C is the lightweight version of the standard Talbot-Lago chassis. The ‘C’ letter stands for Course or Competition. In 1937 the car is victorious in Tunisia, Montlhery and even British Tourist Trophy. Later that year the French release a road-going version of this chassis and label it as SS, after the American term Super Sport. It has an extremely short wheelbase of just 2.65 m. There is also a longer version of 2.95 m for more luxurious body styles.

Toni Lago signs a contract with Figoni and Falaschi for exclusive partnership. The result is outstanding. Later, Marcel Pourtout creates his own Talbot-Lago T150C SS interpretation within ‘Goutte d’Eau’ or "Teardrop" aerocoupes. In 1938, one of the stock showroom vehicles finishes third at 24 Hours of Le Mans. Talbot-Lago enters the next year competition with a well-prepared race car with driver Luigi Chinetti. Unfortunately, it retires after really promising 88 laps.

W.Fleming creates this Talbot-Lago T150C SS art print as an artistic tribute to a finest example of the automotive art deco era. You can order it now at Simply Petrol marketplace.
