Talbot-Lago Teardrop II poster print by W.Flemming.

Carefully produced with our giclée process to maximize color accuracy and resolution. At Simply Petrol, we use the highest-quality Hahnemühle fine art paper (315 gsm) with delicate texture and acid-free surface.

Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed to saturate the fibers of the watercolor paper, resulting in pure, rich color and remarkable detail.



Talbot-Lago Teardrop coupes are the epitome of automotive art deco and took over the world with fluid lines and aerodynamically enhanced speed. W.Fleming is sharing again their story with this beautiful poster artwork.

The rise of Talbot-Lago began with Antonio Lago who managed to buy the Suresnes factory, built by Darracq. He managed to get a reasonable stake and added his name next to the Talbot brand. The next step of Toni Lago was to hire Walter Brecchia as chief engineer. His first task was to upgrade the existing Talbot T120 to T150 with radically new hemisphere cylinder head for the 3-liter engine. Born and raised in an artistic background, Antonio Lago was familiar with vanity and generated a lot of attention by building 3 demo cars painted in white, blue and red – the French tricolor. Under the hood was the old T120 engine, since Brecchia needed time for his development.


When the new engine was finally done, it was produced in different versions after different chassis modifications. The 4.0-litre six-cylinder engine with three Zenith-Stromberg carburetors was capable of 160 or 190 hp, depending on the size of carburetors. The car was really fast and easily reached 200 kilometers per hour. One of them in almost stock condition finished 3rd in 1938 24 Hours of Le Mans. The year before, T150 was the fastest car in British Tourist Trophy, Tunisia and Marseille.

Talbot-Lago produced less than 30 Teardrop coupes. More than the half were bodied by Figoni and Falaschi. Marcel Pourtout, notable coachbuilder completed series of 4 chassis, known today as Pourtout Aerocoupes. They were designed by Georges Paulin, French dentist with bold design ideas heavily influenced by aerodynamic stream lines. He is also known for inventing the first folding hard top.

Paulin & Portout Aerocopues of Talbot-Lago were pretty close to Figoni and Falaschi design. They kept the Teardrop shape and put it in a more aerodynamic context in order to achieve better efficiency, hence speed.

Now you can own this artistic tribute to the finest of automotive art deco, as Talbot-Lago Teardrop poster created by W.Fleming and carefully issued by Simply Petrol.

Flemming is a digital artist with a traditional painting background. Long time Formula One fan, she has always been passionate about automobiles. After finishing her degree in communicative arts, she worked in advertisement; where she developed a taste for digital automotive art and eventually turned to illustration. One of her recent series is dedicated to the dawn of the automotive industry in the first half of the last century when aerodynamics started to dominate the minds of car designers and engineers in their eternal pursuit of the automotive dream, and a hunger for speed.
