Description

This Talbot Lago Coupe Type 150C (1937) Diecast Model Car is Silver and Red and features working steering suspension wheels and also opening bonnet with engine boot doors. It is made by CMC and is 1:18 scale (approx. 24cm / 9.4in long). When Talbot presented the Coupe for the first time during the Paris Motor Show in 1937 - the visitors were impressed immediately.This very quickly gave rise to the terms "goutte d'eau" (drop of water) and "teardrop coupe" - which were never used officially - but which provided the suitable words for the extraordinary shape. Everything about this fascinating vehicle and every detail attest to a deep love of design and matching accessories. Every line and every rail supports the effect without appearing obtrusive. This car is a harmonious unit - from the narrow front fender to the chromium-plated exhaust tail piece. In addition - there is the luxuriously equipped interior with artistic workmanship of noble wood and elegant leather.A silky-smooth running six-cylinder in-line engine works under the bonnet of the Coupe at either 140 or 160 hp - depending on the model. Powerful torque guarantees energetic drive and good acceleration values.Just 16 of these cars - with each individual vehicle differing in either a hardly perceptible or a greater - conspicuous detail - were built between 1937 and 1939.Only about a quarter of these impressive vehicles are still known today - witnesses to a bygone era - when form was still a priority.
