1936 Talbot Lago T150C Cabriolet marked a moment where design wasn’t just a focus on aesthetics, but aerodynamic performance. These new European automobiles were not only visually stunning, they sped through the air like feathers amongst bricks. The 1936 Talbot Lago T150C Cabriolet looked frighteningly fast. Body designed by Italian-born Giuseppe Figoni and produced by business partner Ovidio Falaschi. Powered by an inline-6 engine that produced about 140 horsepower, a competitive number back in the mid-1930s. It topped out at 115 mph on straightaways, and its aerodynamic appeal gave it an edge while accelerating out of turns. This vehicle will be auctioned off at the RM Auctions Art of the Automobile event on November 21st, and expected starting price is at least $3,000,000.
