This is a 1992 Talbo, built by a custom coach builder in Florida. Powered by a modern Ford 5.0 litre engine, the Talbo is a replica of a model built by the Talbot-Lago car company in 1938. The Talbot-Lago car company actually built many different kinds of cars between 1935 and 1940 but it was their 1938 model, called the Aerodynamica, that inspired the design of this modern Talbo. Only twelve Aerodynamicas were built and their limited numbers drive their prices into the stratosphere when they come up for auction.
A search for the rare times when an Aerodynamica has come up for sale shows that the price is anywhere from $3.5 to $4 million dollars. The famed American industrial designer Brooks Stevens was so enamored with the Talbot Lago that he bought one for himself when available to purchase. He placed that car in his museum in Mequon, Wisconsin and in the 1980’s, the makers of the Talbo were granted permission by Stevens to use his car as a template, making sure the details were correct and that the Talbo would be an exact exterior replica of the Aerodynamica with the underpinnings of a modern sports car.
The body of the Talbo is made from fiberglass composite using premium
high heat distortion resin. All exterior trim is stainless steel and the leather
covered seats make driving a pleasure. The instrument gauges are made
to emulate the original style and the wood trim is Honduras Mahogany.
True modern comfort and luxury in an exotic form, Talbo’s are indeed niche vehicles that were made in limited numbers.
