1948 Talbot-Lago T26 Saoutchik Grand Sport Cabriolet
The T26 Grand Sport was developed during the war as a sporting chassis by Anthony Lago. The concept was outrageously exclusive and something for the very few—not only because of its price, which was stratospheric, or its limited practicality, which was irrelevant. It was a car that was chic, ritzy, aristocratic, and sharp as a knife, all at once. It was also very rare, even when new. Only 29 were built on the short-wheelbase chassis, of which 26 exist today, all of them with individually coachbuilt bodies.
