Talbot Lago T150 Le Mans 1939 #8 1:18 by CMC
Alternative version CMCM145 Blue CMCM165 Red Silver CMCM166 Black and CMCM179 Aubergine
There are a number of physical changes between this race version of the Talbot Lago Teardrop coupe and the road cars which we have already seen from CMC. The car ran without rear spats to speed up wheel changes and the bonnet is also different with open vents on the sides and simple leather straps to hold it down. The bumpers are removed and at the front there are small additional lamps. These details all interrupt the flowing lines of the car rather, but are authentic for the Le Mans race. Beneath the skin there is the usual high level of mechanical detail with full engine, chassis and suspension but we do have a query on the colour. The model is smartly finished in a light metallic blue, but our references suggest that the race car was grey...

This range has become the benchmark by which we judge 1:18 high detail die-cast model, a type we have come to refer to as 'Premium die-casts'.
Opening panels reveal full engines, with chassis and suspension detail visible beneath and interiors have realistic material finishes. Paint finishes on bodywork excellent and where a race car livery is required, the decals are accurately placed. Made in China.
