Talbot Lago T26 Stabilimente Farina Cabr by Matrix
The vast majority of Talbot Lago chassis were clothed by French coachbuilders but this unique roadster was commissioned from Stabilimente Farina by the Portuguese agent and unveiled at the 1951 Paris salon. Originally the car was white with colour coded wheels but it has been restored in black with chrome by the current American owner. When photographing the model, it looks very large and measuring key dimensions such as wheelbase, this works out correct for the larger T26 ‘Record’ but the Grand Sport was 40cm shorter! The proportions are good but if we calculate the measurements based on the GS chassis length the model works out to around 1:38! A shame as it’s beautifully finished.

From the original creators of the Neo range, this resincast series offers a wide range of mostly road car subjects. Some are very familiar classics but we also see plenty of very rare and usual machines ranging from Maharajah's Rolls Royces to Citroen and Volvo limousines! Overall casting quality is excellent, paint finishes usually to a very high standard and plenty of fine etch used for small trim. Wire wheels on some subjects can be a little unconvincing but otherwise very consistent. Made in China.
