This type of car cannot be judged against general standards. This Talbot Lago is an automotive sculpture, a work of art. Function follows form and not the other way round.

The flamboyant styling is by Jacques Saoutchik, a cabinet maker who fled from the Ukraine and set up his own coachbuilding company in Paris in 1906. His only aim was to make it to the top in the motorcar industry, and this he finally achieved in the 1920s.

The exaggerated, voluptuous contours and the excessive use of chrome were typical of Saoutchik’s designs. Note the bulging wheel casings, the subtle fins on the mudguards and the numerous chrome trims. Technically, it was also one of the fastest cars of its time: the 190 hp Talbot Lago could reach a top speed of 200 km/h.

It was reminiscent of the flamboyance of the 1930s, but after the war this was however no longer appropriate. The world was focusing on reconstruction and such extravagant cars looked out of place. Only 36 Grand Sports were built.

Antonio Lago, the Italian major and trained engineer who bought out the declining French marque Talbot in 1935, misjudged the post-war opportunities. The marque did enjoy some racing success, but things soon went downhill. Talbot Lago was taken over by Simca in 1959. Saoutchik had already ceased to operate a few years earlier.

Dit soort auto’s kan niet meer afgezet worden tegen algemeen geldende maatstaven. Deze Talbot Lago is een automobiele sculptuur. Pure kunst. Functie volgt hier vorm en niet andersom.

De extravagante vormgeving is afkomstig van Jacques Saoutchik, een gevluchte Oekraïense meubelmaker die in 1906 bij Parijs zijn eigen carrosseriebedrijf opricht. Zijn doel is door te dringen tot de top van de automobielindustrie, wat hem in de jaren twintig uiteindelijk lukt.

De overdreven, bijna wulpse vormen en het overmatig gebruik van chroom zijn kenmerkend voor Saoutchiks ontwerpen. Kijk naar de extreme bolling van de wielkasten, de subtiele vinnetjes op de spatborden en de vele chromen accenten.

Overvloedige vormgeving past niet meer in de direct naoorlogse periode. De Italiaanse ingenieur en majoor b.d. Antonio Lago, die in 1935 het noodlijdende Franse merk Talbot opkocht, heeft de kansen verkeerd ingeschat. Talbot Lago wordt in 1959 overgenomen door Simca. Enige jaren daarvoor heeft Saoutchik de activiteiten al beëindigd.
