“Most beautiful” car ever made sells for more than £10 million

A rare 1937 Talbot-Lago car has sold for a record breaking £10,250,000 at auction.

The Teardrop Coupe is the most expensive French car to go under the hammer.

It is also a record for the marque.

The bodywork was designed by Figoni et Falaschi and less than a score was produced more than 80 years ago.

It is one of only two Talbot-Lago T150-C-SS Teardrops with enclosed front fenders, a design dubbed “Modèle New York.”

It is the sole Teardrop that still has its original body.

The other Modèle New York was re-bodied to match its original Teardrop appearance.

The car is said by many to be one of the “most beautiful” ever to be made.
