Talbot-Lago Cars
Sunbeam-Talbot-Darracq was an Anglo-French company which collapsed in 1935, and the British part of the venture was bought out by the Rootes brothers who launched 'Sunbeam-Talbot' as a new sporting version of contemporary Hillmans and Humbers. In France STD director Anthony Lago created the 'Talbot-Lago' brand out of the Talbot-Darracq models; these cars were badged 'Darracq' in Britain. Walter Brecchia was his engineer, and soon created a 2.7-litre ohv six engine, a 3.0-litre ohv six engine and a 3,996cc ohv engine. This engine was developed after the Second World War by Carlo Marchetti to 4,482cc for racing and then given to the T26. A 2,690cc 4-cylinder dohc engine was developed for the Talbot-Lago Baby sold from 1948-51. By 1957 a further new engine was needed and Talbot-Lago turned to BMW to supply a 2.5-litre V8 from the BMW 507. However in 1958 Henri Pigozzi from SIMCA approached Tony Lago and the takeover resulted in Simca-Talbot cars from 1959. Tony Lago died in 1960 and soon became clear that the Talbot plant had been purchased by SIMCA for very much less than the site was worth; SIMCA regarded the Talbot name as worthless and produced no more Talbots after 1959.
