'30s elegance returns to Lake Como with the classic Talbot-Lago

A 1938 Talbot-Lago T150C-SS will turn heads at RM Auctions' classic car sale in May

RM Auctions' classic car auction at Villa d'Este on Lake Como is expected to be a real belter, with around 30 world-class cars on offer.

In addition to a Ford GT40 Roadster, a 1938 Talbot-Lago T150C-SS Figoni et Falaschi Teardrop Coupe is sure to excite investors on May 21.

Chassis 90112 is one of only 11 examples with second-series "New York" Figoni coachwork and is built on the sophisticated short-wheelbase Talbot chassis with several unique features.

Widely regarded as one of the prettiest and most desirable motor cars ever conceived, it has been restored to show quality and was an award winner at Pebble Beach in 2009 and Meadow Brook in 2010.

The 1938 Talbot-Lago is one of many classic cars coming to Lake Como

The vehicle bears a strong resemblance to what is thought to be the world's most valuable car, the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, which sold for an undisclosed sum close to $30m in 2010.
