Chassis: 90115
Chassis 90115 was the second of the short-chassis T150C clothed by Figoni & Falaschi with a Cabriolet body. It was commissioned by French enthusiast M. Cattino. After the War, it was acquired by Louis Rosier, who had it fitted with a Grand Prix style body. He raced the car during the 1947 season with a victory in the Grand Prix d'Albi as the best result. In 1948, it was sold to Charles Huc, who continued to race the car. In 1950, it changed hands again, this time passing to Lino Fayen and then on to a mister Leroy. He also owned the sister car, chassis 90111, and for reasons unknown, he switched chassis tags between the two cars.

As 90111, the ex-Rosier racing car was sold before the end of the decade and before joining the stable of Jean Serre, it was owned by another noted French collector, Pierre Bardinon. Serre would own the car for over four decades. In 2009 the reversal of the chassis tags was finally discovered, and the Talbot Lago was offered as 90115 in the RM Auctions Monterey sale. Still wearing its competition bodywork, it sadly failed to sell after a high bid of $1.2 million. More recently, the current owner decided to return the Talbot Lago to its original Figoni & Falaschi configuration. In this guise, it was first shown at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
