Chassis: 90117
Chassis 90117 was commissioned by Duke Philippe de Massa as a pure racing car. It features additional cooling vents in the bonnet and an external fuel filler. Sporting additional driving lights, it was raced in the 1939 24 Hours of Le Mans by Duke de Massa and Norbert Jean Mahé. A broken valve spring ended the Teardrop's race after just 88 laps. Confiscated by the Germans during the War, the ex-Le Mans Talbot Lago remained in Eastern Germany until the fall of Berlin Wall. Through various owners it ended in the United States where it was completely restored. In 2006 it sold at the Gooding & Co. Palm Beach International auction for $3.55 million. Its new owner brought it to the 2007 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where it is pictured. (Source: From Passion to Perfection, by Richard Adatto)
