A Belgian casino owner ordered this Teardrop with several rare features like the sunroof and the chrome covered headlights. He received chassis 90112 and subsequently showed it at the 1938 Brussels and 1939 Deauville Concours d'Elegance. Hidden away during the War, the Talbot Lago did not resurface until the 1950s when it was acquired by a member of the Belgian royal family. It remained in the family for five decades and when acquired by the current owner, it was complete but in a partly disassembled state awaiting restoration.

The new, American owner sent his prized possession to RM Restorations where the car was carefully restored. It was in such condition that much of the wooden framework supporting the body could be used again. The extensive work was eventually completed in time for the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where it promptly received three awards. Chassis 90112 would go on to win 'best of show' at the 2010 Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance. The owner decided to part with the lovely 'Teardrop' Coupe and offered it at RM Auctions' 2011 Villa d'Este sale where it found a new custodian for just over EUR 3.1 million.
