Meet Our Concours Field: A Talbot-Lago T150C SS Raced by a Duke and Confiscated During WWII

Even though this one-of-14 Talbot-Lago T150C SS was commissioned by French Duke Philippe de Massa, that is only the start of this car’s interesting history.

Duke Philippe would end up racing the T150C in the 1939 24 Hours of Le Mans alongside French driver Norbert Jean Mahé, though the team would drop out of the race on its 88th lap. Not long after, the car was confiscated by the Germans in World War II, where it remained in East Germany until the fall of the Berlin Wall.

More recently, this T150C is said to have last been restored in 2007.

Although this Talbot-Lago T150C SS is accompanied by a unique history, is it enough to garner a win in the Concours d’Cancelation Presented by Hagerty?
