Product Description

  • 1937-1939 Talbot Lago T150 SS Memory Edition 1/18 Diecast Model Car by CMC
    While researching and developing the Talbot Lago Type T 150 C-SS model series, CMC wanted to place a special emphasis on one specific variation of the line, the M-179 “Memory Edition”. This variation is modeled after the vehicle which was featured in the Rosso Bianco Collection in Aschaffenburg and is dark-aubergine in color (but with headlights which are recessed into the bodywork and arranged behind a chromium-plated metal grid). While the visiting this collection, this automobile had inspired the late CMC Co-Founder Mr. Herbert Nickerl in such a way that the desire to create a similar Talbot in a 1:18th scale was an enduring dream of his. With this release, we are fulfilling that dream! 
  • A happy circumstance came true when we were given access to an absolutely original Talbot-Lago “Teardrop” and were able
  • to take its measurements. Our adrenaline was running high with the delightful anticipation and surging urge to replicate
  • a masterpiece of automobile engineering, but we were also conscious of the challenging nature of such a project and the
  • degree of commitment that it would require. After all, there is a general consensus that this legendary automobile car
  • belongs in a class that stands all by itself. Only about a quarter of these impressive vehicles are still known to exist today
  • they witnesses to a time gone by, when form was more important than it is today.With a body customized by the famous coachbuilder 
  • Fioni & Falaschi, the Talbot-Lago boasted an appearance that was virtually exorbitant.The car truly represented what we would call “a state of art” today.
  • Hand-assembled precision metal model, built from 1,488 single parts.
  • True-to-scale, authentic replication of the “Teardrop”-bodywork, customized by the renowned French coachbuilders Figoni & Falaschi.

  • Supporting rod keeps the engine-hood in opened position.
