At four in the afternoon on the 25th of June in 1950 the Talbot-Lago of Louis Rosier and Jean-Louis Rosier would come powering its way across the finish line to take the victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This would be a monumental moment in Le Mans history as it would be the first time (and only to date) in which a father and son combination would go on to take the overall victory in the classic enduro. The car that would carry them to victory and motor racing legend would be the Talbot-Lago T26GS.
The Talbot-Lago T26 models were exquisite creations outfitted with coach work provided by some of the world’s greatest coachbuilders. Never produced in large numbers, these T26 models are extremely rare and exclusive by today’s standards. In total there were about 30 examples of the T26 GS (Grand Sport) constructed with eight built on the short chassis of 2.65m. This was the same chassis that was used for the Grand Prix cars.
