1938 Talbot-Lago T150-C SS

The coupe's nickname "Goutte d-Eau" or "water drop" was applied after the reveal at the Paris Motor Show in 1937. Often cited as one of the most beautiful cars ever built, 11 cars were made, 10 of which were based on the 104-inch T150-C SS frame and one on the 116-inch T23. All of them had a standard T150-C engine that produced 140 horsepower.
The 4-litre engine and shortened version of the competition chassis allowed the car to make 100 mph. The Teardrop ended up in the Oscar Davis Collection, one of the world's finest. The collection of 27 vehicles is valued over $100m. It is being unwound at RM Sotheby's. The car may bring $10m.
The list features some of the most rarified cars in the world including a 1937 BMW 328 Mille Miglia roadster, a 1938 Alfa Romeo 6C 2300B, a 1953 Ferrari 375MM Spider and the 1937 Talbot-Lago T150-C SS Teardrop Coupe. Two spectacular Maserati are also crossing the block – a 1955 Maserati A6G/54 2000 Spyder ($5m) and a 1957 Maserati 450S Spider ($10m).
