TALBOT-LAGO LAGO SPORT/AMERICA

2+2 coupè.

Pretty little coupè with new lightweight tubular chassis and shrunken version of Grand Sport body. Revised five-bearing alloy-head 'four' good for 110-115mph; ZF and Pont-à-Mousson 'boxes. Not a success- and re-engined Lago America, with small-bore BMW V8, fails to save the day. Last five cars have Simca/Ford flathead V8.
