Fiva Id. Card
Despite many people thinking that the beginning of the
successful racing era of this British marque was related
with the launch of the powerful 105 model
The Talbot 90 Sports Competition
with its four seat pointed tail body
was really the most competitive car
made by this London based company during the thirties
Another historical mistake is
that some people say Talbot was French
They forget the Anglo-Saxon creativity
and the future minded engineering job
of Mr. Clement Talbot
He built these fabulous cars from 1903 up to 1938
when, n facts, he South Kensington factory
was sold to a French competitor
After the company started a good production
and developed some technical innovations in the
automobile field such as the Pre-Selector gear-box
the six cylinders engine and the use of the wire wheels
In 1930 a big emphasis put the "90" on the market
They only produced 216 units until the end of 1933
But it could be purchased in several different versions:
Touring
Saloon
And sports, f course

With a modern engine, hat was capable of more than 140 bhp in the racing scheme
A dozen of cars were sent to the most important races of the times;
In the 1932 Mille Miglia
The team of Mr.Lewis and Mr.Barnard was 25th at the arrival in Brescia
Anyway, he real international success of the "90"
was due to the professional aim of the Fox & Nicholl's team of Tolworth
Surrey; their famous cars in the tipical "double green" livery
were 3rd and 4th at Le mans in 1930
And then they placed three cars in the first three positions
of the TT and
The 500 Miles race of Brooklands in 1931
Our "Talbot 90 Competition"
is in its original specification
With this duo-tone green body
It has a sound and performing engine
Four comfortable green leather seats
And of course the wonderful Pre-Selector gearbox
This is a quite famous car
During it's history it entered
many important events all over Europe
Coupe des Alpes
Targa Florio
Rally Neige et Glace
To name just a view of them
