2nd place – Jack Shepherdson’s Top 10 Classic Grand Touring Cars
If you were to argue that an automobile can be art, this is the car you would look too. Only 9 Goutee D’Eau’s, or teardrops, were built from 1937, making the T150 not only one of the prettiest cars ever built, but also one of the rarest.
Designed by Figoni et Falaschi, the Goutte D’Eau was the pinnicle of excess in the Art Deco era. Despite the T150’s extensive luxury, Antonio Lago’s masterpiece was incredibly adept on both the road and track. Fitted with a mechanical preselector gearbox and a 4-litre straight 6, this was a car you could race one day and present at concours the next.
