Talbot is an vehicle manufacturer’s brand whose history is one of the industry's most complex.
Talbot, founded in 1903, was originally the British brand name used to sell imported French Clément-Bayard cars. Locally designed cars followed and were produced from 1906 with an output of 50 to 60 cars a month by 1910. A Talbot was the first car to cover 100 miles (160 kilometres) in an hour in 1913.
Between 1935 and 1986 the company has been variously owned by Rootes, Chrysler and Peugeot, with an attempt to resurrect the brand in planned in 2008 to target low-budget buyers.
I the 1980s a range of Talbot based motorhomes was sold, and a few of these can occasionally still be seen.

Looks like a Talbot badge on the front but apart from the curly stripes no other visible...
