Look At This 1996 Rinspeed Yello Talbo We Found In Frankfurt (And It’s For Sale)

Built as an homage to all things retro, this 1996 Rinspeed Yello Talbo is based on the design of the Talbot-Lago 150 SS by ‘Figoni & Falaschi’ of 1938. The car you see here has a Pastel Yellow exterior and a blue leather interior, and is currently on display in Frankfurt.

The Yello Talbo made its world premiere back in 1996 at the Geneva Motor Show, which was only fitting since Rinspeed themselves are a Swiss company.

As you can see, the car features a for sale note by Potomac Classics, asking potential buyers for €125,000 ($137,470). In return for your money, you would get to ride around in something pretty unique, that also happens to be reasonably quick, even by 2019 standards.

The Rinspeed Yello Talbo is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine producing 320 HP. In a straight line, it can accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.5 seconds with the aid of an automatic gearbox, roughly the same as a BMW Z4 sDrive30i.

It also comes with an Eibach suspension and 20-inch BBS RS-II wheels. Unlike the car on which it is based, the Yello Talbo also has some very interesting (and arguably stylish) rear fender cut-outs.

Then there’s the blue leather interior, which is drenched in “En Soie” fabrics. Other features include the Pioneer stereo system and a “Crash” watch made from recycled aluminum that can be removed from the center hub of the steering wheel and placed on the driver’s wrist – and vice versa.
