Born in 1954, Peter Larsen has been a chronic gearhead all his life. Those who were there have said that the first word he learned to utter was “Opel”. Peter Larsen is a Fulbright scholar and holds a Ph.D. in English literature and semiotics from the University of Copenhagen and Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. He has a wide taste in cars having owned automobiles as varied as a Bizzarrini, Facel-Vega, a Duesenberg Model J and a number of Maseratis. However, while the Italian and American classics are stimulating, his enduring fascination has been with French cars in general and Talbot-Lago in particular, including ownership of two Grand Sports. Another great interest is coachwork and coachbuilding. The great French carrossiers are an unending source of fascinating shapes to study. Peter Larsen has worked for many years in the entertainment industry and is now involved in linguistic work. He lives in Copenhagen and is planning to write more books about French carrossiers
