This beautiful V8-powered coupe is one the most desirable Facels
Continuing Facel Vega’s policy of regular updates, the HK500 remained in production for a mere two years, moving over for the Facel II. The new car featured sharper styling and an even more powerful Chrysler V8, now boasting 390bhp and finally allowing the French supercar to top a genuine 150mph. However, the chassis and steering were simply not good enough to control all this power, marring what was an extremely appealing package. Despite all that, a very cool car today, especially as it’s the last in the line of big V8 Facel Vegas.
