1960 FA­CEL VEGA HK500

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING - NICK LARKIN ED­I­TOR AT LARGE

WHY I LOVE IT A pin­na­cle of ex­pen­sive French el­e­gance, but with a throb­bing, huge Amer­i­can V8 en­gine

The Fa­cel Vega is a kalei­do­scope of el­e­gance, ex­pense and ex­clu­siv­ity. Mo­tor­ing on the grand­est of scales, with per­fect sleek and beau­ti­ful coupé lines awash with so many sub­tle styling de­tails and a dash­board that looks like it be­longs in an air­craft. Does the front of the car re­sem­ble BMC ‘Fa­rina’ Wolse­ley 16/60? Maybe that’s a bit too much praise! A pow­er­ful car for pow­er­ful peo­ple, the all-Amer­i­can Chrysler 6.3-litre V8 en­gine gives 390bhp and 147mph, with all four bar­rels a-pop­pin’. So to joy­ous re­al­ity, and here is the chance for some­one to ac­quire a unique 35,000-mile HK500 for the price of a

Jaguar E-type.

ES­TI­MATE £130150k
