Beautiful and iconic Franco-American Grande Routière 1961 FACEL VEGA HK500 COUPÉ
Delivered new to the USA in 1962
Fully restored between 2010 and 2014

 

This special and beautiful exemplar had an exceptionally comprehensive restoration between 2010 and 2014 and has just made only 44 kilometers since. The car is 'like new' and represent a rare opportunity to acquire a very well restored examplar of this beautiful and exclusive Icon. The car comes with all the customs documents, assorted Polish paperwork, and a copy of its old California Ownership Certificate (1986).

The HK500 carried the envied official title at the time of "the world's fastest four-seater coupe".

In October 1960, Paul Frère clocked an HK500 at 237.154 km/h on a Belgian motorway.

The HK500 had a 360 bhp (268 kW) 6.3 litre Chrysler V8, giving it a top speed of 147 mph (237 km/h). It could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 8.5 seconds. Initially, disc brakes were optional, becoming standard in April1960. The name of HK500 means that the car had a power to weight ratio of 5 kg per horsepower (Horse per Kilogram = 5).

According to Motor magazine, the HK500 is a brilliant combination of good comfort and had an exceptional roadholding. The HK500 production amounted to just 489 units between 1958 and 1961.
