  • Description

    THE IMPRINT "MADE IN FRANCE" OFTEN SIGNIFIES LUXURY AND ONE PRODUCT FROM FRANCE THAT IS REALLY LUXURIOUS BEARS THE NAME FACEL VEGA - THE CAR WHICH JUSTIFIABLY CLAIMS TO BE THE FRENCHMAN'S "ROLLS ROYCE."
    THE FIRM, WHICH TURNS OUT ONLY A FEW HUNDRED OF ITS HANDMADE CARS EACH YEAR, TODAY, (WEDNESDAY), ANNOUNCED ITS MODELS FOR 1965 INCLUDING A NEW CAR, THE FACEL SIX.

    THE FACEL 6 WILL BE THE INTERMEDIATE MODEL BETWEEN THE FOUR-CYLINDER FACEL TWO AND THE 8-CYLINDER FACEL THREE. POWERED BY A BRITISH-BUILT B.M.C. ENGINE, IT DEVELOPS 150 BRAKE HORSEPOWER AT 5,250 REVOLUTIONS PER MINUTE AND ALLOWS THE CAR TO ATTAIN A TOP SPEED OF 121 MILES AN HOUR (195 KMS/HOUR).

    THE STYLISH BODYWORK WHICH HAS BECOME THE HALLMARK OF FACEL VEGA HAS BEEN RETAINED, ALTHOUGH THE FACEL 6 IS LOWER AND LONGER THAN THE OTHER TWO MODELS. IT ALSO HAS A NEW TYPE OF CHASSIS SPECIALLY DEVELOPED TO CATER FOR A NEW SUSPENSION SYSTEM WHICH, IN TURN, PROVIDES EXTRA ROOM FOR THE PASSENGERS.

    THE FACEL 6 WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE WORLD'S MARKETS AS FROM NEXT MONTH AND IN TWO VERSIONS - A FOUR-SEATER COUPE AND A TWO-SEATER CONVERTIBLE WITH OPTIONAL HARD-TOP.

    THE PRICE: WELL NO DETAILS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED, BUT IT WILL CERTAINLY BE FOR THE MOTORIST WHO CAN REALLY AFFORD IT.
