Facel Vega Reviews
For a short time during the 1950s and ‘60s, France had a flagship car that could hold its head high among the cream of the opposition. Brainchild of Jean Daninos, the owner of Forges et Ateliers de Construction d'Eure et Loire – or Facel for short – the manufacturer of high quality metal products, the Facel Vega was an impressive machine.
The company carved a reputation building complete car bodies for Panhard, Simca and Ford France, but Daninos wanted to build his own GT cars. He realised his dream when he introduced his first in-house car, the Facel Vega FV.
