Facel Vega FV1 1955
2014 Concours d'Elegance Paleis het Loo - Apeldoorn (NL)
The first Facel Vega model was introduced in February 1955, internally designated as the FV. After 10 were made it was followed by the FV1 in March 1955. The main difference was that a larger capacity DeSoto V8 engine was fitted, now displacing 4.8 litre instead of 4.5. Power output was 200 hp, which propelled this model up to 194 kph. There were 33 produced of the FV1 model, of which 7 were cabriolets.
