The company diversified, including making car bodies for Panhard and Simca. It introduced the Vega in 1954, a handsome and luxuriously appointed four-seater powered by a 180 bhp DeSoto Hemi.Its small car, the Facellia, was launched at the Paris Auto Show in October 1959. An updated version, the F2, was first shown at Geneva in March 1961, addressing deficiencies of the earlier cars. This is one of just two prototypes and 679 production cabriolets built between March 1960 and June 1962. Power is supplied by a 1,646 cc twin-cam four-cylinder engine backed up by a Pont-a-Mousson four-speed manual gearbox. Disc brakes provide stopping power.Presented in red paint over black leather, this is a charming automobile and a brilliant alternative to a Mercedes-Benz 190 SL or an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider.Um de apenas 679 Facellia construídosO irmão mais novo do HK500 e do Facel Vega IIA Forges et Ateliers de Construction d'Eure et de Loire SA, ou Facel, foi fundada em 1938, para produzir maquinaria pesada para a indústria aeronáutica.

Introduziu o Vega em 1954, um bonito e luxuoso coupé de quatro lugares equipado, com um motor DeSoto Hemi de 180 cv.O seu automóvel mais pequeno, o Facellia, foi lançado no salão automóvel de Paris, em outubro de 1959. Uma versão atualizada, o F2, foi mostrado pela primeira vez em Genebra, em março de 1961, retificando as deficiências das unidades anteriores. Este é um de apenas dois protótipos e 679 cabriolets de produção construídos entre março de 1960 e junho de 1962. Animado por um motor de quatro cilindros com duplo veio de excêntricos e 1646 cc, tem a transmissão assegurada mediante uma caixa manual de quatro velocidades Pont-a-Mousson.
