For sale by auction 13 September 2020 – Collection André Trigano by Artcurial Motorcars

French title
Chassis No BE8
Engine No TY7-315

- Rare representative of a prestigious French manufacturer
- Recent and meticulous restoration
- In the collection since 1978
- No reserve

This Facel was once presented at a previous Artcurial auction sale by Andre Trigano but, since the buyer could not honour his bid, Mr Trigano ended up retrieving the car. He took that opportunity to restore it, with the bodywork repainted in black which reflected beautifully its design and a handsomely crafted beige leather upholstery. The interior features an extremely refined dashboard and its wood-effect paint, as well as its particularly luxurious equipment including electric windows and a vintage "His Master's Voice" car radio. "The restoration was quite challenging and we had to re-manufacture certain untraceable parts, like the ones part of the washer for instance" says Andre Trigano. It was in March 1978 that he discovered this car in his area, which belonged since 1966 to an owner based in Haute-Garonne. It is fitted with a Chrysler Typhoon V8 engine and a manual gearbox, enabling the driver to fully maximise its 345 hp potential. It now has a mileage of 89,178 km, most likely to be original.
This HK 500 is one of the most beautiful, fastest and rarest post-war French GT cars, with a production limited to 490 units. It also bears witness to Jean Daninos' courageous attempt to establish a prestigious French brand on the market. With its performance, refinement, condition and history, this example has many assets for those who are looking for this exclusive model.


We inform buyers that all the vehicles in the collection have been little used during the last years as they are part of a museum collection. They are sold as presented and therefore require recommissioning before being driven on the public roads.

PLEASE NOTE THAT CONTRARY TO WHAT IS STATED IN THE PRINTED CATALOGUE, THE CAR HAS A RESERVE PRICE.

Estimate: 120 000 - 160 000 €
