The Facel Vega HK500 was Jean Daninos most successful car, selling 490 units in three years. The model replaced the FV series in 1959 as a more modern GT-class luxury coupe.
The design of the HK500 with vertical twin headlamps and panoramic windscreen took shape between 1956 and 1958, while the chassis design with a 105″ wheelbase remained unchanged. The main innovations were hidden in the running gear: Dunlop disc brakes and power steering were standard on the HK500
