1956→1957 Facel Vega FV2B

Like all Facel Vegas, the FV2B was an expensive grand tourer that was heavy, large and expensive, but it was also one of the finest French cars of the 1950s. In 1956 Facel fitted a larger 5.40 liter in the FV2 and created the FV2B. Naturally the car had more power, but Facel also upgraded the electrical system to 12 volts.

In 1957 Facel Vage updated the body design to include twin, stacked headlights and two small grills per side.

In the two year period, 62 cars were built of which two were Drop Head Coupes.
