The resurrection of the Facel Vega brand has become a topic of conversation for the past year. While there has been no confirmation on when the revived HK Coupe Concept is going to be revealed, some indications from the people behind the project — one Caroline Castets — seem to suggest that this car is more than just a pipedream.
There’s still that issue of trademarks and the right for the new folks to use the "Facel" brand name, but that’s being discussed as we speak, so any developments on that will probably make news anyway.
As far as the car itself is concerned, the release of a new photo finally shows its front end and gives us an indication of what to expect for this sports car. So, what’s the early aesthetic feedback?
It’s hard to tell because the image is a little too dark for our liking. However, judging from the aggressive angles and the sloping hood, there are some sports car elements there that we like. At the very least, that front end is already looking better than the shagglebot rear that looks like it was designed with the idea of slapping components one on top of the other.
