@ Fangio Man: They're classy, and quite frankly, Facel Vegas weren't exactly the safest cars in the world.

Oh, exactly. How couldn't I associate Facel with an old W100 S-Class Benz from the first moment? They're so similar! Mercedes seems just much cheaper and much less powerful. :D

@Shaggy
Yeah, suicide doors.

@ Mental: You mean suicide doors?
@ Super8: Another great Mopar powered classic, and it's not even American. ;)

Thank's to Mental, now I know about this car. This is Facel-Vega Excellence. It has Chrysler B series firepower V8 under the hood. It was a fast sedan in 1960's since it can reach 149 mph and 0-60 in 6.1 sec but that performance came from 1964 model.
