1961 Facel Vega HK500

Running buyers around $100,000, the Facel Vega HK500 is far and away the most affordable car on our list; however, this spirited French model is more than worthy amongst its more famous peers like Ferrari and Rolls-Royce. Fitted with a beefy 6.3-liter, 360-horsepower Chrysler-built V8, the HK500 tore through European thoroughfares at a top speed of 147 mph. Featuring an aerodynamic, American-inspired body shape, the HK500 unfortunately also burned fuel as fast as its counterparts in Detroit — thanks to its muscular, if gas-guzzling, engine, the four-seat sports coupe only earned an average of 14 mpg.

Country of Origin: France
Years Produced: 1958-1961
Estimated Value: $95,000-$125,000
