I predict that same Facellisti will come and lambast me in the comments for this..but...the original 4-banger under the Facellia's gorgeous hood was built by some French company and designed with 2 camshaft bearings instead of the typical 4 or 5 in a 4-cylinder engine built on planet earth...which is unfortunate because the idea of a French car with some exotic 4-cylinder French built engine does sound awesome...right up to the point when it grenades into a million pieces of French steel shavings. Exotique, bien sur!
The original engine is gone, and this Facellia is now powered by a 260 cubic inch small block Ford V8 -- and the rockets red glare...the bombs bursting in air...oopps..sorry, just blurted out. Obviously this car will need some sorting out before you can
