This Rare Muscle Car Only Exist in 74 Examples!

Learn more about this highly elusive muscle car model, set to be auctioned off soon.

Not only high-end luxury brands offer limited edition versions of their sports cars. In the United States, some muscle cars have also been produced in very limited quantities, such as the Mercury Cyclone Spoiler. This particular model, originating from 1971, has an incredibly low production count of just 74 units. Back in its heyday, this car was not only extremely rare but also one of the most powerful American cars of its time.

It packed a punch with 370 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. Despite its age, there are still sightings of the Mercury Cyclone Spoiler on the road. One such model is set to be auctioned off in Las Vegas by Mecum Auctions. While its estimated price remains undisclosed, it’s safe to assume that this rarity won’t come cheap.

The Aggressive Muscle Car from a Defunct American Brand

The Cyclone Spoiler represents the most aggressive creation from the Mercury brand during the muscle car era. It originated from the Cyclone line but received significant enhancements and more intricate finishes. Despite being an optioned version of the standard Mercury Cyclone, it was undeniably more potent than the base model. Under the hood, it housed a potent Cobra Jet 429 V8 engine, along with technical improvements such as a drag pack suspension designed for racing, a carburetor, and front and rear spoilers.

An Upcoming Auction

The release of the Mercury Cyclone Spoiler just preceded the onset of regulations aimed at controlling CO2 emissions. Eventually, the soaring fuel prices caused the downfall of American muscle cars due to their excessive fuel consumption. However, some of these models still hold a special place in the hearts of collectors.

Now, a 1971 fully restored model of the Mercury Cyclone Spoiler is up for sale at a Mecum Auction. It comes painted in the color Competition Orange, which leans more towards red than true orange. During its release, only seven color options were available: Competition Yellow, Competition Blue, Pastel Blue, Competition Gold, Competition Green, and Competition Orange. Don’t miss your chance to own one of the rarest muscle cars in existence.
