1958 Facel Vega FV4 Typhoon

(February 25, 2018) WALWORTH, Wis.— Mecum’s Los Angeles 2018 collector-car auction held earlier this month in California at Fairplex at Pomona achieved $9 million in overall sales totals, with the top 10 highest sellers heavily populated by modern supercars and a handful of classic beauties.

A 2006 Ford GT in white with blue racing stripes topped all sales at $327,250, followed by a menacing matte-black 2016 Lamborghini Huracan boasting a Vorsteiner Novara Kit that brought $236,500.

One of just 36 built with the dual-quad 354 Hemi engine, a rare and largely unheard of 1958 Facel Vega FV4 Typhoon came in as the auction’s third-highest seller at $214,500. Other top sellers included two Ferrari California Spyders, a 1959 Porsche 356, an Aston Martin Vanquish and a 1968 Shelby GT350 Fastback, to name a few.

As for Road Art offerings, the actual neon sign that hung over the Harley-Davidson visitor/employee entrance at the Milwaukee factory was offered for sale, and strong bids brought the final sale price to a healthy $88,500.
