First Toyota Supra built sells for $3.1 million
Toyota’s reborn Supra has been all over the automotive headlines since its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It isn’t due in showrooms until later this year but the first model off the line has already been sold.
Toyota put the #001 Supra up for auction at Barrett-Jackson's annual event in Scottsdale, Arizona, and the final bid came in at a whopping $US2.1 million ($NZ3.1 million).
All proceeds will be shared by the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation. The winner also gets a VIP track day experience that includes a personalised race suit, VIP passes to the Toyota Owners 400 NASCAR round at Richmond Raceway, the chance to drive the pace car and do hot laps with Michael Waltrip.
The multi-million dollar Supra is unique as well. It has a matte grey exterior, matte black wheels, red side mirror caps, a red leather interior, and a carbon fibre dash plaque indicating that it is the first-ever 2020 Supra. It also has a special VIN number ending in 20201.
