The First 2020 Toyota Supra Sold for P 110 Million

A 1994 Toyota Supra shocked the world when it fetched USD 121 (~ P 6.3 million) at an auction recently (and it was subsequently put back on sale by a Toyota dealer for USD 500,000 (~ P 26.3 million), but how much is one willing to pay for a fifth-generation 2020 Supra? Well, apparently a ton of money.

The first production 2020 Supra to roll off the assembly line, “Global #1,” was auctioned for a cool USD 2.1 million (~ P 110 million). This Supra is a very special in that it’s the only one to carry a VIN number that will end in 20201—with “2020” representing the year the Supra was reintroduced and “1” marking it as the first vehicle to roll off the production line.

This one-of-a-kind Supra carries a matte gray exterior, red mirror caps, and matte black wheels. Inside, the Supra is just as unique, with a red interior and carbon-fiber inserts representing the first of the launch edition for the U.S. market.

Unlike the 1994 Supra though, proceeds of the 2020 Supra’s sale go all straight to charity, particularly the American Heart Association (AHA) and the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF).

The American Heart Association (AHA), the U.S. ’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke, and the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF), which finds, funds and shape programs benefitting post-9/11 impacted veterans and their families.

The winning bidder also received a full VIP race track experience that includes a fully customized professional racing suit, two VIP passes, and hot passes to Toyota Owners 400 - Richmond Raceway and a chance to drive the pace car and do hot laps with NASCAR racing driver Michael Waltrip.
