This 1994 Toyota Supra Sold for Brand-New Porsche 911 Money
The price of the 1990’s era Toyota Supra is seriously getting out of hand. If you think a 1994 example fetching USD 121,000 (~ P 6.3 million) is already absurd, well, guess what: someone paid more, a heck of a lot more.
A few days ago, a 1994 Supra sold for USD 173,600 (~ P 9.07 million) at Sotheby’s Amelia Island car auction in Florida. This particular example, a black with a tan interior and a 6-speed manual fetched the new record price. And get this, it’s only done 11,200 miles or a total of 18,000 kilometers, ever.
While RM Sotheby’s largely expected the car to well between USD 100,000 to 120,000 based on the previous record price for a A80 Supra, this twin-turbo example went well beyond the expected price.
The auction house said that this particular example was sold new in Illinois, U.S.A. and remained there for two years, accumulating around 6,000 miles. After that, it was imported to Switzerland about a year ago. It’s said to be “in brilliant and largely original condition throughout.”
Man, for owners of original, unmolested A80 Supras out there, consider this an indication that you could be sitting on a potential gold mine.
