Proceeds from the auction will go to two charities.
Well, the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 didn’t last long in the limelight with its $1.1 million hammer price. This 2020 Toyota Supra, VIN number 20201, just sold at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona. The final hammer price — are you sitting down? — was $2.1 million. The winning bidder? John Staluppi, who owns the Cars of Dreams museum in Palm Beach, Florida.
Of course, this isn’t just any Supra. This matte gray example is a one-of-one car, with the engine cover signed by Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda. Under the hood, there’s a 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six engine with 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque. Of course, it’s still rear-wheel drive, and that engine comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Now, the regular Supra will sell for quite a bit less than this one just managed. The “regular” Supra starts at just $49,990, with Launch Edition models kicking off at $55,250.
The proceeds from this $2.1 million auction will go to the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation. The BWF, per their website, “partners with community and national programs, organizations and the military community, and advocates like you, to create healthy, positive futures for our service members, veterans and their families. To date, the foundation claims to have invested $57 million in the project, helping 2.5 million veterans and their families.
