The new Toyota Supra just what we know from a week ago and, for the moment, seems to want to continue hogging the limelight. Not without reason, and it is not common (nor probably never will be) to meet with a Supra, the price of which reaches seven digits. It is what has gotten the first Toyota Supra’s production, which has been sold at auction for $ 2.1 million, an amount certainly more like that of the Bugatti Chiron, Ferrari LaFerrari and company.
The Toyota Supra with chassis 20201, the first out of the production line, has not sold as one. At the annual auction of Barrett-Jackson, held this past weekend in Scottsdale (Arizona, Usa), the new car from Toyota has grabbed all the attention in spite of the quantity, quality and variety of cars they had at the event. And that is probably even the most optimistic had hoped that the first, Above production of the new generation is going to sell for $ 2.1 million (1.850.000 euros at the current exchange rate, approximately), a figure that makes the Toyota more expensive ever sold.
That astronomical figure hides a good cause behind it. The $ 2.1 million they have paid for this Above iran allocated in full to two charities: the American Heart Association (American Heart Association) and the Foundation Bob Woodruff, dedicated to helping the veterans who have participated in wars since the 11-S.
The first Toyota Supra Mk V production saw a body painted in matt grey, wheels matte black and red accents on the mirrors, the interior is also of red color with carbon fiber inserts. In addition, the engine bay carries the signature of Akio Toyoda, the CEO of the company nippon.
In addition to the car, your lucky (and wealthy) owner takes a professional set of overalls, shoes, gloves and helmet of careers, in addition to VIP passes to the race Toyota Owners 400, which will include the opportunity to drive the safety car and give a few quick laps with driver Michael Waltrip.
