I've said it before and I'll say it again: The first production model of a car that has rolled off the production line is euphoria for car collectors. Even more if the purchased car is rich and legendary epic like the Toyota Supra 2020.
As announced last month, the first production model of the A90 Supra was sold at the Barrett-Jackson charity auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. The first Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was sold at the Barrett Jackson auction for $ 1.1 million. The winning bidder was Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of the aforementioned auction house, with all the proceeds of the charity.
For the Toyota In a sports car on lot # 3010, the hammer fell at $ 2.1 million. As with the first Shelby GT500, all proceeds from the sale of the first Supra would go to charities, namely the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation – the latter will assist affected post-September 11 veterans and their families.
The winning bidder owns the rights to the first production of the Toyota Supra, which happens to be the first version of the iconic sports coupe in the US, and carries the chassis number 20201 – "2020" stands for the In This Year the GR Supra was reintroduced, while "1" takes its place as the first model from the production line.
In addition, a unique color combination is offered with a combination of dull gray exterior, red mirror caps and mat black wheels. Inside there is a red and black theme as well as carbon fiber inserts that fit the convincing exterior design.
Apart from the exclusive color theme, the first Supra production will be delivered with an engine cover signed by Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda. The winning bidder will also receive a full VIP racetrack experience, including a fully-featured, professional racing suit, two VIP passes and hot passes for TOYOTA OWNERS 400 – Richmond Raceway and the opportunity to race the Pace Car with Michael Waltrip , Sure, the return of the Japanese icon has its healthy share of Ravern and naysayers, but the world has not yet experienced the extraordinary performance of the production specification Supra. If that has developed well and the world begins to welcome the return of the Supra, the first production model of the most hated generation of the legendary sports coupe would not be so bad.
