2020 Toyota Supra Price
All of a sudden, that low mileage ’93 Supra seems like a good deal at $100,000. Why? Well, the first 2020 Toyota Supra to roll off the production line just sold for $2.1 million at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction. It’s a Launch Edition painted in matte gray, and all proceeds for the auction go to the American Heart Association and Bob Woodruff Foundation.

Certainly being a charity car, and the first of its kind drove up the price, but this is still a shocking amount of money for the new Supra, even one of the 1,500 Launch Edition models. The Launch Edition Supras have a base price of $56,180. That means this first Supra cost over 37 times the price of, say, the second or third examples. 2020 Toyota Supra Price.
Also impressive is that this Supra sold for $1 million more than the first 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. That car has substantially more impressive specifications with over 700 horsepower. But of course, there have been GT500s for the past decade or so, and the Supra has been gone since the late 1990s. Source: www.autoblog.com
2020 Toyota Supra for Charity
hen Toyota announced that it would auction off the very first 2020 Toyota Supra for charity, we knew it would pull in big bucks, and boy, we weren’t wrong. Finding its very first owner at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona on Saturday night, the much-hyped Toyota two-seater didn’t disappoint, as Supra VIN 20201 sold for a colossal $2.1 million. 2020 Toyota Supra Price
That’s almost double what the first 2020 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 pulled at the same venue, 42 times the 2020 Supra’s starting MSRP of $49,990, and over 17 times more than what that pristine 1994 version sold for on Bring a Trailer a couple weeks ago.
The car is finished in matte gray with matte black wheels and, to make it really stand out at Cars and Coffee, gloss red wing mirrors. To continue the racer-boy theme, the interior is red with carbon fiber inserts. In addition to the car, $2.1 million also bought the unidentified, successful bidder a custom racing suit and two VIP passes to the Toyota Owners 400 NASCAR race in Richmond, Virginia scheduled for April. The deal also includes “a chance” to drive the pace car and get on the track with NASCAR driver and commentator Michael Waltrip.
In any other context, $2.1 million for a Toyota Supra of any vintage and a couple of race tickets would probably be a pretty bad deal. Because it’s all going to charity, however, that’s not really the case here. 2020 Toyota Supra Price
All that coin will be donated to the American Heart Association as well as the Bob Woodruff Foundation, a non-profit that helps out veterans and service members who were affected by 9/11.
“As our nation’s veterans return home, the Bob Woodruff Foundation helps ensure that those who are impacted by their service are supported by best-in-class programs addressing their current and long-term needs,” said BWF CEO Anne Marie Dougherty.
American Heart Association CEO Nancy Brown added, “Toyota knows acceleration, so it’s no surprise their generous support is helping accelerate science to end heart disease and stroke, the world’s No. 1 and No. 2 killers worldwide. The American Heart Association is honored to partner with Toyota to create healthier communities and empower people to be in the driver’s seat of their health.”
Kudos to the new, and very first 2020 Supra owner.
What is the American Heart Association
The American Heart Association (AHA) is a non-profit organization in the United States that funds cardiovascular medical research, educates consumers on healthy living and fosters appropriate cardiac care in an effort to reduce disability and deaths caused by cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Originally formed in New York City in 1924 as the Association for the Prevention and Relief of Heart Disease, it is currently headquartered in Dallas, Texas. The American Heart Association is a national voluntary health agency.
They are known for publishing guidelines on cardiovascular disease and prevention, standards on basic life support and advanced cardiac life support (ACLS), and in 2014 issued its first guidelines for preventing strokes in women. They are known also for operating a number of highly visible public service campaigns starting in the 1970s, and also operate a number of fundraising events.
In 1994, the Chronicle of Philanthropy, an industry publication, released a study that showed the American Heart Association was ranked as the 5th “most popular charity/non-profit in America.” The Association was listed as the 22nd largest charity in the use in the 2018 annual by Forbes.
