7K-Mile Toyota Supra Turbo Just Sold For A Mind-Boggling $121,000

When a low-mileage Toyota Supra Turbo with a manual transmission pops up for sale, everyone knows that someone is willing to write a really big cheque for it. What we didn’t expect is that this bright red Supra Turbo with just over 7,000 miles on the odometer was going to sell for $121,000. That’s simply insane.

The auction of this pristine Supra took place over at Bring A Trailer, where another ultra low mileage Supra Turbo was sold for $80,500 last March. The difference between the two cars? This one is fitted with the desirable six-speed Getrag V160 manual transmission, making it the Holy Grail of Supras.

According to the description, the car was first leased in 1994 in Florida, before moving to Pennsylvania in 1999, when the lessee bought the car. The car was bought by the selling dealer 20 months ago and since then it’s been stored in a climate controlled facility as part of a personal collection.

The 3.0-liter 2JZ-GTE twin-turbo straight-six engine produced 320hp and 315lb-ft of torque when new.

Sure it is as mint as Supras can get but $121,000? The only Supra that went for a higher price is one of the original Fast & Furious movie cars, sold for $185,000. Even the legendary Top Secret V12 Supra didn’t manage to break the $100k barrier, selling for a little over $80k a year ago.

Is this the world’s most expensive Toyota Supra Turbo ever to exchange hands publicly and the point where Supra prices are going to explode? It probably is.

    This is no surprise, classic Japanese cars have been gaining value for awhile.

    • disqus_EBclYzQDil

      Agree. But with that money, I’d probably get something more legendary and record setting perhaps. I remember seeing an even older Japanese performance car, a very mint 94 skyline GT-R BNR32 to be exact, that was sold for 250,000 usd in Japan. God, I love that car, it almost smells new.

    Why not? Hell, $121K is a steal.

    How many mint condition, completely unmolested and fully stock legendary Japanese sports coupe’s from the 90’s with only 7K miles in the best spec (Twin Turbo + Manual) come up for sale on a daily basis today?

    • Blanka Li

      Very few. But the shame is in the car not being driven, IMHO.

  • WeltyRoundel

    SOMEBODY HAS LOST THEIR
    MIND @ $121K There are plenty of options out there.

    • Seats & a steering wheel

      It’s not too bad, it’s asuper rare in this condition and an iconic modern day classic that still looks amazing . People pay 10,20,30 million for an old Ferrari… imagine what you could do with that kind of money!

      • getoffme

        BS. It is an ancient piece of garbage.

        • Bo Hanan

          They could have paid another $10K if the car were black.

  • getoffme

    There goes world hunger.

  • Bash

    Love the car, hate that price.
    But I hope who ever bought it does ruin it with ugly nasty cheap upgrades and tunes.

  • Nathan Oliver

    Back when these came out not many production cars could come close to the almost .90 they could pull on the g-pad. These and Lotus were my favs

  • FlameWater

    There`s probably 100 cars alone that could smoke this for that price.

  • disqus_EBclYzQDil

    Reminds me of a very mint early 90s GT-R, BNR32, being sold for 250,000 usd. And that’s even in their homeland, Japan. Really love it!

  • Trackhacker

    Whoever owned the car, sure didn’t enjoy it. Sucks to be them. The new owner is lucky….but will be interesting to see if he enjoys it or just stores it.

    • Abu Sayyaff

      Oh cut the crap, he’ll surely enjoy the 121k !!

  • JayDee Cook

    It’s plain stupid. Cars are meant to be driven, now pu
    If you drive it, it’s worthless. So what, park it and try to profit in a few years ? Go but art.

  • No one haven’t done the Fast and Furious “More than you can afford pal” joke?

    • Bash

      Brilliant!

  • ksegg

    Cars like the Mk.IV Supra can go up this high because cars like this simply don’t exist anymore.

    A few months ago there was a mint condition, showroom brand new E39 M5 that also sold for 6 figures.
