Prices for Mk4 Toyota Supra models are currently on the rise, and one example recently sold for a hefty 173,600 in the United States.
The Supra in question is a 1994 model outfitted with the desirable twin-turbocharged 2ZJ engine. In addition, the car includes Toyota’s six-speed manual transmission, the factory targa top, is painted black and outfitted with a tan interior. What’s more, the Japanese sports car crossed the auction block with just 11,200 miles (18,024 km) under its belt.
RM Sotheby’s listing of the car shows that it was sold new in Illinois and stayed there for at least two years, racking up almost 6,000 miles (9,656 km). It was later imported to Switzerland roughly 12 months ago before finding its way back to the United States.
In 2015, the Supra was listed for sale by St. Louis Car Museum and Sales with 10,553 miles (16,983 km) for $99,000. Many Supra enthusiasts were shocked at this asking price, but as it turns out, it may have actually been conservative.
Depending on the market, the twin-turbo, fourth-generation Supra pumped out up to 321 hp at 5600 rpm and 315 lb-ft (427 Nm) of torque at 4000 rpm. Range-topping models sold in the United States could reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than 5 seconds and record low-13 second runs down the quarter mile.
The Mk4 Supra is also a favorite among tuning companies and finding one that’s original without a huge number of miles on the clock is difficult. So maybe we shouldn’t be surprised this example sold for so much then.
