First 2020 Toyota Supra Delivered To Its Lucky Owner Who Paid $2.1 Million For It

The keys have just been handed over the very first 2020 Toyota Supra customer car in a special presentation in Dallas, Texas.

Those with a good memory will recall the first Supra was sold for a cool $2.1 million at a Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona in January. That’s a lot of money to pay for a sports car which starts at $49,990 in the United States.

Fortunately, the winning bidder is now the owner of a Supra unlike any other. Most importantly, the car is painted in a custom shade dubbed Phantom Matte Grey. The Supra is also one of the Launch Edition models which means it receives unique badging and bright red wing mirror caps. A Toyota racing suit and a photo signed by the Japanese brand’s president Akio Toyoda was also included in the sale. Toyoda also signed the car’s engine cover.

The car was purchased by John Staluppi, the owner of a Toyota dealership in Texas. In addition to the special touches adorning the car’s exterior, it has a VIN ending in 20201, signifying it as being the very first 2020 model year Supra to roll off the production line.

All of the money raised from the sale of this Supra will benefit the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation which serves veteran and military families.

Members of the media had the opportunity to test the new Supra earlier this year and we’re happy to report that it’s been worth the long weight. It’s engaging to drive and the BMW-sourced inline-six turbocharged engine with 335 hp and 364 lb-ft makes it very quick.

    Who wants to bet that this will sit in a climate controlled garage for well over 30+ years? And end up at Barrett Jackson?

      I say about 17 years. I don’t see this car being THAT impactful to still draw big money three decades from now. However, if someone has the first Ferrari 458 Speciale that is decked out in signatures, that would be. The last high revving NA V8 supercar from Ferrari in it’s class.

      It is bought as a collection piece, of course.

  • Callanish

    Good causes to give the money to, but a helluva lot of money to pay for a run of the mill Supra with a fancy paint job.

    politely pointing this out to the author, you have typo:

    Hopefully, the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff foundation will benefit greatly from the money this brought at auction.

  • Tinky-Winky

    I saw one driving by the other day. It looked worse than in the photos, especially the tacky rear end. For a 60k+ car it didn’t feel that special, more like next gen GT86.

  • StrangerGP

    Hm, lemme think, a Koenigsegg or a Toyota?

    2.1 million dollars for a toyota lol, some people are stupid as a bag of bricks.
