Toyota delivers first 2020 Supra by Drew Johnson
Supra No. 20201 went for a staggering $2.1 million.
Toyota has delivered its first Supra in 20-years; the Japanese automaker announced this week that "Global 1,” the first example of the revived Supra sports car, was delivered to Toyota dealer John Staluppi.
Although he's only taking delivery now, Staluppi actually bought the first Supra back in January at the Barrett-Jackson auctions in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Toyota dealer paid the princely sum of $2.1 million to land the rights to the first gen-five Supra off the production line.
Staluppi's Supra is a Launch Edition model painted in matte gray. The interior is finished in red leather, which is an exclusive option for certain colors of the Launch Edition car.
In addition to throwing Staluppi the keys to his new Supra, Toyota also tossed him some pretty neat swag. During a small presentation with Toyota exec Bob Carter, the automaker gifted the owner of Supra No. 1 with a racing suit and the signature of Toyota head Toyoda Akio on the car's engine cover.
Although Staluppi had to pay a fair bit over sticker to land the first Supra, he's probably happy to know it went to a good cause. Toyota is donating all the proceeds from the auction to the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which serves veteran and military families.
