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.
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.
