The said car was bought for a whopping $2.1 million, with all proceeds going to the American Heart Association and the Bob Wooodruff Foundation. Of course, there’s more to jst being the very first Supra to roll off the assembly line. This car comes with a few special extras for its lucky owner.

The car itself is finished in a one-of-one paint scheme comprised of a matte grey paint job with red mirrors caps and black wheels. The interior is likewise done up in the same grey and black theme. Beisdes this, the car with Vehicle Identification Number 20201 has its engine cover signed by Toyota President Akio Toyoda.
