The very first production 2020 Toyota GR Supra to roll off the assembly line, “Global #1,” was auctioned at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale today for charity, and it fetched an incredible $2.1-million. All proceeds will go to support the American Heart Association(AHA) and the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF). There will not be another 2020 Toyota GR Supra like this one, as “Global #1” is the only VIN that will end in 20201 – with “2020” representing the year the Supra was reintroduced to the world and “1” marking it as the first vehicle to roll off the production line. Its exterior is also factory-finished with sleek matte gray color, red mirror caps and matte black wheels. Inside, you’ll find a red interior and carbon-fiber inserts representing the first of the launch edition for the U.S. market.

“We did the first production 2020 GR Supra justice tonight at Barrett-Jackson. When Toyota launches a vehicle of this caliber, you only get one chance to do it right – and this auction was the perfect setting. After 20 years, this marks the return of a legend. Sportscar enthusiasts have been dreaming to slide behind the wheel of an all-new Supra – and we’re happy to be a part of turning that dream into a reality,” said Bob Carter, executive vice president of sales, Toyota Motor North America.
