This 1973 Chevrolet Impala by an auto enthusiast named Craig may look normal at first glance, but it’s much more than meets the eye. Read more for a video showing why.

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.

For those who’ve never heard of this vehicle, the Toyota Sera (EXY10) is basically a 3-door 2+2 hatchback coupe manufactured by Toyota from 1990 to 1996. It was released with a single 1.5 L (1496 cc) inline 4 5E-FHE engine configuration and body style, with optional configurations for its transmission, brakes, cold climate and sound-system.

A 1990 model is heading to the 2019 Barrett-Jaclson Scottsdale, and according to the auction house, this is one of the first Seras to be built and the first one to be imported to the U.S. under the federal 25-year importation law.

Sure, modifying a sports car is fun, but this pristine 1994 Toyota Supra Turbo shows why keeping things stock could be the best way to go for increasing its value. Finished in Renaissance Red over a tan leather interior, this stock Toyota Supra was first leased during 1994 in Florida, and then moved to Pennsylvania in 1999 when the owner eventually purchased the car. It’s been since stored in a climate-controlled facility as part of a private collection, complete with 7,000 original miles, the owner’s manual, a clean Carfax, and a clean Pennsylvania title. The car was just sold for a whopping $121,000 on Bringatrailer.com. Read more for another video, additional pictures and information.
