$2.1-million Toyota GR Supra turned over to owner

June 27,2019

THE man who in January paid $2.1 million at a Barrett-Jackson auction for the first 2020 Toyota GR Supra to roll off the production line has received his car.

John Staluppi, a Toyota dealer, on June 24 took delivery of his special GR Supra at Toyota’s headquarters in Plano, Texas.

The “Global #1” GR Supra is the only VIN that will end in 20201— with “2020” representing the year the Supra was reintroduced and “1” marking it as the first vehicle to roll off the production line. The car’s exterior is factory-finished in matte gray, with red mirror caps and matte black wheels. The red interior is accented with carbon-fiber inserts.

The release of the Global #1 GR Supra represents the first of the launch edition for the US market.

Upon picking up his car, Staluppi was given by Toyota executive vice-president of sales Bob Carter a Toyota racing suit and a signed photo from Toyota Motor Corp. president Akio Toyoda.

Toyoda signed the Global #1 GR Supra’s engine cover to commemorate the first Supra produced in 20 years.
