On June 20, 2021, at 8:30 a.m. (Japan time), a Toyota Supra (Model 80, hereinafter referred to as "80 Supra") was sold at the Barrett-Jackson Car Auction, the world's largest automobile auction, held in Las Vegas, U.S.A.

 This is a 1994 Targa top model of the generation known as the "Mark IV" in the US.

 In Japan, it is the 80 Supra, but in the U.S., the car was sold under the name "SUPRA" from the model that corresponds to the Celica XX (A40/A50), so the 80 Supra, which is the fourth generation counting from the original A40, is called the Mark IV.

 This year's auction was held from Thursday, June 17th to Saturday, June 19th, and 80 Supra number 744 made its appearance on Saturday evening, June 19th, just after 4:30pm.

 The venue was packed as the car was the talk of the town. Many people came up to the stage to watch the auction.

 The starting price was $100,000, and the price quickly rose to $200,000, $300,000, and finally to $500,000, "SOLD!

 The winning bid was $500,000, but the actual amount to be paid by the winning bidder was $550,000, or about 60 million yen in Japanese yen, due to the auction fee of 10%.

 The 80 Supra sold this time is one of the eight cars made for the movie.

 The body is painted in the genuine Lamborghini Diablo candy pearl orange, and the "Nuclear Gladiator" designed by Troy Lee is placed on the side to make up the distinctive design.

 The attractive exterior also features a Bomex front spoiler and side skirts, TRD-style hood, APR aluminum duplex rear wing, and Dazz Motorsport Racing Hart M5 Tuner 19-inch wheels.

 The stock 3-liter 6-cylinder engine (2JZ-GE) in the 80 Supra has been enlarged to 3.1 liters, and a single turbocharged Turbonetics T-66 ball bearing turbo has been bolted on for maximum output of over 700 HP (approximately 709 horsepower) to win in zero-yon.
