As one of the most prominent car dealers in the Nation, our friend John Staluppi has an amazing inventory. After getting his start at a Chevrolet dealer, he had the foresight to begin importing Japanese cars. His empire now consists of the 3rd largest privately-owned dealer group in the U.S. That is how he was able to place the winning bid on the first production Supra. And in a press release earlier today, we learned that the 2020 Toyota Supra #1 was delivered to John Staluppi.
Earlier this year, we watched him outbid everyone else at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale. The hammer fell at $2.1 Million, with proceeds going to charity. It is probably en-route to his Cars of Dreams Museum in North Palm Beach, Florida.
It will arrive wearing a VIN ending in 20201 to signify the first production car. Also included is a racing suit, valve cover, and photo signed by Akio Toyoda. Congratulations John, from all of us at the duPont REGISTRY.
