If you can call it used, the just 11,444 km has put the $ 90,000 in the auction house bringatrailer.com Supra on the clock. In the color red, beige leather and with original rims, the condition of the LHD 6-speed TwinTurbo Supra is of course in a dream state. They still exist - The Unicorns, which achieve record prices year after year.
About a year ago we wrote about awith even less driven kilometers, which had achieved a price of nearly $ 100,000. Already at that time the achieved maximum value for traffic jams and proud faces provided with owners, who could call a Supra his own.

Will the bubble eventually burst?
The currently sold red Supra has topped the price by almost 25%. For over $ 121,000, the red Supra has changed hands. An awesome sum for a Japanese vehicle with an age of 25 years. Of course, only the film vehicle from Fast & Furious scored a much higher auction price.

Are petrolheads like us a fringe? Will a vintage car be a priceless hobby in terms of insurance, as manual driving will be an incalculable risk for insurance companies?
How does it look like? Already today the youth are interested in completely different things than we were then and still are today.
