You read correctly. This year at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, you could be the lucky winner of an all-new 2020 Toyota Supra where auction bids will go to charity. This sporty coupe is the talk of the town as it will be the first new Supra offered in the U.S. in the past two decades.

What we Know About the Toyota Supra So Far

We've been hearing talk of the all-new Supra since the summer of 2016 when Toyota announced its partnership with BMW for the project. While its specs are mostly still rumors, at this point we have some idea of what to expect from design and capability of Toyota's new coupe:

  • The Design of an FT (future Toyota): with a sleek, aerodynamic and chiseled body.

  • Speed & Power: The Supra is expected to include an eight-speed automatic transmission and could reach up to 335 horsepower.

  • Interior Mimics Track Cars: Expect a black and red-accented interior with minimal cabin distractions and most controls embedded in the steering wheel.

  • First Full Release: Despite "leaked" pictures of the Supra in warehouses, the actual debut is set to happen this January 14 at the Detroit Motor Show.

How Can You Get Your Hands on a New Toyota Supra?

Even with the release so close on the horizon, don't expect to see the new Toyota Supra at Toyota Carlsbad or any other local dealer anytime soon. Toyota is releasing the car in small production batches and some drivers have had their names on waiting lists for weeks.

If you trust your luck, however, and you're serious about getting ahead of the curve, you might be interested in putting your bid in at the Barrett-Jackson Auction on January 19th in the new year. The event lasts for 8 days and proceeds from the auction will benefit the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation for veterans. And of course, the winner will be the first person in the U.S. to get their own Toyota Supra--and full bragging rights.
