Wait just a second, 1.1 for the GT500 and 2.1 for the Supra? Just for it being the first (which usually means trouble)? I do like how Supra looks, but really?

Man, the Shelby suddenly feels "cheap" to me.

Both cars ended up at $3.52 million when you tack on the Buyer's Premium fees. What's a bit amusing is that Mr. Jackson himself bought both cars; imagining the amount of money he makes from this 7-day auction, probably helped cover his donation to the charities in exchange for both cars. :P

Surprised you didn't include the '19 GT Heritage VIN 001 as well Joey. $2.75 million all in to another well known bidder, Rick Hendrick.

The Ford GT is so 2017. Besides, Shmee has one - and although he's ordered a Supra, he doesn't have one yet, so we can still talk about it.

Shmee has a Supra? I’m betting his thumbnail will be him giving thumbs up in front of the car.

3.2 mil for cars that will be worth around 100k! I need that kind of money :(

They wont sale for 100K so no they wont be worth that amount. Also again most people seem to not understand that this is for charity and when you get a bunch of rich people and a yearly broadcast auction, they tend to spend a lot. This has been the story for the past 10 years every time a high profile new sports car is released.
