    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.

    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.
