What’s the retail on one of those, we hear you cry? Well, considerably more than the actual retail. Ladies and gentlemen, the very, very first brand-new Toyota Supra—that’s the A90 one you might not have heard about—has just sold at auction. For $2.1 million (P110.8 million).

Still. $2.1 million...
