Each Barrett-Jackson auction is not only a haven for automobile enthusiasts but also a playground for those seeking adrenaline-fueled excitement. Amidst the display of collector vehicles, one experience stands out ‒Toyota Thrill Rides. This exhilarating opportunity puts guests in the passenger seat of the iconic Toyota GR Supra and elevates the heart rate of attendees as they buckle up for an unforgettable adventure.
Toyota has been offering Thrill Rides on the Barrett-Jackson Performance Track since the $2.1-million sale of the all-new VIN 001 2020 Toyota Supra during the 2019 Scottsdale Auction, with 100 percent of the hammer price benefiting the American Heart Association.
During the inaugural New Orleans Auction, September 28-30 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Thrill Rides are included with auction admission. Once buckled into the Supra, the engine roars to life, filling the air with an electrifying symphony of power. Professional drivers, skilled in navigating every twist and turn, take the wheel, ensuring participants riding shotgun experience the full potential of Toyota’s cutting-edge technology and engineering prowess.
The course comes alive as the vehicles zip through hairpin bends, navigate tight corners and accelerate down straightaways. Each heart-stopping maneuver showcases the precision and agility for which the Supra is known. The GR Supra Thrill Rides provide a unique opportunity to witness the capabilities of these remarkable machines in the hands of skilled drivers, leaving passengers with an appreciation for the vehicle’s craftsmanship and capabilities.
For attendees at the New Orleans Auction, the Toyota Thrill Ride is not only a different experience from the action in the auction arena but also an embodiment of the automotive industry’s relentless pursuit of excellence. It showcases the enduring spirit of innovation and performance that drives both Toyota and the auction itself.
Toyota Thrill Rides are a must-try for any automotive enthusiast looking to feel the rush of speed and power.
