Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the most expensive used Toyota listed on Autotrader. It's a 1995 Toyota Supra Turbo with a 6-speed manual transmission, a one-owner Carfax report, aftermarket wheels, a cool Toyota Racing Development license plate frame, a well-kept white exterior and 1,000 horsepower. That's right, a cool Toyota Racing Development license plate frame.

No, I'm just kidding. Obviously, the most exciting thing here is that this Supra has 1,000 hp, which surprisingly, isn't as uncommon as you might think for one of these. The Supra's turbocharged 6-cylinder engine can famously handle a lot of power, and there are Supras out there putting down more power than this one.

What's surprising about this particular Supra, however, is that it's a one-owner vehicle. In other words, someone ponied up $49,700 to own one of these back in 1995 (that's more than $75,000 in today's dollars), kept it for 21 years and decided to bring it to 1,000 hp somewhere along the way. By now, most 1,000-hp Supras are on their 37th owner, while most one-owner Supras sit under a plastic sheet in a climate-controlled garage.

More unusual is that this particular Supra is for sale at a Toyota dealership: Jerry Ackerman Toyota of St. Louis, Missouri, is offering it with 59,700 miles for a whopping $100,000. If you live in the St. Louis area, you can visit Jerry Ackerman Toyota to buy a 106-hp Yaris or a 1,000-hp Supra. This, folks, is impressive variation.

Is it worth a hundred grand? That'll be for potential buyers to decide. It's certainly a rare vehicle; one that'd cost a lot of money to make and a lot of self-control to not destroy.
