Toyota auctioned two of the first i-Force Max Tundras at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona, resulting in more than $1.2 million going to benefit the Toyota U.S. Paralympic Fund.
The Toyota Tundra Capstone with VIN 001 sold for $700,000. The Toyota TRD Pro with VIN 002 sold for $550,000.
The Toyota U.S. Paralympic Fund was launched by the company in an effort to further support Team USA’s Paralympic athletes as they pursue their sport dreams. To date, more than 430 U.S. Paralympic athletes and hopefuls have received direct support from the Fund, with contributions from across the country, including from Toyota dealerships. With proceeds from the Toyota auctions at Barrett-Jackson, the Toyota U.S. Paralympic Fund has now raised more than $4.9 million.
U.S. Paralympian Kaitlyn Verfuerth, who received support from the Toyota U.S. Paralympic Fund, joined Toyota on the auction block both nights.
Each winning bidder will also receive:
- A Toyota-hosted trip for two to Park City, Utah, for an exclusive program to cheer on the Team USA athletes who will be competing at the Paralympic Winter Games.
- A Tundra engine cover signed by chief engineer Mike Sweers.
- An exclusive framed print of the original Tundra styling sketches from Calty (Toyota’s North American design studio), signed by Calty president, Kevin Hunter, and Tundra exterior designers, Adam Rabinowitz and Chung Lee.
The auction-winning vehicles will not be immediately available and will be delivered in spring of 2022.
