According to her Instagram, Barton’s Supra was stolen last Wednesday from Waterford, Fla. The model said thieves swiped her car sometime between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. Wednesday after the new year.
Barton offered a $5,000 reward for the car saying its “parts were easily recognizable,” assuming the thief took the car apart. However, on Monday, Barton shared a photo of her Supra piled in pieces in a dirt parking lot.
"That car has been evolving over 8 years and hundreds of thousands probably invested in it," Barton wrote on Instagram. "I could never just build another one. It's impossible to do all this again. It's a devastating loss to me."
Fans of Barton and cars alike dedicated their time to help search for the Supra on Instagram, after the model filed several posts about her missing car.

The custom-built model with turbos and nitrous from 1994 was said to have his 1,160 hp on the dynamometer. At an annual Texas Mile meetup last year, Barton’s Supra beat Nissan GT-Rs and Lamborghinis when she hit a quarter mile in 8:64 seconds.
