It’s unclear if model Jessica Barton had any security for her super custom 1,165 hp Supra.

But it’s not uncommon for many even super high-profile car enthusiasts to skimp on, say, a car alarm or security system in favor of some performance-related aftermarket product for their ride.

However, if you’re spending thousands, if not tens of thousands on your vehicle, then paying a little more for peace of mind seems like a small price to pay.

Barton spent years putting together her ride and unfortunately thieves completely disassembled it for the parts.

The speedy swimsuit model had offered a $5,000 reward to anyone who helped her find the vehicle — but later sent out an Instagram post saying that it was too late and showing a pic of Supra parts piled up in a lot.

“That car has been evolving over 8 years and hundreds of thousands probably invested in it,” Barton said in a comment on the Instagram post.

“I could never just build another one. It’s imposible (sic) to do all this again. It’s a devastating loss to me,” she said.
