The legendary Honda Civic Type-R is back, and for the first time ever, it’s available in the United States. With over 300 horsepower under the hood and a fastest lap time set, the Civic Type-R is an incredible piece of engineering. However, the way Honda is introducing the model to the States is even better: the first 2017 Honda Civic Type-R is being auctioned off for charity.
Seeing as the all-new Civic Type-R is groundbreaking in more ways than one, auto enthusiasts across the States are excited to get behind the wheel. A legendary car deserves a legendary launch, and what better way to mark the occasion with a donation to charitable cause?
The #1 U.S. model will be auctioned off to the highest bidder, with all proceeds donated to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. At the time of writing, the charity has just reached over $200,000 (a normal 2017 Civic Type-R has an MSRP of $35,000).
We at Love Honda are so happy to see so much money going to such a great cause, and we’re excited for the Civic Type-R to make its U.S. debut. Are you interested in purchasing one for yourself? Send us a message here!
