The First 2017 Honda Civic Type R Unit Was Sold For $200,000
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is one of the most extensive new release cars of this year. This generation of Honda Civic also signs the first time that any product from the automaker will be sold in the United States with the fabled Type-R brand. The auction for the first-ever production of the 2017 Civic Type-R was wrapped up selling for a majestic $200,000 worth.
2017 Honda Civic Type R is really worth the wait since it really stands out compared to other flagship vehicles. According to The Drive, the car has a 2.0-liter turbo cylinder engine, which makes 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Through its front wheels, the Honda Civic Type R was able to lay down a 7:43.8 of Nurburgring lap time.
Some may wonder if Honda Civic Type R is worth the price and if $200,000 is deserving for a supercar like this. That is exactly what Honda want to emphasize with regards to the car's value. The newest Civic model was sold for the price of $200,000 because it was for a charity auction.
As reported by CNET, the charity auction of this first ever unit of the Honda Civic Type R has been organized between the automaker itself, Bring A Trailer and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. For the sake of helping the needy. Bring A Trailer even comes before their usual five percent cut-off on the auction's winning bid in order to donate the money. The winner of the auction will have the car shipped to the nearest Honda dealer and this is courtesy of Honda themselves.
This newest Honda car is destined to become a pedestal queen, as many high-dollar vehicles often do. And those people who are unable to afford the $200,000 price tag for a specific car type just like the Honda Civic Type R, do not worry, we can still stare at the car's unit while it is being displayed, as well as its Nurburgring lap.
