First 2017 Honda Civic Type R Being Auctioned Off to Benefit Kids With Cancer
Bidding has already begun on Bring a Trailer.
A good car for a good cause. The first 2017 Honda Civic Type R, VIN number 01, is being auctioned off on Bring a Trailer—and once sold, Honda will donate the cash raised from the hot hatch's sale to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, to help kids afflicted with cancer.
The 306-horsepower, front-wheel-drive sports machine went up on the enthusiast-beloved auction site Wednesday. At the time of this writing, the listing has seven bids, and is currently sitting at $35,000.
"The Civic Type R has long been forbidden fruit for enthusiasts in the U.S., so we thought it would be fun to offer one lucky customer a shot at owning the first of its kind in America while benefitting the leading nonprofit solely dedicated to finding a cure for childhood brain tumors, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation," senior vice president of American Honda Autos, Jeff Conrad, said in a press release.
The auction ends on June 15th, so get your bid in now.
