Purchase 2017 Honda Civic Type R VIN 01 for charity

The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is going to hit dealership places really soon. Honda is sending the first Type R (VIN 01) to auction with benefits for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

Don’t start packing your bags for trip to Scottsdale yet

But don’t start packing your bags for trip to Scottsdale yet. This auction will be all digital. Bringatrailer.com is host of this auction and it’s the first new production car that is available for buying on the site. The auction is begining today and it is open for registered bringatrailer.com accounts which are by U.S. residents 18 years of age or older. The winning biuyer is liable for paying all associated taxes, fees, transfer, titling and registration.

“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 benefiting the leading nonprofit solely dedicated to finding a cure for childhood brain tumors, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president, automobile division, American Honda Motor Co.

The Civic Type R makes 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque from its turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, powering the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission. The car certainly has the performance chops. Last October, the car set the front-wheel-drive Nürburgring lap record of 7 minutes, 43.8 seconds. The styling might be a too Fast ‘n’ Furious for some, but the Type R is setting itself up to be a real winner when compared to the competition.
