The first Honda Civic Type R in the U.S. has sold for $200,000, but luckily the money will go to charity.
Bidding for the first production 2017 Honda Civic Type R started last week on Bring a Trailer, and the sports car sold for a whopping $200,000. The vehicle was donated by Honda, so all the proceeds will go to benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. Now that the auction has ended, the first Civic Type R will be shipped to a participating U.S. Honda dealer for the new owner to pick up.
