Charity Civic Type R, Image: Bring A Trailer

The very first Honda Civic Type R is being made available to U.S. buyers via auction, and it’s probably going to go for a small fortune. While my sensible side wants to urge you to save your money and wait for the second or even third Type R to hit our shores, the premium you’re paying to be numero uno is going to a good cause. Honda donated the Civic to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and all the proceeds will go to the charity.

That gives you the right to install the most obnoxiously loud exhaust system legally allowed and rev up that homely hot rod in your driveway day and night. If your neighbors complain, you can tell them that your car helped save the lives of children before asking them what their CR-V has done for the world. 

Based on spy shots from CivicX, the Type R’s pre-destination base price is expected to be $33,900. However, the charity Honda has already eclipsed that number.

At present, the current bid is $47,500 and it has a full week in which to further swell. After the auction ends, the winning bidder can have the vehicle shipped to their local Honda dealer. The final selling price of the Type R, plus the usual five-percent auction fee for Bring A Trailer, will be collectively donated to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
