A freshly delivered 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition has hit the used car market in the U.S. and, with six days to go until the auction ends, has already attracted a highest bid beyond its $44,950 MSRP.
Honda is producing just 600 examples of the Civic Type R Limited Edition for the U.S. market and this car, which is being sold through Bring a Trailer, is #003. It has only been driven 40 miles and is being sold in Florida with manufacturer’s literature, a window sticker, a clean Carfax report, and a clean North Carolina title.
All Civic Type R Limited Edition models come painted in Phoenix Yellow and also benefit from lightweight 20-inch BBS forged wheels that are wrapped in 245/30 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
Compared to a standard Civic Type R, the Limited Edition features a specially tuned suspension with stiffer springs, bushings, and anti-roll bars. The steering has also been recalibrated, making it even more enjoyable to drive. Braking is provided by Brembo calipers, including four-piston ones at the front.
As for the interior, it includes sports seats clad in red cloth with black accents that still feature the original plastic covers. Honda removed things like the rear wiper, rear cargo cover, rear heat ducts, as well as some of the hot hatch’s sound deadening to help save weight. The car continues to feature dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, cruise control, push-button ignition, an aluminum shift knob, an infotainment system with navigation and smartphone compatibility and a 12-speaker sound system.
