The first production 2017 Honda Civic Type-R with VIN 01 will be auctioned off for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. Philanthropic speed-freaks can bid on the hot hatch free of hedonistic conscious as the Civic was donated to the foundation so 100% of its resulting proceeds will help fund research regarding pediatric brain tumors. The auction is fulfilled by Bring a Trailer, a site that specializes in rare, odd, or vintage cars (not necessarily including classic American cars) in North America and sometimes the UK. However, unlike usual winners on BaT, Honda will be shipping the Civic to any Honda dealership of the winner's choice free of charge once the auction is complete.

The auction closes on June 15, 2017 - long before it's released in the U.S. market. Remarkably, 24 hours after the listing began its price had already reached $200,000. Good cause for a good car.
