The new 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition is on its way, and you can win the first one imported to the U.S. This Type R, sporting serial plate 001, is being awarded on the fundraising platform Omaze through a donation to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, a charity that supports historically Black colleges and universities (HBCU).
Winning this Type R Limited Edition also means that you get a track driving experience in it with Honda’s IndyCar driver, Colton Herta, and then you can drive it home. This limited-edition Type R, sporting a Phoenix Yellow paint job, will be the first of 600 examples scheduled to reach the U.S.
“Historically Black colleges and universities have been greatly impacted by COVID-19, and many of our students don’t have a safety net,” Harry L. Williams, president and CEO of the Marshall fund, said in a release. “This initiative to give away a Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition will help us continue to provide much-needed assistance to our students and schools.”
The 2021 Civic Type R Limited Edition was unveiled in February. This version of the Type R sheds 46 pounds through different wheels and a lack of rear heating ducts, rear wiper blade, among other miscellaneous items. The lighter, aluminum BBS wheels are wrapped exclusively with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 rubber, and the suspension and steering have also been uniquely tuned in the Type R Limited Edition.
The Type R, along with the Limited Edition, is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque; that power reaches those summer tires by the way of a six-speed manual transmission. The 2021 Civic Type R starts at $38,450 and the Type R Limited Edition starts at $44,950.
