Aside from that being an odd auction strategy, to put in an enormous bid with nearly a week left on the clock, that's a lot of money for a Civic, even one as rare and special as this one. In the U.S., that US$200,000 could also buy a Porsche 911 Turbo S, a Lamborghini Huracán, an Audi R8, a Bentley Continental GT, or even a McLaren 570. Or, if you really had your heart set on Honda, you could buy a new NSX and a new Civic Type R. And you could get both in the color you want.
But, none of those would be the very first of their kind in the United States. Plus, if the $200,000 bid goes through or expands, the money will go to a good cause - the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
