Are you in the market for a 2018 Honda Civic Type R and would rather not pay upwards of $34,700 for it? Well then, you better hope a nice pre-owned model is available somewhere, because this one here is all messed up.
Then again, if you’d like to strip one for parts, bidding on this heavily damaged model that’s being auctioned off by Copart, makes (some) sense. According to the ad, the car suffered a rollover crash, although the roof is in pretty good shape, unlike everything else.
To be fair, the rear end isn’t technically all that bent out of shape, but the sides certainly are, and so is the front fascia – which could mean there’s powertrain damage, although the ad doesn’t specify. Then there’s the interior, where the curtain airbags were deployed on both sides.
The car is currently present at a lot in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and its retail value has been estimated at $37,935 CAD. Of course, the days in which this Type R could warrant anywhere near that much are long gone.
When it was new, which we suspect wasn’t that long ago, this Japanese hot hatch could get you from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in well under 6 seconds and it’s all thanks to a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit, producing 306 HP (310 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque, with everything going to the front axle.
