There’s “super rare,” and then there’s “so freakin’ rare, you’re the only person in Miami to own one.” That’s essentially what Honda is giving away through their Omaze lottery/contest, in which one mega-lucky winner will receive the very first US production model of the 2021 Civic Type R Limited Edition, complete with a Phoenix Yellow exterior and #001 serial plate.
Boy, are we excited. Not only is it a free sports car; it’s one of the best sports cars, having broken the Suzuka Circuit track record at 2:23.993! The same genes that run through this 2021 Type R model were coursing through the 2017 version’s veins when it smashed Nürburgring’s lap record, posting a ridiculous 7:43.8 time — and that’s all pretty cool.
In total, 600 new Civic Type R models will find their way to the US market; but if you win, you’ll be the O.G. — which is even cooler. Read the contest rules and enter by February 19, 2021, for your chance to own this amazing sports car in Miami.
What You Get
2021 Civic Type R Limited Edition
The Grand Prize is, of course, the coveted yellow ‘21 Civic Type R Limited Edition model. It’s delivered for free — that means all US sales tax, shipping and registration fees are already paid — with a standard Honda warranty and a bunch of snazzy “also has” features, like:
2.0L VTEC Turbo-four
Intercooled. Turbocharged. Iconic red cover. The 2.0-liter VTEC engine is a marvel that forces out 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, making it track-ready at the drop of a hat.
Molded to the rear window hatch, these vortex generators channel air toward the spoiler, enhancing cornering ability and providing more stability at-speed.
Front Fender Vents
In partnership with the car’s scooped hood, the front fender’s vents provide additional engine cooling organically.
Forged with a Mandalorian Beskar-equivalent aluminum material, Limited Edition Type R BBS wheels are lightweight yet rigid, offering a unique blend of agility, speed and durability. They’re paired with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 high-performance tires to really give you maximum control and road-to-palm feedback.
Red & Black Sport Seats
High-bolstered sport seats are wrapped in red and black, suede-like fabric and lusciously stitched with great attention to detail. Their bucketed shape keeps you in place, even when cornering at 1.21 Gs.
Log all your data — lap times, oil temperatures, oil pressure, etc. — without bringing a notebook or having a spotter at the finish line. With Civic Type R’s LogR system, all that important data can be saved or viewed in real time.
Customizable Digital Info Cluster
Keep track of all that extra real-time data, like boost pressure, lap time, rev limits, throttle and brake input, and even G-forces, from the driver information interface.
3-Mode Drive System
Leisurely drive around Miami Beach? Pop that sucker into Comfort mode. Engaging in some racetrack carnage, minus the carnage? Engage Sport or +R mode to maximize your driving experience. With the 3-Mode Drive System, you can automatically push your Civic Type R to retune its suspension, adjust throttle response and optimize steering settings for any type of road.
Alcantara™ Steering Wheel
The flat-bottomed Civic Type R steering wheel gets the celebrity treatment with standard Alcantara wrapping and premium-grade stitching. It’s the perfect complement to the car’s weighted shifting knob.
As is the case with all new Hondas, the 2021 Civic Type R comes standard with Honda Sensing, which includes Collision Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, and Auto High-Beams.
Driving Night with a Racing Expert
Additionally, the winner will be treated to an exclusive driving night with race car driver Colton Herta (airfare and hotel included). See what your Type R is capable of on a custom-designed racetrack, with an expert in the passenger seat to guide you.
Fundraising for TMCF
Perhaps best of all, entry proceeds will support the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, which is the nation’s largest organization exclusively representing the Black College Community. Through scholarships, public initiatives, innovative programs and strategic partnerships, the TMCF provides the necessary resources for K-12 students, families and employers to succeed. So, your money is going toward a good cause, even if you don’t win the luscious Honda Civic.
