    • Looking for a sucker - Someone is trying to flip a Honda Civic Type R for $60k

      A Honda Civic Type for $34,775? Maybe if you are just really into Civics. For $60k? Maybe if you suffer from sort of mental disorder. Why some people think they can just flip any car for profit these days shows not only incredible greed but gullibility.


      Paying over sticker to get the first Ferrari 488 GTB or some rare exotic? Ok, fine, being first is part of the appeal. However, trying to get almost double the price for a Civic is just a joke.

      It is even worse than the guy who wanted $40k for his spot in the Dodge Demon line.

      If someone is stupid enough to pay huge markup on a Civic, frankly, they deserve the car.

        Yeahhhhhhhh about that... the new accords are coming with a de-tuned civic type r engine.

        "Honda hasn’t yet released specs for the new 2.0-liter turbo. Chief engineer Junji Yamano confirmed that it uses the same block as the 2.0-liter in the Civic Type R, but said much else about the engine is different—including the turbocharger hardware and its ability to run on regular gas."

        Taking a look at the current 4-cyl accords, most likely price point will be in the low to mid 20's. Good luck with 60k.

        I love me some hondas! I had like 4 of them.

        My buddy Carl had a 88 hf crx with a b20 lsv and ran high 11s all motor.

        They're great cars But I can't justify the starting price.
