O Honda-Civic no presentations. It’s been around since 1973 and is one of the best-selling models of all time, with over 18 million produced.
So it is a kind of cult car for Japanese car fans. And for those, the copy that we bring you here is very special and can be worth a lot of money.
This is a sixth-generation Honda Civic SiR (EK4), Japanese, with only 26 kilometers on the clock.
It still has the factory plastics on the seats and is in totally immaculate condition, to the point that it looks like the usual preparations for the support before delivery to the customer have not even been made.
For reasons that have not been revealed, this Honda Civic has been in storage since its registration in 1996 and is in the same condition as when it left the factory. Even the rear seat headrests were never installed.
This Civic SiR is fitted with a 1.6 VTEC four-cylinder engine – 170bhp and 156Nm in Japanese spec – and ended up in the hands of José Alvarez, owner of Vistec R Imports, a dealership based in Connecticut (States States) specializing in Japanese cars. .
Alvarez won’t reveal how much he paid for this Civic, but according to the publication The readerwhich echoes this story, this model was purchased from the “buy now” section of a Japanese auction house.
On the aforementioned auction house’s website, the car came with a description that it was still stored in a garage, which helps explain the immaculate condition of the paintwork and plastics.
In a post published on the Instagram account of Imports Vistec RJosé Alvarez specifies that this Civic “is not for sale”, but also indicates that “offers in the six-figure range (i.e. 100,000 dollars – approximately 98,940 euros – or more) will be studied”.
It is important to remember that this amount would be enough to buy, for example, two Honda Civic Type R (FK8) on the second-hand market. But as José Alvarez reminds us, quoted by The reader, it could be the Civic SiR with the lowest mileage in the world. And that alone helps to justify this fortune.
