The collector car market is a strange one. Porsche 911 prices have gone well beyond what most rational buyers are willing to pay, while prices for 60-horsepower Kei cars are steadily on the rise. One point of interest, though, stands out among the rest. It's this pristine 2000 Honda Civic Si coupe, which for $22,750. That is not a typo.
Of course, this example is perhaps one of the nicest sixth-generation Civic Sis on the planet, having traveled just 10,439 miles since new, remaining unmodified its entire life. The paint is said to be original, and the pictures depict a car that seems to have just rolled off the showroom floor. For some context, you can purchase a brand new Honda Civic Si coupe for just $1350 more.
Bring--a-Trailer is known for drawing in high-quality, high-dollar auctions, but this result is pretty shocking, even by BaT standards. It could perhaps be the market for these cars is actually starting to turn upwards, however. It makes sense considering the generation that grew up with these cars new is finally coming into some money.
It doesn't make that sell price any less painful to look at, though.
