Why Did Someone Pay $50,000 For This Honda Civic Si?

JDM / Comments

The Civic that time forgot.

The sixth-generation Honda Civic Si is one of the most beloved classic Japanese sports cars in the US today, and far from being cheap tuner cars, clean models are reaching ridiculous prices. One such car has reached an amazing $50,000 on auction. That's more than you'd pay for a brand new Civic Type R, and double the price of the new Civic Si.

The Electron Blue 2000 Civic Si you see before you was delivered new to Pompano Honda of Pompano Beach, Florida, and the seller acquired the car from its first owner in 2004. The incredible part: the car has done only 5,600 miles since new.

This Si features Honda's famous B16 1.6-liter four-cylinder Vtec engine which reaches 8,000 rpm when pushed to the limit. Power is sent to the front wheels via a five-speed transmission. Features on this model include air conditioning, a sunroof, and cruise control, as well as a Pioneer audio system.

According to the listing, this car was last serviced by its owner in 2017, and only a simple coolant and oil change were performed. The exterior features the factory 15-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin XGT V4 tires. Modifications include a coilover suspension, a front strut-tower brace and front, and stiffer rear swaybars.

The interior is immaculate and features gray cloth bucket seats, a factory steering wheel, and an S2000-like 9,500 rpm tachometer. Photos of the underbody reveals a car that looks as fresh as the day it left the factory, and the original exhaust system is still in place.

The car was sold with its original window sticker, partial service records, as well as an accident-free Carfax report and a clean Washington title. The original sticker price is $17,985 which goes to show that keeping your Honda Civic stock will pay off in the end. The photo gallery shows off the original window sticker and service records. With the new Civic Si more affordable than ever, we'd suggest scooping one up now and waiting for a large payoff in about 30 years.
