Minato, Tokyo, Japan - The Honda Civic Type R first hit the ground in the U.S. in 2017, and has continued to impress and turn the heads of enthusiasts with its combination of powerful performance and civilized driving manners.

Honda has teamed with online fundraising platform Omaze to offer an exclusive prize package for driving enthusiasts in North America, featuring the 2021 Civic Type R Limited Edition. Starting today, fans can enter for their chance to win the very first 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition for the U.S., Serial Plate 001. In addition to driving home the Type R Limited Edition, the randomly drawn winner will also receive a once-in-a-lifetime driving experience on the track with Honda IndyCar driver, Colton Herta. Donations support Honda's partner, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), which supports 47 public Historically Black Colleges and Universities, medical schools, and law schools and is the nation's largest organization exclusively representing the Black College Community.

Honda has supported the success and dreams of students at America's Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) for more than three decades. Earlier this year, Honda provided emergency relief funds to HBCUs to support their local communities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Honda also supports HBCU students through initiatives like the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge and Honda Battle of the Bands.

To further support HBCUs, Honda chose the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), named for the late Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, as the recipient of funds raised through the Omaze sweepstakes. Honda partners annually with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to provide scholarship funding to HBCU students pursuing an education in engineering, supply chain management and manufacturing-related fields.

Honda offers a full line of clean, safe, fun and connected vehicles sold through more than 1,000 independent U.S. Honda dealers. Honda has the highest fleet average fuel economy and lowest CO2 emissions of any major full-line automaker in America, according to the latest data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The Honda lineup includes the Fit, Civic, Insight Accord and Clarity series passenger cars, along with the HR-V, CR-V, Passport and Pilot sport utility vehicles, the Ridgeline pickup and the Odyssey minivan. Honda's electrified vehicle lineup includes the Accord Hybrid, CR-V Hybrid, Insight hybrid-electric sedan, and the Clarity Fuel Cell and Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.

Honda has been producing automobiles in America for 38 years and currently operates 19 major manufacturing facilities in North America. In 2019, more than 90 percent of all Honda vehicles sold in the U.S. were made in North America, using domestic and globally sourced parts.
