Here Are Some Cars You Can Get For The Price Of One (1) 1997 Acura Integra Type R

Y’all. I’m sick of seeing the frankly disgusting prices that some of the cars go for on the Bring A Trailer. Like this Honda Civic. And this Honda Civic, too. And also for this 1997 Acura Integra Type R, which just sold for $40,750. This is out of control.

And! As an additional fun note, this Integra isn’t even in, like, mint condition. The listing says it has 58,294 miles on the clock, which means it’s definitely been driven, despite its one-owner status.

I’m not knocking the Integra Type R, by the way—this one or any other one. I’m sure it drives great and will bring its new owner much happiness and joy like it’s supposed to.

See? Look at all the brand-new cars that you could have gotten for under $40,000. For some of these, you could have bought a car and then saved thousands of dollars as well.

But, of course, buying a car is a highly subjective experience. To each their own. Just know that there are options out there.
