If you own a Honda Civic Type R and are looking for some spare parts, we may have found just the vehicle for you.

The white 2019 Civic Type R pictured is currently up for sale on Copart after being wrecked in a crash and given a salvage title. The damage sustained to the car is quite extensive but that doesn’t mean money can’t be made from buying the car and selling off some of the parts. Similarly, a grey Civic Type R is also for sale and while it has sustained more damage, some of its parts are also recoverable.

Damage has been sustained to both the front and rear of the white car but importantly, the front-end doesn’t appear to be in particularly bad shape as the crash structure didn’t take much of a hit. As such, there’s a very good chance that the car’s punchy 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine continues to run. It’s likely that the superb six-speed manual transmission has also avoided damage.

Most of the damage is centered on the rear where one of the taillights is missing and the bumper has been crumpled. The two rear wheel arches have also been torn off and the driver’s side rear quarter panel and rear door have also been badly damaged.

The listing reveals that the car was crashed with just 6,108 miles on the clock. With the exception of the airbags being deployed, the interior looks to be in good condition and certain parts could easily be sold for a tidy profit.

Update – it appears the first Type R was sold by the time we published the article

The Polestar 2 is already benefiting from the advantages of over-the-air (OTA) updates, and now so does the XC40, which is based on the same CMA platform, as Volvo will soon start rolling out its first software update for the Recharge model.

Available for customers in Europe, the novelties that come with the latest software update are very similar to those brought to the Polestar 2, as they increase charging speed and improve the range of Volvo’s first fully electric vehicle.

It also comprises of a new base software for the main electronic system, enhances Bluetooth connectivity, climate timers, 360-degree camera system and digital owner’s manual. Last but not least, the OTA also updates the Android Automotive OS that powers the infotainment system.

Review: Driving A 2019 Volvo XC40 For Almost A Year Had Its Ups And Downs

“The benefits of over-the-air updates are obvious. Yesterday, you still had to drive to the workshop to get the latest updates to your car; today, you simply click OK and your electric Volvo takes care of the rest. It couldn’t be easier”, said the car manufacturer’s chief technology officer Henrik Green.

Unveiled in the last quarter of 2019, the XC40 Recharge entered production one year later, prior to its arrival in the United States and Canada shortly after with an MSRP of $53,990 and CA$64,950 (US$51,860) respectively, excluding the federal tax credit.

The XC40 Recharge has two electric motors that generate a combined 402 HP and 486 lb-ft (659 Nm) of torque and are powered by a 78 kWh battery. From rest to 60 mph (0-96 km/h), the electric SUV needs less than 5 seconds, and it has an EPA range of 208 miles (335 km).

 

Ford filed a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the name “Flexbed”.

Unfortunately, there aren’t many details, but the application does state that it will be for a “customizable and organizational system for cargo area of vehicles.”

Carbuzz, which discovered the application, suggests that it might not be Ford’s answer to with GM’s multi-function tailgate which splits and folds to turn itself into a step when down, as well as a workbench and other useful things. Instead, the Flexbed may offer some kind of dividers for the bed that could help owners organize their cargo more easily.

With little else to go on, that’s a fair guess. Another Ford patent that found its way into the news in October was named “Electrified vehicles with a removable and interchangeable range-extending generators” and concerned a gasoline range extender in the bed of an electric pickup truck.

The range extender would look like a bed-mounted toolbox to any onlookers and would therefore not ruin the look of the truck or take up much room in the bed. The range extender could be used on work sites or far from the grid, giving an electric truck, most probably the EV version of the F-150, more flexibility.
