The first Honda NSX Type S will be auctioned for charity – Yahoo Eurosport UK

The first Honda NSX Type S will go under the hammer next week to raise money for youth education charities in the US.
Badged Acura NSX in America, the new model is a last hurrah for the hybrid supercar, bringing extra performance from the 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine and triple electric motor powertrain.
Just 350 examples will be built, and VIN#001 will be auctioned at Monterey Car Week in California on August 14. The winner of the auction will be able to customise their order to their own specification.
All proceeds from the sale will go to charity, including a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) education program for underserved children in America, which is in partnership with the Center of Science and Industry.
The money from the winning bidder will be used to buy over 20,000 COSI Learning Lunchbox STEAM kits, which are delivered by local community organisations to at-risk and in-need students across the country.
The kits are designed to bridge the education gap for underserved children by increasing engagement, and will be focused on communities where Honda and Acura develop and manufacture products, including Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio and South Carolina.
Jon Ikeda, vice-president and Acura brand officer, said: “Acura is proud to help inspire America’s next-generation of designers, engineers and manufacturers through the expansion of STEAM education in underserved communities.
“We hope to help them discover the possibilities of their own futures, especially those students who have not had sufficient access to these types of programs due to Covid and other socio-economic factors.”
This is not the first time an NSX has been auctioned for charity. In 2016, the first production version of the then-new supercar fetched $1.2 million through the Barrett-Jackson auction house, with all proceeds going to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has denied that he had any influence on Barcelona's decision to allow Lionel Messi to leave the club. Messi had been set to stay at Barca after agreeing a 50% reduction in salary, only for a dramatic U-turn to occur last Thursday, resulting in the Argentine forward joining French side Paris St Germain on a free transfer on Tuesday. Barcelona president Joan Laporta blamed the decision on La Liga's stringent Financial Fair Play (FFP) controls.

PARIS (Reuters) -Lionel Messi dashed any thoughts of him taking it easy in his later years as he set his sights on leading new club Paris St Germain to their first ever Champions League title at his presentation in France on Wednesday. The Argentine forward, 34, had agreed to stay at former club Barcelona after his deal expired at the end of June, only for the Spanish club to admit they could no longer afford him last week. PSG have hoovered up domestic titles since the investment of their deep-pocketed owners Qatar Sports Investment in 2011.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) -The Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) has labelled the government of South Australia "cruel and uncaring" for imposing an extra two-week quarantine for athletes returning via Sydney from the Tokyo Games, meaning a 28 days of quarantine in total. The additional quarantine requirement for athletes currently isolating in Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, comes on top of the two weeks mandated for all arrivals from overseas. "Due to the high risk of the Delta strain of COVID-19 in NSW, anyone travelling from New South Wales must undertake 14 days quarantine upon entry into South Australia," the state said in a statement.
