Vehicle Description

2003 Honda S2000 Roadster

The Honda S2000 is a roadster manufactured by the Japanese automaker Honda Motor Company. It was launched in April 1999 and was created to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary. The car was first shown as a concept at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1995, following which it was launched in world markets in 1999. The S2000 is named for its engine displacement of 2.0 Liters, carrying on in the tradition of the S500, S600, and S800 roadsters of the 1960s. Several revisions were made throughout the car's lifetime, including changes to the engine, gearbox, suspension and interior and exterior. Officially two model designations exist: the initial launch model was called the AP1, while the AP2 designation was given to the models produced from 2004 onwards which contained substantial changes to the drivetrain and suspension. Production of the S2000 ceased in June of 2009.

Exterior
Sedate Silverstone Metallic in good condition but not without its faults drapes this British inspired sports car. A few scuffs and scrapes are present and have been touched up, these are worn as badges of honor from prior hot laps and racing. A removable black fiberglass hardtop covers the cockpit and the factory soft top, while removed, is included with your purchase. Rounded bumpers, steel rockers, aluminum body panels and all the bulbous sporty design is all bathed in silver with only the emblems left to shine, although the factory finish does retain its shine. Tow hooks protrude through the front and rear bumpers and atop the short trunk lidresides a molded carbon fiber spoiler. 17-inch Enkei PF01 wheels are wrapped in Hoosier racing slicks and up front flush mount aerodynamic headlights are on tocreate an extremely menacing look and integrated rounded tail lights wrap around the rear quarters. Small but mighty with some slipstream design added in.

Interior
Smooth red leather covers the sleek door panels on the inside which are fitted with power window,power mirror toggles and a perforated black door pull. For the driver, we note a Sparco Sprint racing seat complete with a 6 point camlock harness. The passenger can rest theirposterior on the factory red leather bucket. This seat has exaggerated body hugging bolsters and a broad stitched insert pattern along with a openhalo mesh fitted headrest. Another racing harness is onfor the passenger. Not a fan of the racing seat? That's ok, as our consignor is including the factory red leather driver's seat. A red leather coveredconsole races forward to meet the dash and holds the short arm shifter,a roof dial switch, and a small storage area. The factory red leather shod dash meets up with the console presenting with a red leather flip down cover that reveals the factory stereo system and a trio of black face AutoMeter gauges to monitor engine vitals are mounted atop the dash. The factory cluster is set in front of the driver and retains the heat and AC dials, both of which are still functional. More weight savings are in order with the removal of the carpeting, allowing us to see the gray painted steel flooring that remains rust free. A Piper Motorsport SCCA time trial approved 6 point roll cage has been installed should you put this racer turtle, and we note a kill switch added to the driver's downbar of the roll cage.

Drivetrain
A screaming red and silver zonker resides in the long but narrow engine bay. This mill specs out as a 2.0 liter DOHC 4-cylinder twin cam engine is fed by EFI capable of making 240hp. Thatpeak number is achieved at abuzzing 8,300rpm and the redline is a staggering 9,000rpm. An AEM cold air intake is on for a few extra ponies and mated to the back is a 6-speed manual transmission, and all run very smoothly. 4.10 gears are powering the limited slip rear axle.

Undercarriage
Slight surface rust is emerging from the suspension parts, but all is solid unibody construction with good floor pans, and rockers. CR track springs have been added to the front and rear independent coil sprung suspension, and should you want to go full send in the grip department our consignor is including JRI adjustable struts and PAC springs at no cost, a $5,000 value. We note the addition of a 30mm Whiteline front sway bar and custom exhaust with a test pipe in place of the catalytic converter is seen but is available. For stopping power Wilwood Track Day front disc brakes are on and in the rear we see factory disc brakes. Stainless steel lines and slotted rotors have been added to the brake system and have Hawk HP plus pads all the way around.

Drive-Ability
Thanks to my ever so slightly rotund build, fitting in this little sports car was a no go, so I enlisted the help of my ever so slightly less overweight partner in crime to man the wheel. After a comedy of errors watching him get strapped into the driver's seat the car started and immediately fell into a smooth but sinister idle. On our test track the car performed with the best of them, with cat on the carpet handling, blistering acceleration and stop on a dime and give change braking. All functions were working properly including the power windows, heat and even the AC. A race car with amenities, we truly are in Valhalla!

The advertising of the day preached "The product of 22 years of Formula 1 racing. You'll love it in a second" any I would say that statement is spot on. Fast, nimble, but sedate appearing at first glance, that is until you turn the key and you're warped into a racing dreamscape....wait, this isn't a dream. It's reality and waiting for you in the Hallowed Halls of our beloved Classic Auto Mall.
