The Honda S2000 is a funky 2-door roadster launched in 1999 to celebrate the Japanese automaker’s 50th anniversary. Several revision models have been made through its lifetime, with changes to the engine, gearbox, suspension, exterior and interior. It’s worth checking exactly what features are available when you search for a used model near you here at Motors.co.uk.
There are two official variants of the car, AP1 and AP2. The AP1 features a front-mid engine and rear-wheel drive, with features like electrically-assisted steering and integrated roll hoops. The AP2 introduced newly designed 17'' wheels and many cosmetic changes, while subsequent versions added multiple body colour choices, and took away some features and equipment as standard which were said to aid performance.
The car’s good looks and hugely impressive engine make it a really fun car to drive. It compares well to more expensive alternatives and offers superb handling. It has received much praise from critics and motoring journalists and won many favourable reviews in its time. They tend to pick out its high output engine, balanced handling and smooth gearbox as salient features.
Its cockpit is best described as snug, but the sports seats are well designed to make long journeys comfortable. There’s no glove-box and it has tiny door pockets, but you wouldn’t use this car to move house in anyway! The GT model comes with a removable aluminium hard top which makes the cabin warmer in winter and quieter in motion.
In terms of equipment, the later models are pretty sure to have driver and passenger airbags, leather steering wheel, heated glass rear screen and an alarm included. A CD player will also be available on most used Honda S2000 models, unless you come across a really old version with a cassette player.
While Honda stopped production of the S2000 in 2009, there are plenty of used versions on the market. To get yourself a great used deal on one of these popular roadsters, visit Motors.co.uk to find your perfect used Honda S2000.
