Product Overview

Honda S2000 AP1 is a subcompact convertible in production from 1999 to 2004, whereupon it received a facelift. It was powered by a single naturally-aspirated inline-4 engine that displaced 2.0 liters paired to a 6-speed manual transmission.
One of the purest affordable open-top sports cars, the S2000 has proven itself to be highly reliable and fun to drive. While its production ended just over a decade ago, the S2000 has become a modern classic.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Honda S2000 comes with double-wishbone suspensions at all four corners. This provides the good cornering performance and durability.
