HONDA S2000

The Honda S2000 is a two-seat, rear wheel-drive roadster that was manufactured from the years ranging between 2000 and 2009. It is composed of a high-performing, high-winding inline 4-cylinder engine, along with an excellently balanced chassis. Ever since the tiny S800, S600 and S500 models of the 1960s, the S2000 was the first sports car to be produced by the Honda Company.


The S2000 is a pure sports car that stands out due to its race-track ready suspension and simple cockpit comforts. It is stronger and more expensive than the Miata, but not as costly or luxurious as the SLK or Z4. In addition, its swift and responsive steering, a perfect 49/51 load distribution plus a slick 6-speed gearbox guaranteed lots of excitement for speed enthusiasts. Currently, the S2000 is renowned for their reasonable resale values and reliability. This article outlines some key features of the various S2000 versions that a buyer may look out for before purchasing:


The Earliest Honda S2000 Version
The first Honda S2000 was rolled out in the year 2000. This version had a 2-liter inline-(4) with maximum 9000rpm. Its 240hp meant that it squeezed out more horsepower/litre than its then counterparts. Despite the fact it displayed some remarkable handling capabilities when driven aggressively, it had some notable faults. For instance, it lacked a low-end torque, there were cases of a pernickety shifter and a low quality audio system.


The 2002, Honda S2000 Version
There were quite a number of alterations to the car during this year. The car's stereo system was improved, a glass rear window (fitted with a defogger) was fixed, and the short-throw shifter was evened out. More so, there some changes in design too: it was installed with tail-light rings, a brand new shift-knob and some touches of silver on the cockpit. Users had the option of choosing a light-weight aluminium hardtop, although it was a bit expensive.


The 2004, Honda S2000 Version
There were significant changes to the car during this year, that made it a more practicable option for day to day drivers. Its first 2.2 litre engine was assembled, and the company also included a shorter gearing on the 6-speed transmission's 4 lower gears. This made the S2000 more effective at low engine speeds. Furthermore, bigger 17 inch tyres were used (in place of the 16'') and a few changes in the car's suspension were made.


The 2008, Honda S2000 Version
The year 2008 also witnessed some new and momentous changes to the car. The Club Racer version was introduced during this year, and the cars also came with refined gauge clusters and major improvements in its top-speed stability.


The Most Modern Honda S2000
There were two models of the S2000 roadster manufactured for its farewell year (2009): the racetrack-based Club Racer (CR) and the standard version. Prominent hardware on the two models included an aggressive 2.2 litre-inline (4), which had an 8,200rpm redline connected to a short-throw 6-speed gearbox (manual). Its remarkable engine made use of Honda's lift system and valve variable timing, to derive 237 horsepower from only 2.2 litres. There were no S2000s manufactured with automatic transmission.


There were a few additions to the subsequent productions. These included lighter 17-inch wheels, keyless entry, stability control, a CD audio system with 8 speakers, leather seats, AC system and an automated top with a glass rear window and HID headlights. For the standard car, there was the option of a lighter aluminium hardtop for drivers that weighed 44 pounds. On the other hand, the Club Racer model had its power top, stereo and AC removed for the purposes of reducing weight. It was enhanced by a removable hard-top, suspension settings which are track oriented, an improved make-up for better rigidity and better aero-dynamic bodywork.


In summary, any Honda S2000 for sale should entice any speed and drive enthusiast. Their chassis are finely balanced, have swift and responsive steering and a ready to rev engine that makes little work of meandering roads. The original 2.0 litre engine is more exhilarating for drivers who would not hesitate taking their car engines to redline time after time. Its only shortcoming is its tail-happy and edgy nature, but Honda rectifies this in the 2004 version. Even with all the above high-performance system potentials, this car still keeps hold of strong Honda characteristics such as supportive and adjustable seats that are able to accommodate drivers of any physique, as well as comfortable and outstanding interior accessories.
