The Honda S2000 was manufactured by Honda, from 1999 until 2009. First shown as a concept car called the SSM at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1995, the production version was launched in April 1999 to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary. The S2000 is named for its engine displacement of two liters, carrying on in the tradition of the S500, S600, and S800 roadsters of the 1960s. Officially two variants exist: the initial launch model was given the chassis code AP1; though cosmetically similar, the face lifted version, known as the AP2 in North America and Japan, incorporated significant changes to the drivetrain and suspension. Production of the S2000 ceased on August 19, 2009.
The Honda S2000 was notable for its exceptional specific power output of about 124HP per liter, or about 2 HP per cubic inch, the highest of any mass production, naturally aspirated engined car and has since become a legitimate modern classic car, having seen a significant appreciation in price for valued examples such as this example with extraordinarily low miles. In collector circles the most sought-after models are special edition productions such as the CR (Club Racer) in the USA market but the standard AP1 and AP2 models have achieved collectible status as well.
The 2004 model S2000 underwent several significant changes. Production moved to Suzuka. The new model introduced 17" wheels and Bridgestone RE-050 tires along with a retuned suspension to reduce oversteer. The subframe also received a revision in design to achieve high rigidity. In the gearbox the brass synchronizers were replaced with carbon fibre. In addition, cosmetic changes were made to the exterior with new front and rear bumpers, revised headlight assemblies, new LED tail-lights, and oval-tipped exhaust pipes. For the North American market, the updates also included the introduction of a larger version of the F20C (with a designation of F22C1); this larger engine gave the new model a chassis designation of AP2.
The S2000 has received much praise from critics and motoring journalists and has received numerous favorable reviews from such publications as Car and Driver etc which highlight the high output of the engine, the high redline, the balanced handling, and the smooth gearbox.
The S2000 was the Cabrio of the Year at 1999 Geneva International Motor Show where Honda held the roadster's world premiere.

This is an absolutely beautiful example, with the car obviously always being garaged with no accidents and no rust and a clean CARFAX report and boasting all its original factory accessories including spare wheel, jack and tools. The car has as new and all original 'Berlina Black' factory paint and the car has it's original factory Black leather interior which is also in as new and all original condition throughout.
