Finished in stunning vibrant Monte Carlo Blue Pearl (code B66P), this drop dead gorgeous two seat sports car boasts a deep vivacious shine and uniform finish. All panels are beautifully straight and there are no undue knocks or scrapes to spoil the beautiful lines. Close inspection reveals only minimal and tiny touched in stone chips to the front, barely worthy of mention. The electric hood operation is quick and effortless and only a miniscule nick to the outer layer interrupts an otherwise pristine roof. All trims section and S2000 badges are just as Honda intended and main dealer number plates are fitted. This exceptional example represents an original, unmolested and truly cherished car that has firmly cemented Honda’s repute for innovation and precision engineering.
A clean functional and beautifully finished interior as to be expected from Honda. The high grade luxury leather in Black (code A) remains in superb order with the figure hugging bolsters firm and unworn. Very faint lines to the leather on the driver’s seat outer bolsters are barely noticeable. The matching door cards are perfect and the black carpeting is fresh and unworn. The dashboard and fascia are clearly driver focused and the red start button hints towards the excitement in store! The digital head up display with race style tachometer and speedometer further enflames the senses and sets the pulse racing. Needless to say all functions and controls operate perfectly including the air conditioning and optional CD changer. Low slung, exciting and very addictive!
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Underneath the bonnet is a 2.0i VTEC racebred engine. This sophisticated VTEC system changes the timing and lift of the valves to combine good torque characteristics at low revs with high power at high revs. A power output of 240bhp at an almost unheard of 8300rpm and 208Nm of torque at 7500rpm allows a blistering 0-62 time of 6.2 seconds and top speed 150mph. The short shift 6-speed gearbox is impeccably precise and adds to the complete S2000 magic.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Factory standard 16in sports alloys are in pristine order with no scuffs or kerb damage whatsoever. Shod in Bridgestone Turanza 205/55 R16 and Bridgestone Potenza 225/50 R16 tyres front and rear respectively, all items have masses of tread remaining. The anti-lock braking system (ABS) features 300mm ventilated front discs and 280mm solid rear discs to offer sharp and assured stopping power to cope with the epic performance.
