The 2003 Honda S2000 is an instant classic. After all, a precision-built droptop sports car with a wonderful engine and sharp handling is a recipe that we know will always be in demand. So to find a low mileage example in such a well-preserved original condition is a true treat.
Nothing else looked like the S2000 when it debuted, and today, this modern classic still holds huge distinction. The long hood and sharp creases gives this the steely gaze of a shark on the hunt. The crisp look is all part of a car built with precision (these came from the same factory as the small-batch NSX.) It also helps that the factory original Sebring Silver has been treated with great care, so you get an awesome shine on this sunshine-friendly convertible. That's what you get with a car that has been babied correctly and has averaged less than 1,700 miles annually. The factory alloys are clean; the headlights are clear; and everything has the feel of quality. This has been well-respected from day one.
The interior is a pure driver-focused environment. You get terrifically-bolstered leather bucket seats, a grippy sports steering wheel, and a gearstick right where you want your right hand to be. The gauges are a digital masterpiece of clear and necessary info. It's motorcycle-like in the way it keeps you constantly in-tune with the speed and revs (and the very motorcycle-like 9,000 RPM redline!) And Honda really went the extra mile to make this driver-focused. That's why there is a flip-up panel to hide the AM/FM/CD stereo unit (to reduce light/distraction) and instead you can control it from a finger tip's reach of the steering wheel. And just below that is the big red engine start button. Even if you want to attack every back road with this one, there's also a passenger seat so you can share the experience. And this modern classic has a ton of features to keep you both happy, like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual front airbags, and side airbags. The top powers down with the flip of a switch. Plus, the cold-blowing air conditioning means you get to stay comfortable when open to the world, even in the summertime.
Honda's famous red cylinder head makes a bold look in the engine bay. You can instantly see more of this car's respected life by the extra clean presentation. While you have a long hood, the motor is set far back so it's behind the front axle for a terrific weight distribution (and true enthusiasts will mention that when you lift the hood at car shows.) It's not only the placement of the motor, but also what it does. This high-revving 2.0-liter is the original numbers-matching powerplant. It produces 240 horsepower, which is an amazing feat considering there's no turbocharger. It makes for a wonderful power package that's built for performance confidence at all times. The same goes for the crisp six-speed manual transmission. The strong chassis, fully-independent sports suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS are all part of well-engineered symphony of speed. They combine with the mid-engine's low center of gravity to deliver one of the best roadster feelings ever put to the road.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a well-preserved modern icon. So while the mileage is low, we know you won't be able to resist adding to the odometer on the back roads. Call today!!!
