2002 Honda S2000 A Dream Buy With Just 496 Miles

A pristine 2002 Honda S2000 is currently looking for a new home in Massachusetts and looks like a Honda enthusiast’s dream car.

Despite being 15 years old, this S2000 has only had a single owner since being delivered and clocked up a mere 496 miles, inevitably making it one of the lowest mileage S2000s in the world.

The exterior of Honda’s iconic two-door sports car is painted in New Formula Red while the interior is covered in lovely black leather and plastic. Unsurprisingly, both the exterior and interior look brand new and even the engine is free of any dust, dirt or grime.

As this S2000 is the desirable AP1-generation, it is powered by a 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine with roughly 240 hp and 161 lb-ft of torque sent to the rear wheels. This powertrain also revs to an extraordinary 9,000 rpm and prior to the Ferrari 458 Italia coming along, had the highest specific output of any naturally-aspirated production engine in the world.

Given the immaculate condition of this example, the $37,995 asking price on eBay is understandable and only about $3,000 more than a new Civic Type R. We know which we’d prefer, what about you?

    Prices on clean s2ks have been on the rise the last couple years..fun cars to drive….

  • Honda NSX-R

    To me that’s actually a pretty good price for an S2000 with really low miles. I wouldn’t mind spending more money to get one like this. Honestly these are a better value than what you would get for an NSX in a similar condition 😛

      If anything, I would say this is undervalued based on recent pricing.

    I was really excited when this first came out but soon discovered that the non-movable steering wheel [Or did it just telescope – can’t remember] made it impossible for me to use the pedals. I was disappointed to say the least.

    I owned two, looking back, it isn’t worth it. Much better options out there for around the same price. The engines were weak and the weren’t stable at high speeds or around corners. Way too much bump steer and the chassis were too stiff. The middle console area also didn’t have enough installation and got hot, which really sucked in the summer… when you usually drove the thing. The best thing about it was the shifter. Very smooth shifts. I’ll take a 2014 Porsche Boxster S. It had 315 hp and a great 6 cylinder engine with loads of torque. A much nicer interior and you can find clean examples in the upper $30k’s.

    So much fun was missed, for NOT driving it.

    Such a cool car.

    A low milage car is not always a great buy…especially 16 years old. Like the recent 79 Trans Am…I would not buy this.
