You Just Missed This White On Red 5,800-Mile Honda S2000, Someone Snatched It For $26,100

Honda S2000 prices are climbing steadily, with some very low-mileage examples racking up sums as high as $50,000.

With that in mind, this 2000 model was really a bargain, considering it had just under 5,800 miles (9,334 km) on the odometer and it just sold on eBay for $26,100.

With only one owner from new (an unnamed “prominent Indiana industrialist”), the car is said to be in pristine condition. The photos certainly seem to support that statement. The roadster features an “immaculate” white exterior and red interior that don’t seem to be aware of the almost two decades that passed since the car rolled off the assembly line.

The ad describes the car as “showroom fresh inside and out” and says the owner bought it new, drives it “gently” in summer, and keeps it in climate-controlled storage in winter. The car should also drive just like in 2000, given that it’s in stock shape and has covered so few miles.

The high-revving, naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder VTEC engine makes 240 hp at 8,300 rpm, channeled to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. Add to that the fifty-fifty weight distribution, Torsen limited-slip differential, and independent double wishbone suspension and it’s hard to have more fun while going as fast in any other car.

Sure, it was an AP1, which means it had smaller 16-inch wheels, a slightly lower peak torque of 208 Nm (153 lb-ft) that the AP2, which came with 17-inch rims, 6-percent more torque, as well as suspension and braking upgrades. Still, chances are you won’t find an AP1 at this price in the foreseeable future.
