Prices for Honda S2000s are on the rise and we’ve just come across one of the most desirable variants ever built for sale on Bring A Trailer.
This is no ordinary S2K, but instead a rare Club Racer. Honda only manufactured 699 examples worldwide and of those, just 269 units were finished in Berlina Black like this one. It is being sold in South Carolina with a Carfax report, factory manuals, and a clean Michigan title in the seller’s name.
In November last year, we wrote about a similar S2000 CR that was up for sale, but that model was painted Apex Blue Pearl, had a mere 3,985 miles (6,413 km) under its belt and an asking price of $79,000.

By comparison, this Berlina Black example has 57,000 miles (91,732 km) on the clock and certainly won’t sell for that much. At the time of writing, bidding had hit $25,250, with three days left in the auction.
Images confirm that the car retains its factory hardtop and fixed rear wing that came as standard in CR spec. Sadly, it was involved in a minor collision in October 2009 and received a new trunk lid and refinished rear bumper. However, we don’t think that should dissuade those in the market for a rare and exciting Japanese sports car that is bound to increase in value in the coming years.
Powering the S2000 Club Racer is the same 237 HP, naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four as other AP2-generation S2Ks. Modifications present on the CR include stiffened springs, dampers, and sway bars. There are also less restrictive exhaust mufflers, steering rack stiffeners, and a revised bodykit.
