Untitled And Unregistered Honda S2000 Could Be Yours For A Little Under $100,000

The Honda S2000 is often regarded as one of the best roadsters ever created and here’s your chance to buy one that’s virtually brand new.

Currently listed on eBay with a buy it now price of $98,888 (£79,131 / €89,307), this particular roadster is from the 2009 model year and has never been registered or titled. The car also has 95 miles (153 km) on the odometer and this means it’s probably one of the lowest mileage S2000’s in existence.

Given the low mileage, it’s not surprisingly that the car looks factory fresh. As you can see in the photos, the Berlina Black paint job looks immaculate and there aren’t any signs of body damage or rust. The interior also appears to be in great shape, although it feels a little dated nowadays.

The S2000 is powered by a 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 237 hp (177 kW / 240 PS) and 162 lb-ft (219 Nm) of torque. It screams to 8,000 rpm and is connected to a six-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential.

The car originally stickered for $35,465 (£28,376 / €32,032), so the $98,888 (£79,131 / €89,307) asking price seems a bit steep. That’s even before we mention the biggest kicker – the same exact car was sold for $70,000 (£56,006 / €63,224) on Bringatrailer earlier this year.

As a result, it’s doubtful that an extra seven months and 4 miles (6 km) on the odometer caused the car to appreciate $28,888 (£23,116 / €26,092). Of course, if you’re in the market for a ‘brand new’ S2000 there aren’t many options and you can always make an offer instead of paying the asking price.

    You can buy all the parts from Honda and build one for yourself for that money.

      And spare some too.

      You could say that for any car that gains a ‘collectors’ status and their prices rise. Usually that status only happens once the car is out of production.. Also even more mundane older cars fetch big prices when they are virtually brand-new.

      Very small sample size. What someone asks and what they actually get are usually very different.

    I love the car. I also guess those who know me a bit by now know my opinion. That is not, by any means, a rare car. Its price to me is in the range of 40k. Not one more cent.

  • William rowe

    the car is nice and clean but no not for 70k and def not for 100k.. The most I would offer is 25k

    • Dude

      The values are moving that way, though the range is huge. You can get one for 25k but low mileage rare variants go for $50k-$60k.

  • thejohnnycanuck

    Wow. More power to the seller if he can find someone willing to pay that kind of money.

    I had an ’02. It was brilliantly simple, and Honda was completely honest and clear about who should own this car. If you need Nav, this car isn’t for you. If you need an automatic transmission, this car isn’t for you. If you need a silent interior with a three-layer convertible top, this car isn’t for you. Dual zone climate… pfffft. It was incredibly fun when it was up to speed. The constant need to rev the F out of the engine was strange at first, and annoying at times. And I had to re-adjust the way I applied the throttle again whenever I stepped into a different manual transmission car. I understand that Honda modified this somehow with the mid cycle update. The cars flaws were also its greatest attributes. It was endearing. Honda will unlikely ever offer another car like this again. That said, anything remotely close to $100k is pure idiocy.

      I owned two (AP1 and AP2) and don’t miss them at all. The S2000 didn’t handle well and was unpredictable at it’s limits in the curves. The rear end broke loose without warning. The engine was weak, even when I got it about 6000 RPM’s and the middle console got too hot, it was God awful in the summer with the top down. The top was cheap and would wear on the edges, the stereo was cheap, the paint was thin. The best thing about those cars was the shifter, it was butterly smooth and the throws were extremely short and precise. The visibility was also great and the nose was the perfect length. It also had a decent trunk. I wouldn’t pay over $20,000 for one.

        I think I paid around $27k for mine when it was new. It was a lot of fun for the money, and was fine for two years. But when the Audi S4 went on sale with that amazing V8, it made the S2k seem like a slug. I finally discovered what real torque was.

        • nastinupe

          Exactly. The same thing happened with me. I went from an S2000 to an M3 and never looked back. Then I bought the 911 and that was Endgame for me. I paid $29k for mine. It was worth it back then in 2005, but in 2019, there’s no way I would pay $100,000 for a 240 hp roadster from Honda. Why when I can spend half that on a slightly used Porsche 718 Boxster and call it a day. And if you just HAVE to spend $100,000 get a Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder.

    I wonder… given that it’s never been titled or registered…. will it come with a full factory warranty?
