Chassis no. JHMAP114XYT000250. 1997cc, 2.0-liter four-cylinder/240hp, 6-speed manual transmission.

Evaluation: First-year AP1 car in classic colors. Represented with 11,115 believable miles. The headlights are a little cloudy and there is a scratch on the bottom front as well as minor curb rash on the left rear wheel. Otherwise, it looks like the carefully kept, seldom driven car that it is. This S2K has all the life left in it.

Bottom Line: Introduced in 1999 for the 2000 model year, the S2000 was clearly formed in the spirit of Honda’s first sports cars, the S500/600/700 of the 1960s, but it blended the classic roadster concept with twenty-first century technology. One of the best (and best-looking) sports cars of the 2000s, the S2K was a mass-market product but clean examples are already collectible. While not uniquely clean or low-mile, this one is a very good car. It was bid to a $42k no-sale on the block but was soon listed sold later at this curiously much higher final price. If the car has all the life left in it, this was all the money for it. It probably wouldn’t have even brought more on Bring a Trailer.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
