23k-Mile 2001 Honda S2000 AP1 Spa Yellow

We are pleased to offer this 2001 Honda S2000 AP1 finished in Spa Yellow Pearl over a black interior. Introduced with innovative DOHC-VTEC technology, double wishbone suspension, and a 6-speed manual gearbox with a limited-slip differential, the S2000 was one of the most advanced Japanese sports cars of its day and was especially notable for its high-revving 2.0 L inline-4 engine offering an impressive 120 HP output per liter. This three-owner example was acquired by the seller in 2008 and features a factory hardtop, front and rear spoilers, and the rare factory optional magazine holder. Now with just under 24k miles showing on the odometer, this well-preserved S2000 is now being offered for auction by its longtime owner out of New Jersey.

This example is finished in Spa Yellow Pearl, a color introduced for the 2001 mode; year, and comes with a black power-retractable soft top and removable color-matched aluminum hardtop.  Front and rear spoilers were also equipped from the factory along with optional black chrome badges.  The seller reports the car to have always been garage-kept throughout their ownership and notes minimal signs of road-going wear.  Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.  The factory 16” five-spoke wheels come dressed in Goodyear Eagle GT tires showing date codes from 2010.

Inside, you will find a black interior with a sporty 3-spoke leather steering wheel, aluminum pedals and shift knob, an engine start button, and a rare factory magazine holder.  The car is also equipped with air conditioning, power windows, a full-digital instrument display, and an original Honda CD radio. The seller notes slight paint flaking near the shifter, and some minor creasing can be seen on the driver seat bolster.

The naturally aspirated 2.0 L F20C inline 4-cylinder engine features DOHC-VTEC variable valve timing and an output of 240 HP.  The rear wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission with a Torsen limited-slip differential.  Other factory performance features include double-wishbone suspension, electrically assisted power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes with ABS. Some service history is available on CARFAX, and the seller adds that the car had only ever required standard routine maintenance throughout their ownership. IMages of the undercarriage are provided in the gallery.

This sale will include the original window sticker, sales literature, spare tire, jack, tools, and a clean title.  An appreciating modern classic, this beautifully presented S2000 offers an excellent opportunity for any collector or discerning enthusiast, do not miss out.

    @SSTwin The VIN stickers are on the rear of the doors. Unfortunately, it is too late in the auction for me to add them.

  • SSTwin (registered bidder) 5 days, 10 hoursago

    @SSTwin @SSTwin, "rear of door" tags, not qtr panel tags. Again, sorry for the confusion...

  • SSTwin (registered bidder) 5 days, 10 hoursago

    @MCMMatt OK, thanks. Couldn't find the rear qtr tags (2) or the underhood tag in the pics posted. But you do confirm all 10 so that is good.

  • MCMMatt (seller) 5 days, 10 hoursago

    @SSTwin Yes, they are all there. No accidents on this car!

  • SSTwin (registered bidder) 5 days, 11 hoursago

    @MCMMatt thanks, Matt. So you are confirming all 10 are present? I'll look again; I'm just coming to this auction, so I'm in hurry-up mode!

    @MCMMatt Hi Matt
    I cherish this car just as yourself and serious buyer but would prefer not to haggle over low-ball offers. If you can dial in your reserve price, I can quickly act either with cash or step aside but I know the offers are under the value of the car.

  • Scottfreeindy 6 days, 16 hoursago

    Do you have a targeted price so we can avoid the back and forth?
    I've owned this exact car, same year and same color so I appreciate their worth.

    Hello everyone! This is an awesome car! It was impossible to take a bad photo of this one.
    Please ask questions and I will try to answer them as best as possible.

    The car does come with the Honda car cover and an extra set of keys.
