Available for auction is this 2001 Honda S2000 AP1 finished in Mellow Yellow over a black interior. Equipped with a high-revving 2.0-liter engine producing an impressive 120 HP per liter stock, the S2000 remains one of the most venerated Japanese sports cars of all time. This 2001 example is said to have been acquired by the seller in 2009 and has since been customized with widened bodywork, carbon fiber fenders, doors, a rare carbon fiber Mugen hardtop, Recaro SPG seats, a 6-speed AP2 transmission, engine upgrades, and much more. Now showing approximately 56k miles showing on the odometer, this tastefully modified S2000 is being offered for auction by its owner out of California.
This S2000 was recently refinished in the BMW/Mini color of Mellow Yellow after being fitted with widened carbon fiber “downforce” fenders, an aluminum hood, Veilside front bumper, splitter, lip, and Seibon carbon fiber doors. The rear quarter panels have been widened and a rare Mugen carbon fiber hardtop has been fitted over the cockpit. It rides on a set of bronze finished 17” WedsSport TC 105N wheels dressed in Bridgestone RE11 from 2010. Detailed images can be found in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX.
The cabin has been fitted with a pair of black Recaro SPG sport seats and an Alcantara-wrapped Sparco steering wheel. Other features include an upgraded short shifter and titanium knob, an engine start button, aluminum pedals, and a digital instrument display. The seller confirms all accessories and instrumentation are fully functional.
The naturally aspirated 2.0-liter F20C inline 4-cylinder engine features VTEC variable valve timing and an output of up to 240 HP stock. The engine has been upgraded with a BMC Racing intake manifold, a Koyorad aluminum radiator, a Fuelab fuel pressure regulator, an AEM engine management system, and a Burns stainless steel exhaust system. The rear wheels are driven by way of an upgraded 6-speed manual transmission sourced from a later AP2 model. Braking and chassis upgrades include an AP Racing big brake kit, KW V3 coilovers, Eibach sway bars, and polyurethane bushings throughout. The car has been driven sparingly over the past 12 years and was recently treated to a full service including fresh oil, transmission, and brake fluids.
This sale will include a clean title.
