The Honda S2000 is an open top sports car, named for its engine displacement of two liters, carrying on in the tradition of the S500, S600, and S800 roadsters of the 1960s.
The S2000 was manufactured by Honda between 1999 to 2009 (110,673 units as of 2008). It made its debut at the 1995 Tokyo Motor Show as a concept car and production began in April 1999 to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary. The name is derived from its engine displacement of 2 liters, carrying on in the tradition of the S500, S600, and S800 roadsters of the 1960s.
Several revisions were made throughout the car's lifetime, including changes to the engine, gearbox, suspension, and interior and exterior. Officially two variants exist: the initial launch model was given the chassis code AP1, Though cosmetically similar, the facelift version (known as the AP2 in the USA) incorporated significant changes to the drivetrain and suspension. Production of the S2000 ceased in June 2009. In Japan, it was exclusively sold through the Honda Verno sales channel.
The Honda S2000 was added in the Santa's Gift Update as a high-end Class D car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 932
- This was changed to 1026 in the Showdown Update.
- MAX rank: 1195 (+263)
- This was changed to 1208 (+182) in the Showdown Update.
- MAX+PRO rank: 1350 (+155)
- This was changed to 1329 (+121) in the Showdown Update.
- Tuning Kit bonus: +56
- This was changed to +44 in the Showdown Update.
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 418
- This was changed to 303 in the Showdown Update.
- Nitro Efficiency: 5/10/15
The Honda S2000 can be described as a well-balanced car, with excellent nitro efficiency (5/10/15), very quick acceleration, decent top speed, and responsive handling. In fact, it accelerates more quickly than even former top-end Class A/Class S cars such as the Koenigsegg One:1 and McLaren 675LT.
With an extreme price in addition to its inferior performance when compared to the Mazda RX-8, Donkervoort D8 GTO, Buick Avista Concept, nanoFlowcell QUANTINO, and Hyundai i30 N; the S2000 is merely a collector’s item.
The Honda S2000 has a buying price of 295,000 that has since been reduced to 150,000. As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 736,000 while Pro Kits require 245,600, 40 of each Class D Part, 50 Early & Initial Techs each, and 40 i4 Engines.
The Honda S2000 was also given as a Daily Bonus in January 2017 after 30 days of consecutive logins.
Between the game's soft launch and the Nissan Update, the S2000 cost 245 Diamonds and was only unlocked after completing the crew races of New York. The Graphics Update increased its price to 300 Diamonds.
