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 made its debut at the Santa's Gift Update, previewed from the trailer and available as a free try in its cup from January 4th to 8th 2016, as a prize for top 55 in the normal event and top 75 in the multiplayer event. It appears as a top D Class car, with a starting rank of 932 (the second highest in all of Class D), a max rank of 1195 (18 points higher than Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X) and a final rank of 1350 (4 points lower than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X and Subaru Impreza WRX STI). Apart from responsive handling, it sports one of the best nitro durations in the game, being as long as the Renault DeZir, making it superior against the Impreza on long tracks. Its acceleration, which is faster than Impreza's makes it an ideal choice for Multiplayer, but the Impreza is still the king at most cases, thanks to its top speed (371 > 362 km/h). The car costs 295,000 to purchase.
