Vehicle Description

Ref: DG53TUA

SMC Heritage are proud to present this incredibly special 2003 Honda S2000 GT with just 1 retired owner from new that has covered just 37,602 miles.

In these days of forced induction and twin-clutch transmissions, the S2000’s specification reads like the stuff of dreams. You’ll struggle to find anything close to its absolute banshee of a naturally aspirated four-cylinder motor, with its stratospheric red line and scarcely believable specific output. Let alone one mated to a six-speed manual transmission that, as any car bore will tell you, is an all-time benchmark for the stick-shift.
The vital stats remain exceptional: 237bhp at 8300rpm from 1997cc. In Japan, where the F20C engine ran with a higher compression ratio (11.7:1 compared with 11.0:1) it gave 10bhp more for a world-beating specific output of 124bhp per litre. And all without the aid of turbo- or supercharging. Red line? 8800rpm. Rev limiter? 9000rpm. Back in 1999 this was reserved for the exclusive realm of supercars.
The classic front-engine, rear-drive sports car recipe was one we had grown used to Mazda owning with the MX-5, so when Honda muscled in with a considerably more potent and advanced interpretation to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary, we really sat up and took notice: its promise was considerable and compelling. The wrapping wasn’t half bad either – a sharp dagger of a profile with aquiline features that borrowed little from existing rivals but didn’t try too hard. It’s still a handsome car today

Provenance:

Built in 2003 to UK Specification it was supplied new on September 9th 2003 by Two Mills Garage official Honda dealer to Mr Martin. Mr Martin had ordered the car some 3 months earlier with the following factory options: Boot spoiler, 6 CD changer, and genuine mats bringing the total cost to £27,201.62. This is documented by the original hand written order form signed by both Mr Martin and Two Mills’ NSX specialist Dave Breeze, who’s card remains in the vehicles book pack.

With the just one owner and a service book showing 11 stamps all of which bar the last are Honda dealers it really is as good as it gets. The car is supplied with all booklets and instructions in the original soft leather book pack including unused factory security stickers. The history file is comprehensive with invoices to support the service stamps and the old MOT’s further validating the mileage. All keys are present as are the tools and even the hardtop mount and cover. The vehicle still bares the original dealer plates and stickers


Exterior:

Evidently having always been garaged the berlina black paint is in fantastic order throughout with perfect factory shut lines and a deep glossy finish. The alloys are fitted with brand new premium tyres and are finished in the correct factory polished style. The hard and soft tops are both in perfect condition. This really is a cosseted time warp car


Interior:

The interior is a fabulous place to reside with the stunning red leather contrasting perfectly with the dark exterior. All the switch gear is in perfect working order, the leather and carpets are unmarked. The digital dash works faultlessley and offers a wonderful Tokyo by night period feel. The carpets are still protected by genuine Honda over mats.


Overview:

With just 37,602 miles, one owner and an impeccable service history this vehicle really stands out amongst its often thrashed and previously damaged peers. Its condition is best described as time warp. The exterior and interior are quite simply superb. The wheels are absolutely as new and wear a brand new set matching set of Goodyear tyres. On the road this S200 drives with all the smoothness and fluidity you that you only find with low mileage perfectly maintained examples. EVO magazine pitted the S2000 against the Porsche Boxster, TVR Griffith and Lotus Elise, hallowed company all round. It really is easy to see why contemporary road tests rated the S2000 so highly and why they are now so revered in the modern classic market place.

If you are looking for the very best, most attractive and original example of this legendary roadster you need to see this car.

The vehicle will be MOT’d and fully service by SMC Heritage prior to collection for complete peace of mind.
