SMC Heritage are proud to present this incredibly special 2005 Honda S2000 GT with just 1 retired lady owner for the last 14 years that has covered just 18,600 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 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 ……

Built in 2005 to UK GT Specification it was registered on the 27th September 2005 on the then new 55 registration by Two Mills Garage official Honda dealer as their Management demonstrator. Shortly afterwards with just 1000 miles the vehicle was sold to their long term customer Mrs B as a present to herself for her upcoming retirement with her 2002 Civic Sport in part exchange. We have the original hand written order form, invoice and pre-handover checklist on file. From that point the vehicle would be maintained solely by her local Honda franchise every year irrespective of mileage.
With a long term lady owner and 2 service books showing an incredible 15 main dealer service stamps with supporting invoices, health checks and MOT’s 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 the original factory security key cards. The history file is totally comprehensive with invoices and health checks 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

*On the 2018 MOT and health check some minor corrosion was noted as an advisory on one of the front anti roll bars. Ever the diligent owner the was no way her beloved S2000 would be allowed to suffer the indignity of rust. The relevant parts where replaced by Honda and then the car was sent to local specialist Silver Fern Performance. They set about painstakingly refurbishing the underside of the vehicle to future proof it. They stripped it back before treating any areas showing signs of corrosion before reapplying rubberised stone chip and waxoil to maintaining condition and originality. We have the invoices from both Honda and Silver Fern to verify this.
Evidently having always been garaged the moonrock grey metallic paint is in fantastic order throughout with perfect factory shut lines and a deep glossy finish. The alloys are fitted with factory correct Bridgestone’s and where professionally refurbished in 2019 and are still as new. The rear calipers where replaced at the last service due to lack of use so we have refurbished the fronts to match. The hard and soft tops are both in lovely condition with only some minor lifting of the ppf applied to the hardtop edge to detract. Under the bonnet is superb and the often faded and flaking rocker cover is perfect and still bares its factory red distinctive crinkle finish. This really is a cosseted time warp car
The interior is a fabulous place to reside with the stunning red and black contrasting leather perfectly co-ordinating with the stunning exterior colour. All the switch gear is in perfect working order and the leather and carpets are unmarked. The digital dash is in in perfect working order and offers a wonderful Tokyo by night period feel. The carpets are still protected by genuine Honda over mats.
With just 18,600 miles, one long term fastidious lady 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 set matching factory correct Bridgestone tyres. On the road this S200 drives with all the smoothness and fluidity you that you only find with the lowest mileage and 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 has just undergone a full Main Dealer Service, Health Check and MOT for complete peace of mind and is of course fully HPI clear
