The Honda S2000 (AP2) is the facelifted version of the Honda S2000 convertible sports car. The AP2 S2000 was produced between 2004 and 2009.
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 debuted in the Santa's Gift Update. It appears as a high-end Class D car, with a starting rank of 932 (shared with the BMW M2, as both cars have the same starting top speed and nitro stats), a MAX rank of 1195, and a MAX+PRO rank of 1350. The S2000 gains +56 from Tuning Kits.
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.
The S2000 costs 295,000 to purchase and 2,314,360 to max out. Pro Kit Upgrades cost 533,675. With such an extreme price in addition to its inferior performance when compared to the Mazda RX8, Donkervoort D8 GTO, Buick Avista Concept, and nanoFlowcell QUANTINO, the S2000's competitive edge is now greatly reduced. The only uses left for the S2000 are being a collector's car that counts towards the Old School collection, as well as being one of the best choices in certain events with a limited car selection that feature the S2000 (it will be either the dominant car in such events, or being the 2nd best available choice if the Mazda 6 is also featured except if the track is either Iceland Reverse, Tokyo, or Azure Coast Reverse). It was also given as a Daily Bonus for 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
Performance & Usage Edit
While the S2000 only has mid Class D starting stats, its starting rank hints at its potential as a top tier car.
Owing to its upgrades, shifting pattern and high redline, the S2000 is an incredibly capable car. So much so that it is capable of beating all of the Class C cars and can challenge the lower Class B cars.
Overall, the S2000 is a very valuable addition to the player's garage with its huge "bang for your buck" value.
