Modified AP2 S2000 for Sale Could Be the Right Deal for You
AP2 S2000 is rough around the edges, but the perfect start to a weekend warrior track car build.
If you’re looking for a track car, it’s hard to pass up an S2000. They’re pretty much bulletproof, very capable out of the box and easily upgraded. However, possibly as a result of this, the used S2000 market seems pretty stable, and largely ignores the conventional rules of car depreciation.
However, this AP2 that we found on Craigslist seems to be a great deal, at least on the surface. Let’s get through the basics: it’s a Silverstone 2004 AP2 with two-tone red/black interior, with a clean title and 157,978 miles on the odometer. The price, according to our seller, is firmly listed at $10,000, which seems mighty reasonable to us, especially once you hear about some of the goodies included with the sale.
This list of upgrades is pulled straight from ad:
- Buddy club racing spec coils.
- 17×9 +45 Enkei RPF1 with 255 40 17 all around. Fenders were rolled to fit
- Also have stock ap2 wheels
- I should have the stock shocks and springs as well.
- Have a steering wheel hub not installed. Took it off to keep the wheel and put the stock wheel on.
- Brembo blanks with hawk pads
- CSF aluminum radiator installed.
Those are some quality parts listed, and easily worth a couple thousand dollars on the used market. All of this makes the $10K asking price seem cheap, so what’s the catch?
Well, our seller is honest about that, as well, including a list of “cons” in the ad:
- Top is ripped and taped up
- Seat and wheel is a little worn but not ripped (pictured)
- Paint has a spot where it’s starting to fade (pictured)
- Front bumper is scratched from going off course at Willow Springs
- Airbag light is on due to the steering wheel being removed and then put back on
It is rough around the edges, but, for a track toy, that’s less things to worry about. And, assuming that the only issues are cosmetic, that means that this S2000 has a lot of life left in it, and is ready to rip.
So, why is this S2K being sold, if it seems like such a good buy? Well, according to the seller, they are “Just selling because I have other track cars and I’ll never drive this if I’m being honest with myself.”
Well, S2KI, what you do think? Is the $10,000 price just right, or not? Drop a comment and tell us why.
