Ravishing Red AP2 S2000 Looks Like a Solid Deal

Most Honda S2000 examples we've seen selling lately are nothing but flips, but this beauty is a one-owner gem.

Exception to the Rule

Of all the many low-mile, original Honda S2000 examples we've seen selling lately, the vast majority look like flips. But this very attractive '04 that recently crossed the virtual block at Bring a Trailer appears to be the exception to that rule.

One Owner

That's because until now, this AP2 lived its entire life under one owner. It was sold new at Hopkins Honda in Hopkins, Minnesota, and driven a total of 57k miles in the years since.

Baby Me

Judging by the way this New Formula Red beauty looks, that owner took care of it, too. And that includes washing the car by hand and keeping it garaged during those harsh Minnesota winters.

Somewhat Used

There are some typical rock chips and a scuff on the front bumper, but nothing out of the ordinary. And hey, at least the seller drove his S2000 more than a handful of miles per year, unlike most of the ones we've seen lately.

Good and Bad

The factory wheels are likewise in good shape, as is the convertible top, save for a small tear. The tires might need replacing, however, as they show 2008 and 2014 date codes in the front and rear, respectively.

Factory Fresh

Heck, the car even comes with an official Honda S2000 car cover, which is pretty cool. With all the modified examples of this car running around, it's nice to see one that's remained factory fresh all these years.

Nice and Original

That theme carries over to the inside, which appears to be in pretty immaculate condition. All of the factory goodies are still in place as well, including the steering wheel, shift know, floor mats, etc.

No Wear

It's pretty typical to see some sort of side bolster wear on at least the driver's seat, but these appear to be in excellent condition despite the mileage.

Well Maintained

The engine bay of this AP2 is likewise super clean, and it's been well-maintained as well. The car was sold with a full-service history from the selling dealer, as well as all the original documentation.

Reasonable Price

Ultimately, this ravishing red AP2 hammered for $18,275, which isn't bad for a one-owner, well-documented, low-mile, 100% original car. Now, we just hope the second owner doesn't just turn around and flip it for a profit!
