To honor the end of a once-popular roadster, Honda will sell a new limited edition S2000. The Honda S2000 Ultimate Edition goes on sale this March.
Honda S2000 fans will get one last chance at buying the roadster. Beginning in March, the Honda S2000 Ultimate Edition will go on sale to honor the car's short-but-sweet history.
The Ultimate Edition comes in Grand Prix white with graphite colored alloys. Black S2000 badging is also seen around the vehicle. Inside, the driver is greeted by a red leather interior, with matching red stiching along the gear shift. A number plate marking the car's place in the limited edition run is mounted to the kickplate.
Mechanically, the car is the same as the current edition. A 2.0-liter 237 horsepower engine moves the car along.
Production of the Honda S2000 is slated to end in June, following a restructuring plan introduced by Honda CEO Takeo Fukui. The new direction is meant to refocus attention on Honda vehicles geared towards a mass audience, with innovations making those models more efficient. Along with the S2000, the NSX project, several Acura vehicles, the CR-Z convertible, and a new V8 engine were all cancelled.
The Honda S2000 Ultimate Edition will be unveiled on March 3 at the Geneva Motor Show.
