Honda honours S2000 with ‘Ultimate Edition’

honda-s2000-ultimate-fq

Honda recently announced that the S2000 will cease production after the 2009 model year and with any real successor in doubt, Honda decided to give the high-revving roadster a final hoorah before it sets off down the long road to becoming a future classic.

The Honda S2000 Ultimate Edition retains the 2.0-litre VTEC-equipped four-cylinder putting out 237 hp and 153 lb-ft of torque through a six-speed manual transmission, but benefits from a new set of wheels and an optional hard-top. “Grand Prix White” is the chosen colour, while a red leather interior, colour-matched stitching and numbered doorsill plaques set it apart from the standard model. Honda will debut the S2000 Ultimate Edition at the Geneva Motor Show this March, with sales beginning in Europe shortly thereafter. The S2000 Ultimate Edition is clearly a class ride but most Honda fans would rather see the money spent on developing a new sports model, rather than dressing up an old favourite.
