2001 Honda s2000 ap1 for sale
Fast Facts:

  • The AP1 S2000 launched with the iconic 9,000 RPM redline F20C engine that produced 120 horsepower per liter. This was the highest specific output of any naturally aspirated production engine in the world. Despite this, it operates cleanly enough to qualify as a Low-Emission Vehicle (LEV)!
  • The high redline was achieved with a short stroke, low friction forged pistons and lightweight connecting rods
  • The engine is located completely behind the front axle centerline, giving the S2000 a near 50/50 weight distribution. It also featured a close ratio 6spd transmission and a torque-sensing limited slip with a 4.10:1 axle ratio
  • The brake pads are made of a highly fade-resistant non-metallic material. The pedal feel and brake bias are tuned for hard braking
  • In 2004, Honda increased the stroke of the engine, increasing the displacement to 2.2 liters and naming it the F22C. Increasing the stroke increases the piston speed, which increases drag within the engine. As a result, the redline was lowered to 8200 RPM, but it came with a bump in torque to 162 ft lbs due to the increased displacement. Overall, the new F22C made the thrust between 1000 and 8000 RPM feel slightly stronger. No longer was everything focused up top above 8000 RPM like it was in the F20C. Overall horsepower output was the same
Key Model Year Changes:

  • A clock is now standard, located in the radio (previous year S2000s had no clock). Floormats and wind deflectors are also standard. An emergency trunk release added, and Grand Prix White paint is now available
  • New factory accessories available this year include a hard top, rear spoiler, front lip, and side strakes
  • The following year (2002) saw the rear plastic window replaced for a glass one, as well as an upgraded stero/sound system, weighted shift knob, more powerful A/C fan, and chrome trim rings added to the tail lights. The entire center console is now wrapped in leather (vs carpet)
  • 2002 also saw a smaller front sway bar, a “revised transmission for smoother and quieter shifting” (Honda’s words) as well as an ECU re-map (2002-2003 S2000’s typically put down an extra 10whp)
  • The AP2 generation began in 2004, with new wheels and a switch to the F22C engine
