HONDA S2000 2008 with Ohlins Suspension

Honda S2000 and probably one of the very best examples for sale, key points:
- 2008 car, so has traction control as standard (disabled at press of a button)
- Full Honda Service History
- 2 previous owners, both of which was JT Hughes Honda (I am third owner)
- 53,950 Miles

Work carried out and modifications:
- Full bush refresh and alignment (May 2020 - nothing seized)
- Hardrace front upper adjustable arms
- Hardrace front toe links
- Hard race rear adjustable lower arms
- Full Ohlins road & track coilovers (original dampers/springs included) (Less ยฃ2000 if not wanted from list price)
- 2008 original wheels with new Goodyear F1AS5 tyres
- 2004 original wheels in brand new condition with brand new Continental Sport 6 tyres (Less ยฃ1000 if not wanted from list price)
- Original airbox included as pictured, also included is a modified factory air box for added induction sound
My aim with the car was to keep the car as original as possible but whilst addressing the suspension, namely ride height but at same time wanted to retain the factory ride quality or better and hence why very expensive Ohlins suspension was selected, this is the kind of suspension you find on 200k supercars, so it does not come much better, particular for a road car that someone may wish to do the odd track day. The whole suspension was refreshed and then aligned to a road setup so the car now drives better than stock on the road for ride quality but has considerable handling and aesthetic benefits.
The Ohlins can be removed and factory dampers/springs re-fitted, the car can also come with only one set of 2008 factory wheels if the buyer wishes and as such I would let the car go for ยฃ19,950.
The car also in May 2020 had a full Bilt Hamber protection applied to all arches and the rear underside. Upon inspection the car was totally rust free, as such the Bilt Hamber protection was applied to seal the car.
In short this a rust free well protected S2000 with refreshed suspension and a FULL HONDA SERVICE HISTORY, it was even under Honda warranty until last year.
There are some bad points:
- Odd stone chip to the front bonnet, about 2-3 in total.
- The roof is factory original and has a repair and a small tear, a new roof will cost around ยฃ350 and the contact details for this can be given upon on sale but the guy who does the roofs is fully booked until 2022.
I have plenty of photos so email or whatsapp me for more, the price is the price and I am in no rush to sell.
No test pilots and no agencies!
