The 2000 Honda S2000 (AP1) is a rear-wheel drive roadster manufactured by Honda.
The S2000 revived the Honda S roadster series, which was absent for twenty-nine years, with production running from mid-1999 to mid-2003 for the first generation "AP1", and continued from 2004 until 2009 with the reconfigured - as well as facelifted - second generation "AP2".
Various additions and alterations were made with the model years proceeding the 2000 model, with the 2002 model receiving the most changes, and the 2003 model year receiving very little prior to the new generation the following year.
Enthusiasts consider the S2000's engine as one of the most powerful naturally aspirated inline-four engines ever built. Worldwide, the S2000 has won many awards for its genuine driving quality and reliability.
Need for Speed: ProStreet
The S2000 appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 2 car included with the downloadable Booster Pack and can be purchased for free from the car lot.
Due to its rear-wheel drive layout and low kerb weight, it can be faster through corners than other tier 2 cars, but may be outperformed along straights as it has a somewhat low top speed.
Need for Speed: Shift
The S2000 appears in Need for Speed: Shift as an unlocked tier 1 car and is purchasable for $35,000. It is capable of a Works conversion and is featured with a 3.00 car rating.
It is a well performing vehicle within its range. It is capable of high-speed cornering like the Mazda MX-5 and is a good choice for a starter car. Its acceleration and top speed are somewhat lacking to higher rated cars such as the Nissan 350Z.
It is more effective through corners than along straight roads, making it a valuable car for race courses with corners that are close to each other, and can be very effective for drifting too.
Shift 2: Unleashed
The S2000 appears in Shift 2: Unleashed as a Modern Road car with a D 430 performance rating and 2.84 handling rating.
Players can swap its engine with the V6 from the Acura NSX, which drastically improves performance without any negatively influence on handling.
