A 2000 Honda S2000 will cross the auction block in January, and it has a very interesting history.
The S2000 in question is owned by Hedy Cirrincione and is actually the second example she owns. She first purchased a red S2000 from a Honda dealership in upstate New York and has driven it daily ever since. Shortly after that, she heard that a second example was available with just 24 miles (38 km) on the clock. She bought that too and in the last two decades, it has only been driven an extra 10 miles (16 km).
Speaking with The Drive, Cirrincione said that, after 20 years, it is “time to let someone have it who would turn it loose on the road [and] enjoy it for the wonderful sports car it is.”
The silver S2000 has never been titled or licensed and comes with all the factory equipment. It really is as close as you can get to a brand new S2000 in the year 2020 and will no doubt attract a lot of attention at the Mecum Auctions Kissimmee event that takes place Jan 7-17, 2021.
Cirrincione says she’d love for the car to bring in $150,000 at auction. Will that happen? It’s hard to say. The lowest-mileage S2000 we’ve known to have sold was a black 2009 example with just 91 miles (146 km) on the clock that fetched $70,000 in March 2019. Prices of the S2000, and other desirable performance cars, have increased in the meantime, so we wouldn’t be shocked to see it sell for six figures.
