"50th anniversary of Honda; the FR open-top sportscar incorporating their philosophy."
The Honda S2000 was a revolutionary car. It symbolized the company's future direction in sports cars and possessed technology that trickled down from its deep association with motorsports. The S2000 was like a Formula 1 car for the road, from its high-revving engine to its engine-start button.
The S2000's true roots came from Honda's S series from the 1960s. The S500, S600, and S800 were the S2000's forefathers, all two-seat convertible sports cars with FR (Front-engine, Rear-drive) configurations.
The S500, released in 1963, embodied Honda's philosophy of the engine and suspension working together harmoniously for maximum results and pleasure. Honda revived this philosophy for the modern age and instilled it into the S2000.
Every component of the car was purpose-built, including the super-rigid open monocoque "X-bone frame chassis". The engine was as race oriented as they came in a production car. The F20C, a 2.0-liter DOHC inline-4 featured an amazing 9000 rpm redline, with power rated at 246 HP. It also boasted excellent fuel economy. Mated to the engine was a sturdy whose throws were short and well-defined. In July 2000, the S2000 Type V was added to the lineup, featuring the VGS system that electrically controlled the steering ratio according to speed and turning angle. Aerodynamics and suspension were reworked in 2007, giving birth to the Type S with enhanced drivability on winding roads.

- In Gran Turismo 2, one of the racing schemes available for this car bears a strong resemblance with the Spoon S2000 Race Car '00, a car that appears in Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec onwards.
- The S2000 is the cover car in the Japanese version of GT2, and the title screen car of the arcade mode disc.
- In the NTSC-U version of GT2, the statement about the "superb balance" on the car's in-game description has missing text due to lack of space. Said statement was later removed in version 1.2 of the game.
- Despite appearing in nearly all Gran Turismo games to date, this car didn't receive an updated model and interior view until it was added to Gran Turismo Sport.
- In the PlayStation 3 era, the Honda S2000 '06 (based on AP2 generation) was the S2000 with an high quality model and interior. However, in GT Sport, the decision was made to include the 1999 (AP1) model instead.
- In Gran Turismo 2, the Gran Turismo/Car Graphic livery originally featured a car number #39, which was used at the 1999 Tsukuba 9 Hours event.
- However, the car numbering can still be seen on Tomica Gran Turismo 2 tie-in six-car set.
