Honda UK has an impressive fleet of cars in its Heritage Collection, and you’ve probably seen some of them when they were gathered together to coincide with the debut of the all-new Civic Type R. However, for the first episode of its new Honda Heritage video series, the company brought out one of its most iconic convertibles ever – the S2000.

This isn’t just any regular old S2000 but the GT Edition 100, which was built to commemorate the end of production of the rear-wheel drive sports car. The Edition 100 was unique to the United Kingdom market, while other European countries got the Ultimate Edition instead. As the name suggests, only 100 units were made (the one shown here is car #36), and featured unique aesthetic details as Tom Lynch, press officer and fleet coordinator for Honda UK, shows us in the video.

He also explains that the Edition 100 is based on the AP2, which first appeared as a 2004 model year car. New headlights, taillights, rear bumper, exhaust pipes and chassis tweaks were among the changes that differentiated it from the pre-facelift AP1 model.

Under the hood, the 2.0 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder VTEC engine revved up to 9,000 rpm, and was rated at 237 hp at 8,300 rpm and 208 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm, good for a zero to 100 km/h time of 6.2 seconds. The mill is paired to six-speed manual and a limited-slip differential, with drive going to the rear wheels.

Production of the S2000 ceased in 2009, and the company has not officially revealed any plans for a successor. However, it has been heavily rumoured that Honda may have a new S2000 in the works, and if it could remake the NSX for the modern world, why not the S2000, right?
