Don’t worry, you haven’t misread that title, nor have you stumbled upon an eight-year-old news story. Yes, believe it or not a Honda dealer in Australia really did sell a brand new Honda S2000 last month.
The ladies and gents at Car Advice stumbled upon some VFACTS information (VFACTS being Australia’s car industry statistics) that suggested a brand new S2000 had been sold in November. The publication promptly contacted Honda Australia, and were told it wasn’t a mistake.
It turned out an unnamed dealer in New South Wales had kept a 2008 example to one side as a showroom vehicle, and for whatever reason never sold the thing. Until November that is, when a punter managed to snag it for an unknown price.
It’s still unclear whether or not Honda will make a successor to the S2000 (rumours come and go), so it could be a while before this Honda dealer sells anything like this again…
