Almost 20-year-old Honda S2000 sells for more than new price

Almost 20-year-old Honda S2000 sells for more than new price

There was a lot of hype surrounding the Honda Integra Type-R when a 1997 example with 2,000 km on the clock sold for a whopping US$63,800 (Dhs 234,000) at auction. Just before that, a similar car with a mileage of almost 100,000 km sold for US$40,750 (Dhs 150,000). And those weren’t even Honda’s most special models, so it was only a matter of time before the S2000 got some attention. A first-year “AP1” model with less than 1,600 km was just sold for US$48,000 (Dhs 176,400) in the United States.

Long-term update: Our Honda S2000 gets a new roof, and a roof for its roof

Long-term update: Our Honda S2000 gets a new roof, and a roof for its roof

We haven’t been keeping up with updates on our 2007 Honda S2000 because we didn’t drive it much over the past 12 months (apparently less than 700 km as per the RTA inspection). But it had some major work done last year anyway, so the armchair accountants among you will surely be throwing the “cost per km” number at us as if it’s a taxi cab.

Comparo: 2018 Toyota Camry Grande vs Honda Accord 2.0T Sport

Midsize sedans are increasingly being sidelined in the face of the crossover revolution. Many manufacturers are starting to give up on the segment, but there are two that have been consistently successful — the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord. Both have been launched in all-new forms for the 2018 model year, with launch events held at the same location in Dubai, and only a month apart, as if aligned by some cosmic intervention. These two stalwarts have undergone massive changes, with one bringing back the V6 and the other one going full turbo. Seeking to answer the “which is better”

First drive: 2018 Honda Accord in the UAE

First drive: 2018 Honda Accord in the UAE

The Honda Accord has been doing perennial battle with the Toyota Camry and the Nissan Altima. Somewhere along the way, the Accord gained a reputation for being a “bit more premium,” possibly due to higher pricing or because the other two started showing up in taxi fleets around the UAE. But while all previous Accords really were just direct rivals to the other two, the new-for-2018 Accord really does pull out all the stops, and finally justifies its rep as being a “bit more premium,” as we found out on our short drive.

Acura is Honda’s luxury brand, found in only a handful of markets. The RDX crossover is Acura’s key player in the U.S. market.

So we got a 2018 Honda Jazz

So we got a 2018 Honda Jazz

SEMA Las Vegas 2017: Photo coverage

On invitation from Jeep, we had the opportunity to check out what is quite possibly the largest annual aftermarket-equipment trade show in the world, where even a few major manufacturers such as Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles, Toyota, Honda, Ford, Hyundai and Chevrolet make an appearance with modified cars, aside from hundreds of privately-owned tuner shops and suppliers.
