Ford released an upgraded version of the ZX2 called the S/R. The designation S/R is derived from the term "Street/Racer". It has an assortment of aftermarket racing upgrades/addons. Ford's final limited production count was 2,110 units, consisting of 110 yellow S/R's in 1999 only in southern California and in Year 2000, 500 black , 500 red and 1,000 yellow for a upgrade price of $1,500.

The optional S/R package adds stiffer suspension parts, more horsepower, rear disc brakes, a stronger clutch, a short-throw manual-transmission shifter, upgraded seats and a unique tire/wheel package. Eight SEMA products are built into ZX2 S/R. The addition of sports car extras and refinements under the hood improve the already excellent handling of ZX2 to make ZX2 S/R a real street and racetrack performer. ZX2 S/R is the first product jointly developed by Ford Racing and Ford Motor Company's Small Vehicle Center Product Development. The horsepower was increased by 10 percent over the base ZX2 by use of a recommended premium fuel re-calibration, new air inlet system and improved muffler and pipe.

All performance parts on the ZX2 S/R are tuned to complement each other. Ford's Powertrain Control Module has been calibrated to improve wide-open throttle performance and response while still meeting both federal and California low-emission vehicle standards. Premium fuel is recommended but not mandatory.
