DescriptionEdit

"Incorporated the worlds-first VGS steering mechanism to improve handling."

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.
