Default [NEWS] Honda S2000 custom one-off for 20th anniversary


Supposedly a one-off custom-build for the Tokyo car show, but it might
well be being used to gauge the response for bringing it back.


From Jalopnik.com ...


The Honda S2000 To Return As A New Custom One-Off
To Remind Everyone It's An Icon
-------------------------------------------------
The good news is that the Honda S2000 is coming back, from Honda,
next year. The disappointing news is that's it's only a custom
updated one-off to celebrate the iconic roadster's 20th
anniversary.

Hoping S2000 prices would slip down anytime soon? Fat chance,
loser. Honda is doing its best to remind everyone just how
special its old roadster is, and it's building a super special
one for January's upcoming Tokyo Auto Salon.

This bespoke S2000 will feature an updated look, according to
details from Road And Track, Car And Driver, and others, with an
updated lower intake that makes it look almost exactly like a
Toyota 86 from the front for some reason. The side sills, rear
spoiler, and fenders have all also been reworked, and the
suspension has been updated to something a little more modern
than what they had back when the car was in production.

This one will be an AP1 chassis, which was produced from 1999 to
2003 before the original car underwent significant production
changes.

The interior also gets an updated radio system, though it's
unclear if any other upgrades have been made. There are red
seats, and the car sits on 17-inch Advan RZ2 shiners.

The one-off roadster will be joined starting Jan. 10 at the Salon
by a custom first-gen Type R Civic with a wing and wheels from a
Honda Insight, a one-seater microcar, and a JDM Stepwagon MPV
with a motorcycle behind the seats called the "Multipurpose Slope
Vehicle."
