Default Honda Hosts Largest Gathering of S2000s in History Nearly five-hundred S2000 roadsters and their own

Honda S2000 Homecoming



TORRANCE, Calif. - Sep 19 —

American Honda Motor Co., Inc., hosted nearly 500 Honda S2000 roadsters and
their owners at the first-ever Honda S2000 Homecoming at Honda's Torrance,
California, facility, the company announced today. Held on Saturday, September
8, the event represented the largest gathering of S2000s to date. Almost 1,000
guests attended the show and had an opportunity to meet Shigeru Uehara, the
chief engineer for the S2000 who flew from Japan to attend the event. S2000
enthusiasts also had an early viewing of the all-new S2000 CR before its scheduled
on sale date in early October.


"It was very rewarding to see so many fans of the S2000 gathered together
for this event," said Shigeru Uehara, chief engineer of the Honda S2000.
"I was very happy to present the S2000 CR as my gift to enthusiasts in
the United States."


"This is what owners have wanted for a while," said S2000 owner
Mike Trinh, a Community Organizer of S2K International, a group of owners that
meets regularly in Torrance and West Covina, California. "The Homecoming
isn't just about the car; it's about the community, getting all of the owners
together to share stories and information."


The Honda S2000 represents the purest expression of Honda fun-to-drive DNA
with its two-seat, open-topped roadster configuration and sophisticated front-engine,
rear-wheel-drive platform. As a true sports car that can serve as a practical
and fun daily driver and also feel equally at-home on a racetrack, this concept
further evolves with the addition of the club racer-inspired S2000 CR to the
Honda lineup.


The S2000 CR (CR for "Club Racer") introduces more track-oriented
suspension settings, aerodynamic-enhancing bodywork, a removable hardtop, higher
rigidity and reduced weight to the S2000 formula. The added features are designed
to appeal to enthusiasts who enjoy open track-day events and also provide a
more ideal starting point for racers who modify the S2000 for competition in
club racing events.
