Sporty S2000 with OEM Honda S2000 Rims
Every time I see this car (which is pretty rare), I always try to look at the OEM Honda Rims - specifically, the OEM Honda S2000 Rims - only because they fit on the car so well! You can probably put these Honda Wheels on a BMW and they’d still make the BMW look nice .. maybe even better than before.
The roadster is clearly made by Honda Motor Company. It was initially lifted off in April of 1999 to celebrate Honda’s 50th anniversary - and if I had the money back then, I’d totally buy it. The car had first been shown at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1995. While the car has been out on sale, it has been through more than one revision .. which I think is a good thing. Some changes included changing some parts of the engine, the transmission (gearbox), suspension, and the design the car had on the inside and on the outside.
There are officially two forms of the car that exist : the first & original model that was released had the AP1 chassis code. The AP2 name was given to the models that were made from 2003 and so on. Even though they’re somewhat the same, the AP2 model had some significant changes when it came to the drivetrain & the suspension .. and 2004 Honda S2000 Rims were different from the 2003 Honda Rims .
When the AP1 model was released, it had a front - mid engine, a rear - wheel drive layout that had power being delivered by a 1,997 cc (122 cu in) F20C inline 4 cylinder DOHC-VTEC engine. This kind of engine produced 237 hp all the way to 250 PS; and from 153 lbf-ft to 22.2 kg-m .. if you’re amazing with numbers then you know what I’m talking about. The engine that’s installed is matched to a manual transmission with six - speeds and Torsen limited slip differential.
The features included independent double wishbone suspension, steering that was electronically - assisted, and integrated roll hoops.
When the AP2 model chassis was released in 2004, there were a lot of significant & noticeable changes made. There were newly designed 17” Honda S2000 Rims with Bridgestone tires. It also had a retuned suspension to reduce oversteer. The spring rates on the car and the shock absorber damping were also altered for the release of the AP2 chassis. The suspension on the car was geometry modified in order to provide a more reliable stability by reducing toe-in changes under cornering loads. In the transmission, they had replaced the brass synchronizers with carbon fiber.
Not only did it have changes on the inside, but it also had changes on the outside - or to be more specific, the exterior part of the car. There were new bumpers for the front & the back, some new headlights, LED tail -lights, AND some oval - tipped exhausts.
When the 2006 model was released to the public, the car had introduced a drive by wire throttle, an electronic stability control system, some new OEM Honda Rims , and a new color that you can choose from : Laguna Blue Pearl.
Out of all these options, how can you not want to buy the car? I mean, it has everything! Plus it’s a Honda, so you know that the car’s going to pretty reliable. Whoever said you can’t be safe and stylish at the same time obviously didn’t hear about the S2000.
