As a quintessential sports car, the Honda is a performance icon for the Honda that combines racetrack-inspired with everyday usability. The engine, rear-wheel-drive S2000 driving enthusiasts with a 2.2-liter, 16-valve DOHC 4-cylinder engine and a precise, 6-speed manual transmission, with tenacious handling and an 50/50 weight balance.

The high-revving engine delivers 237 at 7800 rpm and 162 lb-ft. of torque at rpm. Perfectly complementing the output characteristics is a compact, close-ratio 6-speed manual that features a direct for precise shifting and quick Additional performance features a front and rear double suspension, electric power and a torque-sensing limited slip differential.

The Honda S2000 with 17-inch aluminum wheels, ABS and Vehicle Stability (VSA). (VSA is the Honda name for electronic stability While VSA serves to effectively driver control during braking, and cornering, the system can be with the touch of a button conditions warrant. Air conditioning and an audio system are standard on the Honda S2000, optional on the CR for weight savings.

New for 2008, the S2000 has revised spring and tuning that subtly steering feel and high vehicle behavior. Inside, the changes include revised panel meters and minor to the seat design. Also, a Pressure Monitoring System has been added.

The DOHC VTEC 4-cylinder produces 237 horsepower and 162 lb-ft. of while meeting California’s Vehicle 2 (LEV-2) standards. innovative VTEC advanced valve-timing system operates the 16 valves in both intake and modes. This system is and tailored to the high-output, high-rpm characteristics of the Honda S2000

Torque and horsepower are optimized the engine’s entire operating to simultaneously provide low-end and top-end performance near the 8000 rpm redline. The Honda is capable of accelerating from mph in less than six seconds.

The cylinder head maximizes efficiency with a compact and chain-drive system for the dual camshafts. The ancillary drive for the alternator, water pump and compressor also use a space-efficient

ightweight pistons are made of aluminum alloy and the forged-steel rods and crankshaft are heat-treated for toughness. Numerous friction-reduction such as, roller-bearing cam followers and bearing materials, are used in the

A large-capacity, low-restriction intake and low back-pressure exhaust system to the engine’s overall efficiency and create the Honda S2000’s performance demeanor. (The CR sport muffler is tuned for a aggressive exhaust note.) The system uses a high-efficiency catalyst. A direct-ignition system and multi-point fuel injection to the S2000’s engine achieving its status.

A 6-speed, manual uses closely-spaced low gear on gears one through five, and a sixth speed gear for highway cruising (65mph = rpm). The transmission is a compact and features a direct mechanical linkage with short between each gear. A limited-slip differential distributes to both rear wheels or variably as traction conditions

The Honda S2000 is an open-topped, roadster with a near 50/50 weight distribution. The S2000 uses steel construction with the exception of the which is aluminum. The body and are a hybrid monocoque structure.

The X-Bone Frame is formed by the high side sills, and (X) bracing underneath the body. A central tunnel runs the center of the cockpit. The tunnel as the backbone and main load-bearing for the vehicle, as well as a housing for the and driveshaft.

The exterior styling of the body is designed to appear modern and sleek. The long and flared front fenders the impression of lowness and mass. discharge (HID) projector highlight the front of the vehicle, the taillight design follows a theme with large, multi-LED taillights set in clear-lens

The Honda S2000 CR adds aerodynamic body work functions to significantly reduce and enhance chassis balance at speeds. An underbody front and a trunk lid-mounted rear combine to lower the Coefficient of (Cl) by as much as 70-80 depending on the roof configuration. is created by the rear spoiler the hardtop is installed as the contour of the is designed to influence aerodynamics at the of the vehicle.

The Honda S2000’s and rear double wishbone systems are a compact in-wheel similar to the type used on cars. At each wheel, and lower A-shaped wishbone carry suspension loads to the subframes. Front 215/45 R17 87W and 245/40 R17 91W (255/40 R17 94W on CR) tires are on newly-designed and lighter weight alloy wheels.

The 11.8-inch front brake discs and solid rear brake are calibrated to provide world-class power and a solid, linear feel. Coil springs and gas-pressurized dampers (remote in the rear) are used at each Front and rear stabilizers keep body roll to a

Electronic stability control is through the VSA system, and an ABS system is equipment. An electrically-assisted power system provides more steering assist at low speeds for As vehicle speed increases, power assist is supplied, the steering a more direct

For 2008, the Honda S2000 has been tuned with new damper and stabilizer bar settings to enhance road-holding and steering The Honda S2000 CR suspension goes even further by advantage of body rigidity made possible with the removable hardtop configuration and by stiffer springs and sway and firmer dampers. Specially-developed gearbox stiffeners on the S2000 CR an even more direct, feel, and is further supplemented by a steering ratio of 13.8:1 to 14.9:1 for the S2000).

The Honda driver-oriented interior is designed to be in much the same way as a purpose-built with excellent outward and simplicity of controls. High reinforce the cockpit-like feel of the The seats contour to provide lateral support during turns.

Controls such as the brakes and clutch, operate a high level of precision and a commanding feel. The aluminum and shift knob, racing-inspired instrument display and engine-start further highlight the vehicle’s pedigree.

The list of comfort and convenience includes a power-operated convertible top opens or closes in approximately six (replaced by a removable aluminum on the S2000 CR), power locks, power windows, control, Immobilizer Theft-Deterrent and keyless entry for the doors and the The following features are standard on the S2000 and available on the S2000 CR: air with micron air filtration and an audio system with speakers (including four located in the roll bar hoops the seats) and remote-operated audio
