The NEW S2kCR

Any one seen anything on the new Honda S2000CR? i was just reading my moms HONDA WING mag and its brand new n theres only 2000 of them going to be made. They eliminate the soft top n put a removable aluminum hard top on it, making it 90 pounds lighter, and the wheel n tire package is borrowed from the NSX type R ( 17 inch alumi-alloy rims, ABS, and VSA( vehicle stabilty assist). Its only gonna be sold in america. It also says that the body has been substantial bracing to the storage area( where the soft top use to be). It was giving a quicker stearing ratio plus a full body aerodynamics to set you back in your seat as you feel the wide rear tires frip the road. Its now set up with track worthy proformance. Honda says it with that and the aerodynamics it will make you feel like a "club Racer"..


I kinda wanna test drive one of these.. i wonder when its gonna be hitting the market cause it was introduced at the New york auto show in april..

Bah. That will surely put this thing just at $40,000.

I would rather get a Civic si sedan, that mugen version instead.


...for $40,000 F that, im going into a TL 6 speed!!

are there any pics of this s2k? i want to see what im paying extra, cosmetic-wise...


Im reading in Motor trend, that Honda will axe the s2000 and make a s800. A more practical sports coupe/roadster.

The new 350 are coming with 333hp now and honda is not upping the s2k? I'm very disappointed. yes I'm happy that they are finally giving the s2k a little more aggression but I don't think it's enough.

I haven't been in a F22C but unless they stepped up their low end torque big time in those, I dunno yall. S2K is too tight for me. I think I'd rather buy a Z, evne with the poor interior in them.

^^Not bad.

I've also been in a s2k.
They are cramped, but, they are ROADSTERS so whatcha gonna do?
The f22c/f20c make ALL the power up top.
I always said, the ILLEST top end speed is found in a Prelude & S2k(stock).



The new NSX is proposed at a v10 engine pushing well over 500hp going right against the Aston Martin Vantage.

I'll pass on this S2K. Rather spend the money on a downpayment for a condo.

"If it's not broke, don't fix it: this is the maxim that Honda has applied to its popular S2000 roadster for the past 6 years, making minimal modifications to the high-revving two seater.
(Credit: CNET Networks)

Here at the 2007 New York auto show, however, Honda has finally given the S2000 a new "Club Racer" trim level, designed for those drivers looking for a little more juice out of their weekend convertible.
(Credit: CNET Networks)

With a drive train unchanged from that in the regular S2000, the biggest structural modification to the S2000 CR is the replacement of the S2000's cloth roof with an as-standard removable aluminum hard top; with the top off, the new car is 90 pounds lighter. The S2000CR also boasts an ostentatious rear spoiler, a new stability bar, race-tuned suspension, and a unique interior trim. Honda estimates that, with its new modifications, the S2000CR will knock 2 seconds off the standard S2000's lap time. Check our slide show to get the full scoop with images on the 2008 Honda 2000CR. "
