|For its 50th anniversary, Honda
decided to bring to market a car based on
the prototype SSM first shown in
autoshows in 1995.
The car is now
(finally) a reality and it seems that
Honda lived up to the expectations, with
the most powerful naturally aspired
engine on production today (Honda
announces 120+hp per liter). All this
while complying to the strongest emission
regulations (California's LEV, Euro 2000
The body, although open is highly
rigid and complies with Honda's strict
crash test specifications (both front and
semi-side impacts), which exceed all
current legal regulations.
The S2000 is expected to be available
in spring time for Japanese market, mid
summer in Australia, USA and Europe.
There will be 2000 S2000 imported for the
autumn 99-spring 2000 (hey sorry, I am
not repeating myself) period in Europe.
