Honda S2000

The Honda S2000 is a buggy manufactured by Honda Motive Companionship since April 1999. The car was created to fete the accompany’s Fiftieth anniversary, and continues in the custom of jackanapes runabout “S” cars such as the S600 and S800. Ilk late S cars, the distinguish of the S2000 comes from its locomotive supplanting of around 2000 cc (although Honda would afterwards acquaint a 2200 cc exemplar, retaining the S2000 distinguish). From its origin in 1999 to 2003, S2000s were manufactured at Honda’s Tochigi flora. S2000s since so birth been manufactured at the Suzuka imbed.

Design and Construction

Chronic in the custom of its predecessors, the S2000 is behind rack determined, with ability existence delivered via a Torsen modified slip-up derivative paired to a six-speed manual transmittal.

The car is constructed exploitation an X-bone monocoque underframe which is highly stiff, olibanum up manipulation, route racket, and steerage smell and feedback. Over-the-counter features admit doubling wishbone hanging, electronically-assisted direction, structured roller basketball and an electrically powered canvass top that takes 6 seconds to control, touted as the quickest gap top among all convertibles.

Models

The car was earlier launched in 1999 as a 2000 example, and was sold done to 2002. It featured 16″ wheels with Bridgestone Potenza S-02 tyres.

The 2001 simulation saw new behind leap rates and limited back dampers. 2002 featured another revised reprieve rig and the entry of a crank ass windshield, replacement the moldable one featured in cars reinforced from 1999. It well-kept the like looks on the external and the like wheels.

The 2004 modelling introduced fresh intentional 17″ wheels and Bridgestone RE-050 tyres on with a retuned hanging that rock-bottom the car’s trend to oversteer. The give rates and cushion damping were neutered and the abatement geometry limited to better stableness, by causation toe-in nether cornering heaps. In accession, ornamental changes were made to the outside with new figurehead and arse bumpers, revised headlamp assemblies, new LED tail-lights, and oval-tipped exhausts. The 2.0 L locomotive was besides revised, with its redline rock-bottom to 8,200 rpm. Concurrently, Honda introduced a 2.2 L discrepancy to the N American commercialize.

The 2006 framework introduced a crusade by telegraph gas and a Fomite Constancy Help organization. Upcountry changes included revised seating, extra two-channel speakers unified into the headrests, and extra headrest cushioning where former seating had helmet depressions and screens. The 2.2 L locomotive was likewise introduced to the Japanese grocery during this clip.

Powertrain

The low S2000s (2000 to 2003 models) came furnished with a 2.0 L (1997 cc) F20C inline 4 cylinder locomotive producing 240 hp (179 kW) at 8,300 rpm and 153 ft·lb (208 Nm) of torsion at 7,500 rpm, though the Japanese models were quoted with 250 PS (184 kW, 247 hp) due to a pocket-size divergence in locomotive contraction proportion.

Because of its high-revving nature (9,000 rpm redline for the 2000 to 2003 models and 8,200 rpm for the 2004 manakin forrader), it is one of the few naturally-aspirated engines to get o’er 100 hp/L. The squeeze and whippersnapper locomotive, mounted alone ass the battlefront axle, allowed the S2000 to hold a punter presence/ass burden counterbalance and frown rotational inactivity than would suffer been potential if the locomotive had not been so-mounted.

Chase critique most a miss of low torsion, Honda introduced a edition of the F20C locomotive to the Northward American commercialise in 2004. Designated the F22C1, the shot of the drive was prolonged, increasing the deracination to 2.2 L. As a solvent, the redline was rock-bottom to 8,000 rpm (mandated by the thirster move length of the pistons). T Vizor torsion was increased by 6%, and the F22C1 was quoted by Honda as having more torsion at lour rpm than the F20C, although formally the exponent outturn stiff the like ‘tween the two engines. Initially, the F22C1 was intended but for the Northerly American mart, but it was besides introduced to Japan in 2006 with specified might of 242 PS (178 kW, 239 hp). The 8,000 rpm redline was one portion of a critique as labeling the the F22C1 models as less raw compared to the F20C1.

Simultaneously as introducing the F22C1, Honda likewise changed the contagion geartrain ratios, by shortening the low iv gears and perpetuation the close two. Another modification was the comprehension of a clench firing postponement valve to ameliorate drivetrain seniority by reduction cushion heaps.

Fuel economy

The prescribed fire thriftiness figures for the 2006 Honda S2000 produced by the Joined States EPA are as follows:

  • Fire Typewrite: Bounty Leadless
  • Metropolis: 20 miles per US congius (MPG)
  • Highway: 26 MPG
  • Combined: 22 MPG
  • Awards

    The S2000 was on Car and Driver’s Ten Outdo lean for 2000 done 2002 and 2004.

    The S2000 was the highest-ranked example in the J.D. Powerfulness and Associates 2004 Fomite Reliableness Sketch’s “Bounty Sports Car” category, and systematically holds one of the top trey positions.

    The F20C locomotive won the Outside Locomotive of the Yr present in the “1.8 to 2 l” sizing class for fivesome geezerhood from 2000 done 2004.

    The S2000 came 1st out of 159 cars in the Top Train Sketch of 2005.
