Back in October we told you that Honda is considering bringing back to life an S2000-type sports car. Today we come back with new details of the new sports car as we found out that the new car will be a coupe rather than a convertible as the iconic S2000.
Moreover, the vehicle will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine that will deliver around 350 hp.
The same engine will also be used by the next-generation Honda Civic Type R, which will arrive next year. The S2000 successor will also receive some hybrid technology, developed in cooperation with McLaren’s Formula 1 team and this means that there will be a fuel consumption of around 7 l/100 km (33 mpg US).
Still, the sports car will be capable to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in around 5.0 seconds, while top speed is expected to be limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. Regarding the debut, we expect the new car to arrive in 2017 with a price tag or around 42,000 euros or $59,000.
