Honda S2000 Roadster Charges Ahead in 2003

Torrance, Calif. 08/16/2002 -- Coming off a record sales year and its third consecutive year on Car and Driver Magazine's list of "10Best Cars," the popular Honda S2000 roadster returns for another award-winning year.
With racing-inspired performance and handling, the S2000 provides an exhilarating experience behind the wheel for any driver. The 240-horsepower, 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine boasts the greatest output of any normally aspirated production vehicle on the road today. Propelling the roadster from 0-60 in under six seconds, the potent 16-valve, DOHC VTEC (Variable Timing and Lift Electronic Control) engine meets California's Low Emissions Vehicle (LEV) standard. Sophisticated electric-assist power steering allows for rapid response and lighter overall weight. Additionally, a high-capacity clutch, featured in the 6-speed manual transmission, results in exceptionally smooth and quiet shifting.

The S2000's excellent road manners are the result of an optimum 50/50 weight distribution, racing-inspired in-wheel double wishbone suspension and highly rigid body structure. Marked by the high central tunnel that runs down the center of the cockpit and serves as the backbone of the vehicle, the S2000's "X-bone frame" provides enhanced bending and torsional rigidity.

The central design theme of the S2000's interior is performance. Designed after a Formula One race car, the interior features a driver-oriented control layout, with a digital instrument panel and engine start button reminiscent of modern racing cars.

The S2000's exterior features the following colors: Berlina Black, Grand Prix White, New Formula Red, Sebring Silver Metallic, Silverstone Metallic, Spa Yellow and Suzuka Blue Metallic. New for the 2003 is tan added as an interior color for Grand Prix White.

For 2002, the S2000 earned accolades from both the automotive press and public alike. The awards included:

Car and Driver - "10 Best"
AMI Auto World - "Best of 2002" (Luxury Convertibles)
Automobile Magazine - "Readers' Choice All-Star"
