From a source “close to Honda, the marketing team is seriously considering to revive this sporty car. Honda is celebrating its anniversary next year, and this is a great celebration occasion to introduce the all-new S2000. According to rumors, the new vehicle will be more potent than the last 2009 model rolled in Japan. It should also feature the same proportions as the 20th Anniversary Concept, which was displayed at the Tokyo Auto Salon last January.
2022 Honda S2000 Renderings
The exterior styling of the newest 2022 Honda S2000 should be undoubtedly more attractive than before. Like the 20th Anniversary Concept, which was introduced at the Tokyo Auto Salon last January, we expect the new Honda S2000 to keep the same proportions.
However, according to renderings, styling will be fresh, featuring completely different front fascia. Generally, the manufacturer added a more sporty hood and slimmer LED headlights. Besides, the new Honda S2000 should also be lighter than before, thanks to use of aluminum and carbon fiber materials. Overall, the new two-seat car will emphasize a much more sporting appearance, and we should expect a vast ranger of optional wheels and tires.
Apparently, the upcoming 2022 Honda S2000 will feature a more modern cabin than its predecessor. Generally, we expect the seating layout to remain the same, offering more comfort. Reportedly, the new roadster should also introduce some innovative technology and better safety.
Nonetheless, we are optimistic that many of the design elements will undoubtedly be borrowed from the latest Acura NSX supercar. Anyway, standard features must include at least keyless entry/start, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated seats, leather/Alcantara upholstery, and ambient cabin lighting. Safety features like forward-collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, and the multi-view rear camera could also be standard as well.
2022 Honda S2000 Engine Specs
Under the hood, the new 2022 Honda S2000 will reportedly feature some sort of hybrid system or an all-electric setup. It will most likely use a modified version of the 2.0-liter turbo-four that powers Honda Civic Type R. This engine produces 320 hp and 295 lb-ft, but with a lighter S2000, it might develop 350 hp around.
The Honda Civic Type R also offers a six-speed manual transmission that will be supposedly carried over to the new S2000. Overall, expect a potent setup and great performances as well.
Release Date, Price
The all-new 2022 Honda S2000 will probably happen sometime next year, featuring more attractive styling. Besides, we should also expect a more comfortable cabin and plenty of new techs. Generally, it’s more than likely that the new S 2000 will feature plenty of cues from some of Honda’s existing models.
The Japanese sports car segment is fascinating, and Honda offers many remarkable cars. For the next year, we also expect the release of the long-awaited Nissan 400Z model.
