Am a big fan of the Honda S2000. Went in a series 1 and was impressed by the music as we closed in on the 9000rpm redline, and even more so by the handling. Add terrific looks with an unburstable engine that loves to be revved and you have one of the greats.
Here is my convertible finished in special order Gulf orange with tobacco interior, one of 989 2.4S Targas made for 1972. Fuel injection, plastic plenum chambers for lightness, titanium wheel nuts, five speed gearbox, body coloured integral bumpers and front airdam. All in 1972! On a timed run on closed roads were were clocked at 140 mph over a standing 1.3 mile. There was still more to come. We are part way through a complete restoration. Happily the factory still supplies new parts for 1972 models. New panels fitted and repaint in original colour completed. Now time to put eveything back to together and to fix as we go along...
