The S2000 soldiers on as Honda's hottest whip with nary a significant nip/tuck or overhaul since it was introduced over seven years ago. It's inevitable demise is in the cards, but Honda's still proud of its little 2.0-liter terror and there's at least one more special edition planned before it goes. The S2000 RJ celebrates Honda's history in F1 racing, and as such features the signatures of Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button, Honda Racing's pair of F1 drivers, on the audio head-unit's flip down lid. Apparently Honda thinks the S2000 is already F1 enough, so no changes were made to the car's actual performance hardware. Instead we get Pearly White Premium paint as an exclusive paint color and a red and black interior. An Alex Zanardi NSX this is not. Regardless, Honda will only be producing 50 copies of the S2000 RJ (just like the Alex Zanardi NSX), all of which will be sold in just France, Italy and Spain for quite a premium.

      SherbornSean - It's only 2.2L in the U.S. Rest of the world still gets the 2.0 and 9000rpm redline.

      "...with nary a significant nip/tuck or overhaul since it was introduced over seven years ago."

      Except for the engine, transmission ratios, wheels, suspension settings, headlights, taillights, rear window, front bumper, console, radio cover, etc.

      Should have been painted in Championship White.
      Great car, too bad they never introducted a true hardtop/coupe version.

      Another very nice car we will never see in the 'States. I love the look of those Hondas, they have aged with a lot of style... But they are starting to look old after all these years.

      Kamil,
      Thanks for the clarification. Nevermind!

      Ironically, I think the S2000 is now sporting a 2.2L motor. S2200?
