The hardcore, track-ready Honda S2000 Club Racer unveiled back in April at the New York Auto turned quite a few heads, and it looks like many of its visual cues are headed to Japan in the form of the JDM S2000 Type-S. A teaser for the S2000 Type-S is now up on the automaker's Japanese website showing the JDM car wearing the same wheels, bodywork, and rear wing as the USDM Club Racer. In contrast to the CR, however, the Type-S appears to have retained its folding soft top. The Club Racer has had that hardware removed for weight reasons and wears a cover with integrated fairings (or a removable aluminum hardtop) instead. You can compare the two cars by looking at the galleries below. The Honda Japan website doesn't give any specific Type-S details at the moment, but we grabbed screenshots of the images made available so far. Expect to see the S2000 Type-S revealed for all next month at the Tokyo Motor Show.

      That spoiler does look ludicrous. However, it is functional and does add downforce.

      wow, i mean, im just left speechless. can you get any more riced-out than this ugly thing? what the hell is that ugly thing sticking out of hte back of the trunk? is that supposed to be a spoiler? it looks like more like a tumor to me...

      so maybe the color was exactly what turned me off on the Club Racer edition.

      because this Silver JDM Type-S actually looks nice to me.

      either way, i'll stay proud with my '03.
      looking forward to throwing V-signs (for VTEC)
      @ CR owners that happen to cruise around stateside (probably won't be too many though)

      I don't know, you guys, I like the styling on this one. Yes, the spoiler is extreme, but the front grill is perhaps the hottest that I've seen on a car in this class. Too bad the back (sans spoiler) looks so BORING.

      @testa: haha. I totally agree with you.

      SWEET..just what i've always wanted.
      A hardcore track car for the vertically challenged.

      Let me guess... it has 255hp and about 147 fl lbs of torque with about 20 ft lbs available at 3500 rpm.

      and they are doing all they can to keep the displacement as small as possible so that ppl can argue on forums... "it has 175 hp / ltr which is much better than blah blah.."

      Riced out?

      The new term is NASCARED OUT?


      I'm tired of these NARCAR-ERS with thier stupid wings.

      Is that a snowboard stuck to the back? I think Id rather take a 4x4 than a RWD Sportscar to the slopes.

      It looks too American with the Camel humps. Take those off and lose the spoiler. These cars are gems with fantastic drive-train. If the spoiler is functional, a person can live with it.
