Honda's S2000 developed a reception as a great handling sports car over the past decade. Unfortunately for fans of torque, its high-revving four cylinder was found severely lacking. One S2000 owner has come up with a solution, and it's also greener than your average Honda roadster. We don't really know many details about this car or the owner, but it has apparently been converted to electric drive. The owner recently took his first drive after hooking up the batteries and has posted the video on YouTube. If anyone out there knows the owner of this car, please have him contact ABG and fill us in on the details of this story. In the meantime you can check out the video after the jump.

Update: Thanks to reader matthijs for jumping in with a link to a blog that documents the development of this 2003 S2000. The owner actually used lithium ion cells from Thundersky totalling 23 kWh, so it will be interesting to see how the car performs.
