Custom widebody Honda S2000 – Click above for image gallery


This European Honda S2000 roadster has been subjected to a rather controversial-looking widebody conversion that replaces the Japanese design's crisp lines with an amalgam of shapes and ideas. The front end receives headlamps that may or may not have been borrowed from a Mercedes-Benz SLK and the car's entire aesthetic has been radically altered – even the closer-to-stock rear end has a bigger bumper and spoiler.

It isn't clear if this is a one-off job or if it's a kit that we haven't seen before, but our part, we'll stick with Honda's design, thank you very much. However, should you live in Belgium and feel differently, it's up for sale online for 25,000 euros, or about $36k in American greenbacks. The party continues in the gallery below.

      Looks like somebody misses the early 90's

        Maybe they never saw the sign...

      the front looks like a mixture between the miata and an old-school porsche

      Even if this somehow cost "negative Euros", it was still a bad idea. What the hell was wrong with the S2000 styling to begin with? That car might be worth about $15K in stock form, but as-is I might take it off their hands for $5K. It'll take serious cash to undo the damage they've done.

      Someone apparently never had one of those ball toys with the holes and the different shaped blocks, because that rear bumper definitely needs some work.

      And the front end looks like a late '90s M-B interpretation of the Boxster. In this instance, not good at all.

      yeah... beacuse a 2.2 liter engine really needs dual 5" exhaust tips.

      I'm sure a lot of hard work went into it - but they really assed it up.

      The S2K was a great bang for the buck car, I'm not sure why one would want to have this bodykit.

      Looks like a frog.

      Or...some kind of amphibious boatcar thing.

      But either way, looks like an amphibian. Yuck.

      I bustard child of a drunk MB SLK and Honda 2000.
      • 5 Years Ago
      That's nothing. I'll try to get a pic of a Miata around here that has a body kit that tries to make it look like a mini Aston Martin.

      aaahhh!!! my eyes!!!!

      Not a very good fit between the hood and the front fenders/bumper.

      This car has Belgian dealer plates. the S2000 costs about 40 000 Euro over there when it's new, + 5000 for registration tax, then add some parts (some Mercedes SLK parts apparently) and paint, and labour cost and the price will easily top 50k. I personally would only want to pay 10k for this monstrocity even if it's brand new, and even then I would have to think really really really hard about it.

      If you want an SLK then simply buy one, it'll be cheaper and better looking.
