Honda S2000 (AP1)
2.0L I-4 F20C
Automatic & manual
The S2000 was presented in 1999 for the 2000 model year and was given the undercarriage assignment of “AP1”. It includes a front mid-motor, back wheel-drive design with power conveyed by a 1,997 cc (122 cu in) inline four-chamber DOHC-VTEC motor. The motor (codenamed F20C) produces power yields of 177–184 kW (241–250 PS; 237–247 hp), and 208–218 N⋅m (153–161 lbf⋅ft) of force contingent upon the objective market. The motor is mated to a six-speed manual transmission and Torsen restricted slip differential. The S2000 accomplished what Honda asserted as the most noteworthy explicit yield of a regularly suctioned creation vehicle motor on the planet. The most impressive form; the JDM F20C was evaluated at 184 kW (250 PS; 247 hp) or 92 kW (125 PS; 123 hp) per liter because of a higher 11.7:1 pressure ratio.
2004 AP2 and 2000 AP1 model S2000s from over—the AP1 has OEM front lip, side strakes, and back spoiler.

Outstanding highlights incorporate free twofold wishbone suspension, electrically helped directing and coordinated move bands. The vehicle had 16 in (41 cm) wheels with Bridgestone Potenza S-02 tires prepared. The conservative and lightweight motor, mounted altogether behind the front hub, permit the S2000 to accomplish a 50:50 front/back weight circulation and lower rotational dormancy. An electrically fueled vinyl top with interior fabric coating and plastic back window was standard, with an aluminum hardtop accessible as a discretionary extra (in 2001). Honda at first offered the S2000 in Berlina Black, New Formula Red, Grand Prix White, and Silverstone Metallic outside hues in the US homegrown market.
