    Honda S2000 Adds Performance and Refinement for 2006

    September 9, 2005 -- Torrance, Calif. -- Widely considered the quintessential roadster-style sports car and performance icon for the Honda brand, the S2000 combines uncompromising racetrack ready performance with everyday usability. For 2006 Honda builds on that premise with significant updates to further improve performance and refinement.

    Notable changes to the 2006 S2000 include electronic Drive-by-Wire (DBW) Throttle System(TM), Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA(R)), maintenance minder system, standard headrest speakers, an outside temperature gauge, revised seat and console designs, a unique new alloy wheel design, and the addition of Laguna Blue Pearl as an exterior color.

    "Never content to leave well-enough alone, we're committed to maintaining the S2000's performance and technological leadership in its segment," said John Mendel, senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "It's a car designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, and it represents the ultimate expression of the fun-to-drive characteristic found in all Honda vehicles."

    The S2000's renowned high-revving, 2.2-liter, DOHC, VTEC(TM) (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) 4-cylinder engine remains the pinnacle of naturally aspirated performance technology, delivering 237 horsepower at 7,800 rpm and 162 lb-ft. of torque ant 6,800 rpm. Perfectly complimenting the engine's output characteristics is a compact, longitudinally mounted, close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission that features a direct linkage for precise shifting and short throws.

    For 2006, the S2000 comes equipped with a Drive-by-Wire throttle control system eliminating the need for a mechanical connection between the throttle pedal and the engine. This enables the continuous monitoring and adjustment of throttle pedal sensitivity to create an ideal match between throttle response and driving conditions. The system also manages the S2000's cruise control function for greater precision.

    Also new for 2006 is Honda's Vehicle Stability Assist system, making the S2000 more stable and forgiving than ever during street driving or in inclement weather conditions. Working in concert with the Drive-by-Wire system, VSA continuously monitors yaw rate, steering input, throttle input, and braking pressure to determine if the car is following its driver's intended path, and can independently coordinate each of the disk brakes through the 4-channel anti-lock brake system, along with the throttle, to enhance vehicle stability. While this serves to effectively enhance driver control during acceleration, braking, and cornering, the system can be disabled with the touch of a button when conditions warrant it. To help provide optimum stopping power, the braking system also features Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist.

    The S2000's rear-wheel-drive chassis and powertrain layout results in a 50/50 front/rear weight distribution for perfect balance when cornering, while its hybrid monocoque body and "high X-bone frame" results in exceptional structural rigidity. Combined with a front and rear double wishbone suspension, precise electric power steering, and a torque-sensing limited slip differential, the end result is a complete, no compromise, performance package for the enthusiast driver.

    Standard features for the S2000 include a power retractable convertible top, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, leather trimmed seats, and High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps, now with daytime running lights. An aluminum hardtop and XM Satellite Radio are available as dealer installed options.

    For 2006, the S2000 cockpit receives a new seat design and an updated console. Racecar style digital gauges and driver oriented control layout characterize the Formula 1 inspired interior, while new headrest speakers enhance audio enjoyment during top-down driving. Additional equipment includes an AM/FM stereo CD player, power windows, power door locks, keyless entry, and a new outside temperature gauge. Also new for 2006 is a maintenance minder system that notifies the driver when service is required based on driving conditions and oil life rather than on fixed time or mileage intervals and daytime running lamps.

    Laguna Blue Pearl is a new color for 2006 that compliments the S2000's sharp-edged roadster styling, and joins the existing palate of colors, including Silverstone Metallic, Sebring Silver, New Formula Red, Suzuka Blue Metallic, Rio Yellow Pearl, Berlina Black, and Grand Prix White.

    September 9, 2005 -- Torrance, Calif. -- The S2000 receives significant enhancements for 2006 with the addition of an electronic Drive-by-Wire throttle control and Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA). Widely considered the quintessential roadster-style sports car and performance icon for the Honda brand, the S2000 combines uncompromising racetrack-ready performance with everyday usability. For 2006, Honda builds on that foundationwith significant updates to further improve performance and refinement.

    I love the S2K...but it is losing the initial sharpness the AP1 offered. Having driven both offerings...the AP2 has gone soft...

    I mean the TQ is a nice addition to ANY Honda...but man the old F20C was a SWEET mill mang...

    SWEEEEEEET

    Although not as hardcore as the AP1, I am extremely happy with these changes. I can live with this car as my primary daily driver.

    First mod, lowering springs, drop it likes it's hot.

    Most likely it is the exact same engine as before. The entire Honda/Acura lineup has been re rated using the new SAE horsepower rating system. Other manufacturers are starting to sing on as well. This way all the manufacturers will use the same test and the HP will be measured more consistently. RSX-S has gone from 210hp to 201hp even tho it's the exact same engine.

    Don't worry about that. Spoon lip, Air Walker sides, drop it on 19's, throw on the hardtop, all on Grand Prix White, it'll be a deadly STOOKY

    The S2k looks good (don't see much in the way of changes, but what do I know about hondas ) but the accord has to be one of the most boring cars to look at. Man, a sunfire has more visual appeal.....

    If you like RWD you better get a hold of an S2000. The rumored replacement is to be a FWD 2+2 with suicide doors like the RX-8, with a 250 hp 4-cyl.

    I'm really liking the S nisen even though I'm not a big fan of roadsters. Put a CF Mugen Hardtop on, and you got yourself a car! Not as peppy as an AP1, but still has all the elements of a true rwd sports car.
