Edo’s S2000 – Wide & fast!

The Honda S2000 is a roadster equipped with a powerful 2.0 liter VTEC engine. Some would say this is the perfect car for a road trip to the Alps. Then there are also people who want to make it in to a racecar. In that particular case we are talking about Edo. In the past years he collected a lot of parts to make his S2000 in to a track weapon. Special car, special location. My friend Georgi lead us to this awesome skatepark underneath the highway ‘A9′ near Amsterdam and it gave us some pretty cool pictures.

You are not creating a track tool by making it look fast, you have to combine the right parts. To fit the AP racing 6 piston big brakes Edo needed some bigger wheels, and to fit the bigger Cosmis wheels he needed to add some wide-body fenders. These upgrades are not just for show, but pure because he needs them. But why do you need such big brakes on a S2000 you ask? Well, check the picture below!

Yes sir, The F20C1 engine has been fitted with a Kraftwerks supercharger and makes around 400 whp. With the supercharger you gain a lot of instant torque which a standard Honda engine lacks. After the photoshoot Edo took me out for a ride and you definitely feel the difference, especially in the low rpm range. I just love superchargers!

If the wide arches or the wing weren’t “in-your-face” enough, the the blue Cusco 7 point cage will be. The cage changes the complete car into a real track machine. And besides the function, it looks really cool! The KW 3 suspension has been fitted to make the car even better handling in corners.

Function over form. All to make the car go faster around the race tracks!

A fully track built car, but also very useful on the road. And what a presence it has! Wherever you go, everyone looks at it and want to know more about the car. It’s not often that you see such a big wing on a road-legal car. Edo is always looking for other ways to make his car even better and we would love to see the progression of his project. I’m sure we will see this car a lot more, this is no garage queen!
