1000HP Honda S2000 Burns Rubber

Drag Race

Burning rubber at the drag strip and with 1,000 horsepower. Another reason to love the Honda S2000.

Our regular readers should be aware by now that CarBuzz is a huge fan of the dearly departed Honda S2000, and desperately hopes that one day the Japanese automaker will decide to resurrect the car with a (non-hybrid) replacement. The Mazda Miata is an equally capable roadster, but the S2000 has that hard to beat 240 horsepower VTEC four-pot under its hood, which the owner of this particular model has heavily modified and turbocharged to give it a staggering 1,000 hp.

Unsurprisingly, when he takes the insanely powerful S2000 to the dragstrip for a quarter-mile sprint, it has a very close call with a wall. As you'll see from the video of the run, generating all those horses is often a lot easier than controlling them.
