After a long time of stagnation and hybrid car orientations, Honda finally turns to the one in which it was one of the best and for what many are the most desirable and memorable – sports, affordable cars. After the announcement of the new Civic Type R, and the new, revolutionary NSX, rumors are arising that in 2018 the successor to the legendary sports roadster will be the newest 2019 Honda S2000. However, it is more than a mere heiress, because according to announcements, the new model will have a centrally positioned engine, a four-wheel drive, most likely in the hybrid drive, as well as a “hard” roof. The new 2019 Honda S2000 looks much more attractive in nature. A really nice, muscular cabriolet with great sound.

It is expected that the 2019 Honda S2000 will have a design similar to the NSKS and S660 models. The car will have the look of a combined muscular and sporty look with an old classic look.
The body will be made of aluminum carbon fibers. This will make it possible to improve the aerodynamics of the vehicle, all due to the reduction of car weight. On the central front of the vehicle there will be a large black grid, LED headlights, sports front bumper, sports cover and new fog lights. The rear part of the new 2019 Honda S2000 will have a curtain bumper. Also, elegant exhaust pipe and a long rear axle.

The advanced version is offered optionally (at the appropriate charge), which also applies to the installation of the air conditioner. The audio-video equipment includes an AM / FM stereo radio, a satellite radio, a CD player and eight built-in speakers, all together giving sound and content of great quality.
