The Honda S2000 Modulo Climax will debut at the Tokyo Auto Salon

The Honda S2000 Modulo Climax has been revealed ahead of its Tokyo Auto Salon debut later this month. Despite the fact that the S2000 is no longer on sale, Honda has allowed Modulo, its official aftermarket parts and accessories manufacturer, to give its evergreen roadster a cosmetic overhaul.

Honda describes the S2000 Modulo Climax as “featuring cutting-edge aeroform design and a chic interior.” The show car is not mechanically modified, so retains the same high-revving 2.0-litre naturally aspirated engine that appealed in the regular S2000.

The S2000 Modulo bodykit includes a redesigned front bumper, which includes a chrome strip which runs across it, a heavily sculpted rear bumper, and a pair of winglets on the bootlid. Inside, the interior has been given some black and burgundy leather trim.

Alongside the special S2000, Honda will also show tuned versions of its tiny N-ONE kei car that’s sold in Japan and uprated versions of the CR-V SUV and CR-Z hybrid, the latter tuned by Honda’s performance arm Mugen.

What a very nice job Honda have done on the S2000, looks a winner, will eat in to Mazda sales.

With Honda reliability & build quality it will do very well.

The chrome strip looks like a leftover bit of Xmas tinsel, but it's good to see some development work on a classic Honda.

I'd like to see Honda echoing the likes of Porsche, by refining its products more, rather than redesigning them completely, with unfortunate results like the plain-Jane last-gen Prelude, and the pugly new Euro-Civic.

It wont have a chance to eat into Mazda sales or anything else come to that, because the S2000 is not being manufactured any more!

I've always loved the S2000 and this one looks great, though I wouldn't spend new car money on an old car.

So Honda are branching out into custom cars..... What next, chrome wheel spinners, furry dice?
