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.
