2003 Honda S2000

The AP1 was one of those extremely alluring cars for me. Growing up, it was like the ultimate hardcore Miata. The exotic 9000 RPM F20C was what dreams were made of. Such an exciting engine. Even though I built my 1999 All Motor ITB Miata to be a proper S2000 competitor, but sometimes nothing quite satisfies like the real deal.
