The Japanese based automaker Honda is planning to introduce a successor for the Honda S200 which will hit the market in 2017.
A spiritual successor for one of the most desired Japanese sports cars, the Honda S2000, is said to be making its way onto the market over the next three years. The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet, but according to a report published by the guys at Auto Express, rumors on a successor will materialize in 2017. The new generation of the model will slot between the S660 and the NSX and it will come with an engine taken from the future Civic Type R.
The brand new Honda S2000 will be powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged unit, which will produce a total output of approximately 350 HP (261 kW). Our source is also saying that a hybrid technology, which will be developed in collaboration with the McLaren Formula 1 Team, will be adopted to the sports car. This means that the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint will take 5 seconds and the average fuel consumption of the model will stand at approximately 7L / 100km (40 mpg UK / 33.3 mpg US). Prices for the next Honda S2000 will start at around 42,000 euros.
