The The Honda S2000 may be an iconic sports car but that didn’t stop the owner of this particular one from turning it into a rat rod unlike any other.
this S2000 has been playing social media lately and was brought to life by Instagram user pepdoesit. While details on the build are limited, the results speak for themselves.
One thing we do know about the car is that the original S2000 chassis has been replaced with one from Village Customs. This frame serves as the base for the S2000 Rat Rod and allows it to sit just a few millimeters off the pavement.
The owner too replaced the original four-cylinder Honda engine with what sounds like a small displacement V8. Indeed, the sports car has undergone such a radical transformation that the only indication that it actually began life as an S2000 are the doors, windshield and rear body panels. All other parts seem to have been changed.
As cool as it is to have the engine completely exposed, our favorite aspect of the car is the wheels. There’s a set of black wire wheels with thin tires up front, and huge black wire wheels with beefier tires in the back that actually sit higher than the rear fender.
Given that the body seems to be the only aspect of the S2000 that has been retained, the car certainly won’t drive like it used to.
