Today I saw a Thunderbird with that same identical styled humps! Yes, the same ... the very same! I walked over and they do make it look neater than a plastic tarp cover. But not nearly as nice and real as our's.

That wing ... ouch! It looks like what you'd see in many high school parking lots. I certainly think it looks tacky and would not want to be see getting into a vehicle with that "thing" stuck on the trunk.

So in summation, I would not wait eight months for it like I did for this car.

"Lucifer" is my name!

Really don't care for it but I don't race SCCA. It'll be interesting how this does on the racetrack but that's all it's for, well that and selling a few extra of the old model while they get ready to replace it. Probably a good marketing plan even if it is pretty niche.

Not Their Best Work!

This S2000 is terrible. It looks like they tried to stick on "cool things" to make an old car style competitive. The front and rear spoilers are 2nd rate. The humps behind the seats don't flow with the rest of the body - they are dumb looking.

Too bad, I liked the older S2000's a lot. This new treatment makes them look tacky and cheap IMO.

The humps are a copy from the Veliside bodykit that are so popular among S2000 owners. The ugly wing is actually functional and provides downforce similar to the evo's at 100mph +

Wow, that is ricehideous. If Honda was going for that look, they could have completed it by making some of the body parts like the bumper or fender unpainted. All said, I bet it drives nice though. lol.
