The Fast and Furious franchise has featured some amazing cars, and the bright pink Honda S2000 from 2 Fast 2 Furious is one of the most iconic. Doug DeMuro recently had the opportunity to check it out.
The first thing that catches the eye in this S2000 is its paint scheme and Veilside bodykit. DeMuro notes that the car was painted by hand and includes detailed airbrushing across the exterior that was also done by hand. He says the paint still looks to be in excellent condition to this day and that’s something I can attest to as I saw this very S2000 at the Petersen Automotive Museum about 18 months ago.
The bodykit also appears to have been reasonably well made and fitted to the exterior of the Japanese sports car with the proper diligence and care. The same, though, cannot be said about the interior.
As the S2000 only had a few seconds of screen time where the interior was visible, the builders of the car weren’t all that concerned with quality. With that in mind, the door panels, center console, seats, and the shift boot are clad in ‘plush’ bathmats that looked nice on camera, but are very cheap. In addition, the interior also features a host of fake gauges and a low-resolution screen on the dashboard.
There is one thing going for the Honda, however, and that is the fact that it is supercharged. On paper that sounds good, but in reality, the car doesn’t appear to run particularly well.
