[EN] Rumour has it: two engines for the new Honda S2000

Not long ago, Honda confirmed a successor for the beloved roadster S2000, but they kept for themselves the technical sheets or any other relevant information. The only thing that was for sure was the fact that the new roadster will feature one of the new VTEC turbo engines. Which one of it, that’s not yet for sure.

The website autocar.co.uk unveiled yesterday a rumour stating that the new S2000 will be a direct competitor for the Mazda MX-5 roadster, and its “little kid” – The Fiat 124 Spider. The newcomer will feature the same technical details like its predecessor – a rear-wheel drive roadster, featuring a front-mounted engine, positioned behind the front axle.

honda-s2000-2005

Ok, ok, but what’s the catch? Rumour has it: there will be two options – a lighter version, powered by the upcoming 1.5 litre turbo VTEC engine, with a total output of 183 HP, to compete directly with the Mazda roadster, and a second one, which will feature the beloved 2.0 Turbo VTEC from his big brother – the Civic Type-R, with a total around 300 HP, same as the CTR.

But there’s more: seems like a Type-R version will be available for the roadster, featuring some add-ons, like a limited-slip differential at the rear, six speed manual transmission, a track oriented suspension and an advanced brake system, to match up the performance and to be prepared in case Abarth will throw on the market a tuned-up version of  Fiat’s 124 little roadster.

For the moment, all of this infos are rumours, and the pictures are simply renderings from carscoops & Autocar, but we are very-VERY interested in this matter and I will keep you posted with all the updates.

[RO] Bun venit în Paradis: Honda Collection H

Nu exista loc pe acest pământ mai cu patoș pentru mine decât este Japonia. Twin Ring Motegi, mai cu seamă, celebrul circuit din inima ținutului Honda. Un loc cu totul si cu totul deosebit, destinat acestui imperiu, ale cărui baze au fost puse de celebrul Soichiro Honda, în urmă cu aproape  50 de ani (48 mai exact – 1947). 

La Motegi regăsim atât circuitul Twin Ring, destul de cunoscut de puritanii mărcii si nu numai, circuitul fiind folosit si pentru etape precum cele din cadrul Campionatului Mondial de Turisme WTCC, eveniment ce nu este destinat doar iubitorilor mărcii nipone, cât și altor pasionați de patru roți, dar și celebrul muzeu Honda Collection Hall – piesa de rezistenta as zice – despre care vom vorbi noi astăzi , muzeu ce adăposteste nu mai bine de 300 de exemplare Honda – de la celebrele monoposturi ale anilor 60 – RA272 dar și celebrele S500 sau motocicletele de seama – RC143.    

Articolul de astăzi face parte din seria realizată în colaborare cu Okutan102 și Romain Farrands, iar datoria mea este de a împărtăși cu voi istoria unui brand nu doar de seamă, dar și de tradiție în această lume a motorsportului.

Primul lucru pe care îl poți repera când pășești pe ușile acestui muzeu este senzația foarte puternică de univers paralel, un loc în care totul pare oprit în timp, exponatele privindu-te de parcă abia au ieșit de pe porțile fabricii și așteaptă să cucerească lumea întreagă. Nicicum n-ai impresia că te aflii într-un muzeu sau că mașinile de aici au fost deja scoase din producție sau se află deja la a enșpea generație. Nu. Ai impresia ca totul se petrece azi. 

11270473_700862313373475_1804648197773844120_o

Aș sta să le enumăr, dar n-are rost. Un amalgam de modele, din ce în ce mai evoluate tehnologic, practic o moștenire ce merită să fie cel puțin la fel de cunoscută și celebră precum este numele Honda. Honda Collection Hall plătește un tribut erei de glorie trăită de constructorul nipon, atât în lumea motocicletelor, de unde a pornit totul, cât și în cea a automobilelor sau a motorsportului, toate exponatele fiind păstrate parcă într-o capsulă, o mașină a timpului.

11312598_700861523373554_980364099292791245_o

Totuși, despre Honda trebuie să întelegeți ceva – într-o lume în care automobilele s-au fabricat în ideea consumului general, iar producătorii au creat modele după standardele consumatorului de rând, Soichiro Honda a fost – încă de la începuturi – concentrat pe competiție, poate mai mult decât alți producători ai momentului.

Cu toate astea, constructorul nipon s-a lovit mult timp de barierele tehnologiei – în anii 50, compania sa era cu mult depășită tehnologic de standardele occidentale. Într-o lume în care competiția era crucială, pentru a combate aceste lipsuri tehnologice, Soichiro Honda decide participarea în cadrul competiției moto World Championship Tourist Trophy Isle of Man, reușind titlul de Campion Mondial în toate categoriile aproape – 50, 125, 250, 300 și 500 cmc. 

11357308_705105999615773_8079944199013346928_o

Honda Collection Hall reprezintă practic o hartă ce însumează reușitele Honda, cu motocicletele caracteristice epocii de aur dar și automobilele ce semnează acei ani – de la legendarul cabriolet S500, despre care am povestit aici, coupe-ul S800 special conceput pentru competiție, celebrul Civic SI, cât și faimosul NSX GT2 al echipei Kunimitsu – toate acestea sunt dovada vie a implicării Honda în ramura motorsport, întrucât NSX-ul a câștigat competiția LeMans în 1995, la volanul căruia se afla nimeni altcineva decât Keiichi Tsuchiya.

Mii de mulțumiri Romain Farrands & Okutan102

[EN][VIDEO] Oldies but goldies: Donald John Campbell sets World Speed Record

More than 51 years ago, Donald John Campbell sets the astonishing World Record of 648 km/h for a four-wheeled car at Lake Eyre, in Australia. But still, John was disappointed because the car was designed for something more than 800 km/h… The car was designed by the Norris brothers, who already had designed the highly successful Bluebird K7 hydroplane (also a world-record setter), a four wheel drive and powered by a Bristol-Siddeley Proteus free turbine eying of 3320 kW. 

Ladies and gents, John Campbell and his Bluebird-Proteus CN7! 

[RO] O istorie de sapte generatii – Chevrolet Corvette

Acum mai bine de 60 de ani se nastea unul din modelele ce au scris istorie in palmaresul americanilor de la Chevrolet, in istoria automobilelor americane cat si a muscle-cars-urilor. Corvette-ul avea doar doua locuri, caroserie din fibra de sticla si o atitudine aparte, fiind clar destinat libertinului american ce se visa cu vantul fluturandu-i prin plete, cautand senzatia oferita in acele momente de micul cabrio. 2013 – sapte generatii mai tarziu, peste 1,560,000 exemplare vandute in lumea intreaga.

1953MotoramaCorvette

Deoarece Corvette a reprezentat pentru General Motors o provocare – avand deja la activ un cabrio – Chevrolet Bel Air, model ce oferea patru locuri, vestea lansarii unui nou cabrio in familia Chevrolet fiind primita de americani cu multa placere. 

Lansarea oficiala a noului Corvette in varianta finala a avut loc in cadrul salonului de la Chicago, in Martie 1953. Conceptul insa a vazut lumina zilei cateva luni mai devreme, in cadrul Motorama. 

Publicul a primit in acel moment un cabriolet atipic, cu un iz putin european, care avea sa scrie istorie in scurt timp; productia a fost gandita intial pentru maxim 150 de bucati pentru primul an, transa care s-a depasit rapid, efectiv dubandu-se productia anului 1953, cu toate ca modelul s-a vandut la un pret mult mai mare decat cel anticipat (circa 3,500 $). Influenta a fost foarte puternica venita de pe continentul european – dupa cel de-al Doilea Razboi Mondial, cand America se afla in continuare in fabricatie de “tancuri” (adica masini mari si grele), din ce in ce mai multe persoane de afaceri incep sa se indrepte masinile europene – dimensiuni reduse, consum redus, alura chic.

Harley Earl, seful divizei de Design General Motors a fost incantat de aceasta influenta europeana – exprima un puternic optimism, un val de nou, sport si tineresc – detalii atat de importante pentru publicul american, in special in aceasta perioada,  incat a propus proiectul micului Corvette sub emblema trustului. Insa conceptul a trebuit mult ajustat – in loc de inox, ce lipsea cu desavarsire datorita razboiului impotriva Koreei, s-a folosit fibra de sticla, iar pentru modelul expus la Motorama, in ’53, s-a adaptat un sasiu deja existent si un motor in linie ce producea circa 153 CP, supranumit Blue Flame. Harley si-a incercat norocul in Ianuarie 1953, la New York, in cadrul show-ului  Autorama (o expozitie ce traversa sase orase importante de pe continentul American), emotiile fiind destul de mari – nici Harley nu avea certitudinea ca modelul final va impresiona publicul american de rand astfel incat sa poata lansa oficial o noua masina  sport, unica si deosebita.

Insa asteptarile lui Harley nu aveau sa il dezamageasca – Corvette a avut un noroc neasteptat, feedback-ul primit in cadrul expozitiei de la New York fiind nu pozitiv ci mai degraba entuziast. GM lanseaza rapid modelul pe piata, reactiile competitorilor nefiind insa lipsite – 1955, Ford se revanseaza prin Thunderbird, in raspuns direct contra lui Corvette.

In 1954, productia Corvette a fost mutata in alta fabrica a concernului GM, in Saint Louis – Missouri, unde s-au produs nu mai mult nici mai putin de 3640 de bucati numai in acel an.

N-a fost nevoie de mai mult – americanii s-au indragostit iremediabil de micul Corvette. Zic micul pentru ca prima generatie Corvette masura nu mai mult de 4.2 metri lungime, 1 metru inaltime si cantarea doar 1315 kilograme. N-are rost sa il comparam cu fratiorul lui mai in varsta, Bel Air, care era semnificativ mai mare. Din punct de vedere tehnic, prima generatie Corvette venea cu faimosul motor al celor de la Chevrolet, supranumit Blue Flame – motor de 3.9L ce dezvolta circa 125 CP pe carburatie, fiind insotit de o cutie automata in doua trepte Powerglide. Cel mai interesant eveniment a avut loc in 1957, cand Corvette a primit alt motor, un short-block V8 de 4.34L si 283 CP, motor ce ofera deja un sistem optional de injectie si o cutie manuala in patru trepte de viteza. Dar nu le-a ajuns – in 1962, acelasi motor ajunge sa fie marit pana 5.3L, producand astfel 340 CP. Dar destul despre prima generatie, caci in 1963 apare cea de-a doua generatie – C2, cu o viata destul de scurta – pana in 1967.

Cea de-a doua generatie este supranumita Stingray, dupa unul din conceptele realizate de Peter Brock si Bill Mitchell (mintea geniala ce a stat in spatele Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe). C2 a fost semnificativ mai mic decat prima generatie, fiind disponibila de data asta si in varianta Coupé. Puntea spate independenta, franele pe discuri fata/spate, evacuarea dubla cromata, farurile escamotabile si un motor si mai mare, de 6,5L V8 ce dezvolta 425 CP au reprezentat doar o parte din noutatile pe care cea de-a doua generatie le-a adus. Insa ceea ce a pus atat de mult accent pe cea de-a doua generatie a fost designul futurist, de care se face vinovat doar Stingray.

Noul C2 se prezenta publicului ca si un fastback curajos, luneta divizata in doua bucati fiind doar una din caracteristicile unice pe care le-a avut la vremea respectiva.

Anul 1967 a adus pentru Corvette noul motor L88, ale carui cifre oficiale relevau 430 CP, insa neoficialii declarau circa 560 CP; doar 20 de astfel de motoare au fost montate din fabrica. In 1962, inginerul sef de la Corvette a oferit varianta Grand Sport Corvettes. limitata in 125 de bucati. Aceasta editie beneficia de un motor de 5.5L cu patru carburatoare Weber, ce dezvolta circa 550 CP al 6400 rpm. Din pacate, doar cinci au mai fost realizate, deoarece proiectul a fost stopat la scurt timp.

Cea de-a treia generatie Corvette pastreaza motorizarile de pe primele doua, invoand insa la capitolul design interior si exterior. Caci C3 a nimerit saracul in cea mai proasta perioada din istoria Americii: recesiune, pretul barilului de petrol mai mare decat oricand, puterea generala de cumparare fiind destul de mica. Insa toate aceste amanunte n-au oprit totusi vanzarile pentru ce-a de-a treia generatie Corvette la circa 53,000 bucati doar pentru anul 1979.

Corvette renuntase la denumirea de Stingray, modificarile incepand undeva prin 1973, cand usor-usor, firma americana face trecerea lenta dar sigura de la muscle car la touring, modificarile zarindu-se destul de usor la nivel de interior, confort, cand in gama isi faceau loc si motorizarile mai mici. Incepand cu 1975, gama de motoare are parte de cateva modificari, adica devine mai “eficienta” si “verde“, dupa cum se lauda producatorul. Apare astfel in lista de dotari un convertor catalitic ce impune astfel folosirea benzinei fara plumb, motorul scazand astfel in performante – cele doua motorizari disponibile fiind capabile de 165 CP si 205 CP pentru L82 – cel mai mare motor disponibil pentru micul Corvette, rezultand astfel o scadere drastica de la sutele de cai inghesuite pe vechile generatii Vette.  Intr-o incercare de a isi mai “colora” veniturile, Corvette pune mai mult accent pe versiunea cabrio, ce se dovedeste un mare fiasco, doar 12% din unitati fiind vandute in fapt, motiv pentru care productia de cabriolete se opreste in 1975.

1978 a fost anul in care micul coupe a implinit frumoasa varsta de 25 de ani si cu retragerea lui Bill Mitchell, un nume sonor in istoria modelului, asadar luand nastere doua versiuni speciale: Silver Anniversary Edition si Indy 500 Pace Car. Tot in ’78 este introdusa versiunea  fastback, ce a fost rapid primita de puritanii Corvette, lucru lesne de observat in cifre – 53,807 de unitati fiind vandute in acel an, targetand anul 1978 precum un an de referinta in privinta vanzarilor. Pentru totdeauna!

Pentru cea de-a treia generatie, lucrurile se petrec rapid – pe langa reducerile masive ale ampatamentului, motoarelor, performantelor, fabrica se muta din  Saint Louis – Missouri in Kentucky. In 1983, nici un Corvette n-a vazut lumina zilei – inginerii au hotarat sa “sara” peste acest an in pregatirile asiduue ale noului C4, ce a fost lansat anul ce a urmat – 1984. De fapt, mai bine zis, nu au stat degeaba – 44 de prototipuri au fost realizate, pentru infaptuirea noii generatii. Ce a urmat, stim cu totii.

Cea de-a patra generatie Chevrolet Corvette vine cu tam-tam in 1984, cu vesti bune pentru iubitorii modelului. Daca pana acum, primele trei generatii au reprezentat o variatie pe aceeasi tema, cu schimbari mai mult de nivel optic, ce-a de-a patra generatie Corvette vine in straie noi, complet regandit si redesenat – linia masinii este adaptata trendului anilor ’80 – fluiditatea caroseriei, dinamicitatea vizuala, motoarele noi (si din nou puternice!). Ce mai, Corvette vine in forta, sa recupereze terenul pierdut!
Motoarele au capatat din nou in ampatament – revine monstrul de 5,7 L si ai lui 375 CP, odata cu versiunea ZR-1. Insa motorul de 5700 cmc a ramas pe toata generatia, diferit a fost doar output-ul de putere, crescut fata de generatiile anterioare, insa nu cu mult, avand in vedere legislatia referitoare la emisiile de noxe se prezenta tot cameleonica. Intradevar, intre cele doua generatii, C3 si C4, modificarile sunt imense – interior, planseul de bord cu ceasuri LED, caroseria a devenit targa definitiv, fara rama centrala a plafonului, precum regasim pe generatia anterioara, transmisa de tip 4+3 (un hibrid de transmisie manuala in patru trepte, conectata la un sistem “overdrive” automat, pentru ce-a de-a doua, a treia si a patra viteza, modulul permitand astfel un comportament asemanator unei cutii automate… aproape!), problematica, ce a fost mai apoi inlocuita de o cutie manuala in sase trepte, in 1989. Corvette vine din nou in versiune cabrio in ’86, ultimul exemplar decapotabil fiind intalnit in 1975, “aventura” ce s-a terminat intr-un mare mic fiasco in acea perioada.

Totusi, aceasta generatie a avut cateva vedete in “palmares”, precum Callaway B2k Twin-Turbo (produs in perioada 1987-1991) – cu un output total de 345 CP si un cuplu nebun de 630 Nm, putere ce a crescut mai apoi la 450 CP si 831 Nm. – mult peste ce a trait generatia anterioara, adica C3. A doua, the most wonderful of all – ZR-1, a inlocuit in ’91 versiunea Twin-Turbo Callaway, desi performantele erau mult mai reduse, motorul fiind aspirat – prima generatie a ZR-1 a “reusit” sa atinga  circa 375 CP.

ZR-1 – s-a nascut din dorinta de sportivitate si customizare, un model cu acel “quelque chose”, avand sub capota un motor in spatele caruia au stat inginerii Lotus (in ’86, GM a achizitionat firma englezeasca, folosindu-se de patenturile acestora si pentru alte modele ale concernului, unul dintre ele fiind chiar Corvette). Asadar, Lotus a pus la punct LT5 (un V8 construit pe un bloc din aluminiu, cu patru axe cu came si 32 de valve), cu valori cuprinse intre 375 CP/502 Nm si 405 CP/522Nm. Insa motorul s-a dovedit a fi o gaura in bugetul companiei, in ciuda performantelor, datorita costurilor de productie destul de ridicate.  In total, 6,939 de unitati au fost vandute.

Generatia a 5-a s-a comercializat in perioada 1996 – 2004, continuand linia inovatoare inceputa de generatia anterioara; deja lupta pentru suprematie in segmentul lui Corvette se ducea pe mai multe continente – America nu mai era demult o granita. Japonezii veneau din spate cu modele deosebite si puternice, chiar daca motorizarile erau la jumatate din punct de vedere al capacitatii cilindrice.

Odata cu a 5-a generatie, General Motors a lansat si o noua motorizare – LS1 – V8, complet construit din aluminiu, de 350 CP/ 470 Nm, prilej cu care inginerii au profitat si au modificat putin structura tehnica a coupe-ului – transmisa a fost mutata pe axa din spate , repartitia greutatii fiind astfel de 50/50 atat pentru fata spate, iar LS1 a beneficiat si de o noua cutie in sase trepte de viteza, capabil sa urce Vette-ul la 282 km/h.

Corvette modifica si defectele generatiilor anterioare – varianta cabrio capata din nou portbagaj (“amanunt” disparut de prin ’62),  apare si o versiune hard top – (FRC – Fixed Roof Coupe), dar si o sumedenie de alte tehnologii ale momentului.

In 2001, amintim de succesorul lui ZR1 – Z06 – acelasi LS1 modificat, cu valori cuprinse intre 385 CP / 287 kW, motor ce primeste numele de LS6. Motorul alaturi de structura mai rigida a caroseriei transforma puternic comportamentul masinii, iar spre finele anului 2004 aduc modificari majore in raportul greutate versus performante – fiind adaugate evacuarea completa din titan cat si elementele de carbon ale caroseriei. Tragand o linie, desi in materie de cifre Z06 se situeaza pe aceeasi linie cu versiunea veche C4 ZR-1, diferentele se simt in fasnetea mezinului, fiind simtitor mai rapid decat fratele sau mai mare. 

Generatia a 6-a – C6. Primul model care renunta la farurile escamotabile (dupa 1962), imaginea generala a automobilului fiind una complet noua. Se adauga un bloc motor de 6 litri cu o putere de 400 CP / 300 kW si un cuplu de 540 Nm, suspensie modificata, habitaclu pasager marit si un timp 0-100 km de 4.2 secunde – adica mai putina economie, atat la viteza cat si in materie de carburant. Pe undeva prin 2008, GM aduce un mic refresh motorizarii – un LS3 nou, un motor de 6.2 L, 430 CP/321 kW, cu mici modificari la capitolul transmisiei, astfel incat rezultatele nu se lasa asteptate.

chevrolet-corvette-c6-11

Versiunea sport – Z06 – scoate nasul in lume in 2006, avand un motor de 7.0 L (LS7), 505 CP (377 kW) si 0-100 in 3.7 secunde. Nu trece mult timp in versiunea actuala, caci GM anunta la finele anlui 2007 versiunea noua – motor V8 LS9 – 6.2 L supraalimentat – ce dezvolta 638 cai – fiind cel mai puternic motor produs de GM pentru o masina de serie.

LS9 638 bhp (476 kW)

Incepand  cu 2011, Chevrolet ofera viitorilor proprietari de Z06 si ZR1 sa asiste in etapele de asamblare ale viitorului motor, in fabrica. 

Cea de-a saptea generatie C7 – 2014 – pana in ziua de azi. Initial fusese propusa ca si varianta anului 2011, productia sa fiind amanata cu inca 3 ani. Motor amplasat frontal, tractiune spate, versiune echipata cu un motor LT1 – 6.2L V8 455 CP (339 kW), cu optiune pentru doua tipuri de transmisie: manuala in 7 trepte sau automata in 6 trepte. Totodata, numele Stingray se poate din nou repera in palmaresul modelului, denumire trecuta in tacere in anul 1976.

[EN][VIDEO] Honda, IGNITION

Because 2015 is a fresh year for Honda – each model within Honda’s line-up is new or has been refreshed, new ventures were started – see Honda’s comeback in F1 or the HondaJet – and now we have IGNITION. 

What is Ignition, in fact? An emotive video, perfectly describing the spirit, the feeling and the passion behind the Japanese company.

[RO] O vizita in centrul perfectiunii: SPOON SPORTS, Japonia

In primul rand, inainte de a incepe acest articol, am doar o singura precizare: lumea automobilelor este o lume magica, plina de oameni pasionati si speciali, oameni care se dedica intru totul obiectului pasiunii lor. Romain – initiatorul proiectului Okutan102 – este fix omul despre care vorbesc, care a strabatut lumea in lung si in lat in cautarea povestilor, oamenilor sau obiectelor de legenda. Dintr-un  nou capitol al sectiunii Autopedia bazat pe istoria brandului Honda cat si a celor conexe, va prezint azi prima parte  – vizita oficiala la sediul Spoon Sports din Japonia.

In Europa, definitia unei modificari aduse unei masini se rezuma la o combinatie de piese, numere si specificatii, rezultatul scontat fiind de cele mai multe ori “Harder, better, faster, stronger”. De cele mai multe ori se alege puterea in defavoarea altor detalii ori elementele de design exterior, menite sa schimbe aspectul autoturismului, fara a afecta (sau ajuta) performanta acestuia. 

Insa pe cealalta parte se regasesc pasionatii, oamenii care isi petrec sute de ore testand combinatii, cautand solutia perfecta pentru a aduce un echilibru intre toate modificarile aduse autoturismului pe care il reprezinta, astfel incat rezultatul sa nu fie doar o cifra, cat si o senzatie aparte. 

Prin 1988, Tatsuru Ichishima – savantul nebun din spatele Spoon Sports –  are ideea  destul de traznita sa puna pirostriile companiei ce astazi poarta blazonul Spoon Sports. Fiind un fost pilot de teste oficial al Honda Co. Japan, Tatsuru a crezut mereu cu tarie in ideea de ECHILIBRU. O masina nu are nevoie sa fie puternica cat are nevoie sa fie ECHILIBRATA si bine proportionata, fiecare surub avand rolul lui in toata aceasta istorie. Ba mai mult de atat, el a militat mereu spre modificarile cat mai in conformitate cu originalul, de aceea astazi el unul din singurii tuneri din zona Honda care si-a restrans paleta de produse doar la elemente de performanta, esentiale, necesare. Sau dupa cum el bine a zis intr-un interviu mai vechi, s-a rezumat mereu la imbunatatirea unei Honde, asa cum ar fi trebuit ea sa iasa din fabrica. 

Filozofia din spatele Spoon Sports – echilibrul, calitatea ingineriei si seriozitatea acestuia au dus numele de Spoon Sports printre tunerii oficiali aliniati de catre Honda direct. 

In afara Japoniei, numele de Spoon Sports a putut fi auzit undeva incepand cu sfarsitul anilor ’90, cand motorul de pe celebrul EK9 semnat de Spoon Sports – B16B – a reusit performanta celor 11,000 rpm, in Statele Unite devenind rapid de tot o vedeta, iar vanzarile tunerului au luat avant pe tot continentul. Europa l-a primit cu bratele deschise, doar ca putin mai tarziu, prin anii 2000, cu ocazia jocului Gran Turismo 2, unde printre masini gaseai Spoon Civic Type-R EK9, Spoon Integra Type-R DC2 cat si Spoon S2000. 

Spoon nu si-a uitat totusi activitatea preferata – motorsportul – in ultimii ani, numele companiei nipone putand fi regasit prin competitiile 24 Hours of Nurburgring (Honda S2000), 25 Hours of Thunderhill (Honda FIT & CR-Z), sau multe alte participari in cadrul Super Taikyu, cea mai mare serie de curse de anduranta din Japonia.

Motorsportul reprezinta crema cremelor pentru Spoon, fiind totusi cea mai buna modalitate de testare in mediu si timp real a pieselor gandite, create si manufacturate de Spoon, inainte de a incepe instalarea si comercializarea acestora la nivel global. 

In orice caz, atmosfera din cadrul sediului Spoon Sports cat si a garajului Type One lasa o amprenta foarte clara atat a filozofiei lui Tatsuru cat si a activitatii grupului, experienta acestei vizite fiind mai mult decat una speciala.

[EN] Rare finds: video footage of the RA270 F1 prototype

Well hidden but not forgotten, this old footage of the RA270 Prototype was discovered in a warehouse from Saitama Prefecture, Japan – this is known as the only footage of the prototyped vehicle. 

The RA270 is presented while tested on the Suzuka circuit, while the video is supposed to be dated around 18 February of that year. 

But the lovely part of this video is not the RA, nor than the fact that the prototype is tested by Yoshio Nakamura – later to be the first manager of Honda’s Formula 1 racing and soon after executive of the company, while Soichiro Honda can be observed in a corner,  watching closely the reaction of this machinery. No, the greatest thing is that this video represents a great moment in the history of the brand – this was the time when a line of legends was born.  I mean when the RA was born.

How was, in fact, the RA born? Well, Honda wasn’t actually planning in entering the Formula 1 directly, as the  RA270 prototype was originally a project meant to be sold to the British Team Lotus. The engines, nothing more. But at one point, the deal fell and Soichiro decided to have the RA270 transformed into reality and to put his foot into this world – the world of racing machines.  

“Whether that horsepower could be achieved was not the question. He just told us we must produce this much power in order to win. For example, the code name for the engine, RA270, was assigned by Mr. Honda, who probably wanted to remind us that the engine had to produce 270 horsepower.”

When Soichiro Honda was asked by Yoshiro Nakamura whether he wanted to enter the F1 circuit, he is said to have replied, “I don’t know if we can do it or not, but I sure as hell want to try!” 

But about the beautiful history of the Honda’s racing pedigree in another article.

P.s. seems that the videotape was well hidden so that not even the Honda Co. personnel knew about it. The footage was discovered almost a month ago, and officially released by Honda.

[EN] 2017 CR-Z – A sport hybrid? Yes, but with turbo this time. [RUMOR]

I guess it’s not a surprise for anybody that the CR-Z hybrid was quite a fail for the Honda group – planned as the revival of the CR-X (as it was expected), but with a grandma heart inside – the hybrid 125 HP engine. No sport here, indeed.

So the Japanese constructor decided to kill the production of the actual model, after five years of existence. But don’t worry  folks, the little CR-Z is going to make a strong comeback around 2017, with a totally new output and vision on the line.

Although the information is at the “rumor” state, the new CR-Z will possibly be following ALMOST the same recipe like his youngest brother – the Civic Type-R – and will feature a turbo charged 1.5 liter direct injection VTEC engine,  paired with the current CR-Z’s Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid system. To top up the performance, which is said to be around a total of 280 HP, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is also said to have replaced both the CVT and manual options of the current CR-Z.

If this concept is going to see the ray of light, we will probably see next year, at the Tokyo Auto Show. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

[EN][PRESS RELEASE] Honda sets new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for fuel efficiency with the new Civic Tourer

Honda sets new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for fuel efficiency, averaging 2.82 litres per 100km (100.31mpg) in 13,498km (8,387 mile) drive across 24 EU countries.

Honda has set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for ‘Lowest fuel consumption – all 24 contiguous EU countries (all cars)’, recording an average 2.82 litres per 100km (100.31mpg) over 13,498km (8,387 miles), in a 25 day drive across all 24 EU contiguous countries.

Behind the wheel of a Honda Civic Tourer 1.6 i-DTEC for the entire journey were two members of Honda’s European Research & Development (R&D) team, Fergal McGrath and Julian Warren, who took on the challenge to further demonstrate the impressive real-world fuel economy of the Tourer.

The remarkable distance travelled is similar to the team driving to Australia from their home in the UK, stopping just nine times to refuel. The car achieved an incredible average 1500km (932 miles) on each tank of fuel, at a total fuel cost for the whole journey of just 645 Euros* (£459).

The team set out on their epic road trip from Aalst, Belgium, on Monday June 1st, navigating the continent in a clockwise direction. They returned to their start point on Thursday June 25th, recording the incredible fuel economy figures which exceed the Tourer’s quoted efficiency of 3.8 litres per 100km (74.3mpg), by more than 25%.

Fergal McGrath comments: “It was tough, but we really enjoyed it, and setting this new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title has made all of the hard work worthwhile. This was a huge team effort so I’d like to thank everyone involved for all of their commitment and support. After spending so much time behind the wheel Julian and I are just happy to be back behind our desks for a while!”

The official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title is ‘Lowest Fuel Consumption – all 24 contiguous EU countries’, measured in litres per 100km and miles per gallon calculated over the entire journey.

Under the rules the same two drivers must be in the car for the whole journey, giving Fergal and Julian, Honda R&D colleagues of some 18 years and based in the UK, the challenge of driving an average of approximately 600km, taking around 7.5 hours, each day.

Based on strict and rigorous guidelines, the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title attempt required the car to enter each of the 24 countries specified, collecting a range of evidence including a fuel/mileage logbook, GPS readings, video and photographs and independent witness signatures to prove that it has done so. To ensure accurate monitoring of the route, journey time and distance driven, the record car was fitted with a tracking device, provided by fleet telematics and stolen vehicle recovery expert, TRACKER (part of the Tantalum Corporation).

Under the rules of the record title attempt the car must be a standard model in every respect, with no modifications to create an advantage, to replicate ‘real world’ conditions. This was judged by independent witnesses at the beginning and end of the attempt. Fuelling was carried out at regular filling stations, with the tank filled to the maximum at each stop to ensure no weight advantage. Additionally, tyres were inflated to the recommended pressures and the wheel alignment set to factory specification to represent the experience of the regular customer.

The team, both amateur drivers, were also keen to show that through adopting some simple but very effective driving techniques, anybody could achieve such remarkable fuel economy. They simply used some very logical methods including careful and sensible route planning, driving smoothly and consistently without harsh acceleration or braking, anticipating the road conditions ahead, carrying no unnecessary weight, and ensuring that the car was correctly maintained at all times. Driving speed was always within the law and keeping up with traffic conditions.

Kate Saxton, Manager – PR Communications at Honda Motor Europe Ltd comments: “This is an incredible achievement and the team should all be very proud of the efforts that they have put in to set this new GUINNESS WORLD RECORD. Driving the equivalent distance from their home in the UK to Australia in just 25 days is a huge challenge very few would take on. The fuel economy figures are remarkable – particularly when you consider that this is not a small car, but a tourer with class-leading load space and vast practicality.”

[NEWS RELEASE] They R here!

They R here! First Civic Type R models roll off the line at Honda’s European manufacturing facility in Swindon, UK

Today hundreds of production staff and management from Honda’s European car manufacturing facility in Swindon, UK, joined invited guests to celebrate the first production models of the hotly-anticipated Civic Type R rolling off the line.

Breaking cover at Honda of the UK Manufacturing (HUM) to a high-energy fanfare of lights and music, the first three models arrived in patriotic red, white and blue respectively as they left the line heading to Honda dealerships across Europe.

Addressing those gathered for the event, Soichiro Takizawa, Managing Director at HUM, took the opportunity to thank staff for their continued commitment and hard work, expressing the shared pride felt by all at HUM in seeing the all-new British-built Civic Type R in the metal.

The ceremony topped a very positive few months for HUM, following an announcement in March confirming that it will become the global production hub for Honda’s flagship Civic five door model, extending its reach beyond European shores. Reflecting this achievement in his address to those attending, Mr Takizawa spoke of renewed optimism for the plant – regarding it as a major milestone and testament to the knowledge and experience of staff who have been building Civics at the plant for more than twenty years.

Mr Takizawa commented: “The new Civic Type R is an imperative model for Honda, representing our racing spirit and demonstrating our commitment to innovation and passion. We are extremely proud to be the only manufacturer of the Civic Type R in the world. Our high standards have earned us this privilege and this is testament to the continued commitment of our Associates.”

Billed as a ‘Race car for the road’, the new Honda Civic Type R is the most extreme and high-performing model to ever wear the acclaimed ‘Red H’ badge. With a high-revving all-new two litre VTEC TURBO engine, advanced new suspension systems, stand-out function-led styling and a new +R track mode it is set to bring new standards to Europe’s high-performance front-wheel drive hatchback segment. Peak power output is 306BHP, with the engine red-lining at 7,000rpm, delivering a class-leading top speed of 167mph.

The new Honda Civic Type R will be built exclusively for Europe at HUM. The announcement made in March that HUM will become the global production hub for the Civic five door model will see a further investment of £200million for the plant, bringing total investment to £2.2billion since 1985, and confirming Honda’s long-term commitment to manufacturing in the UK and Europe.

[EN][PRESS RELEASE] Honda reveals new Technical details about the production of the NSX

In advance of the market launch of the highly anticipated next generation NSX, the engineers leading the supercar’s development shared new technical details and design strategies with the automotive engineering community at the SAE 2015 World Congress and Exhibition. Additional information about the team’s efforts to achieve a true “New Sports Experience” included details of the NSX’s world’s first body construction process that helped create a multi-material space frame resulting in class-leading body rigidity, the advanced total airflow management system and an update on NSX’s power unit specifications.

Ted Klaus, chief engineer and global development leader of the new NSX, introduced key powertrain, body and dynamic performance engineers who shared new product and technical details in their related areas of the development. The unprecedented sharing of technical details prior to the car’s market introduction reflects the desire of the NSX development team and the company to inspire the imagination of automotive and technology enthusiasts along with the next generation of engineers.

“Our goal is to create something altogether new and exciting, something that advances the concept of a next generation supercar in the spirit of the original NSX,” said Klaus. “In order to provide NSX-level value, we needed to push ourselves to experiment with, refine and then realize many new technologies.

Significant technical revelations concerning the NSX included:

  • The NSX includes Acura’s first use of a revolutionary multi-material space frame design that delivers class-leading body rigidity while remaining lightweight.
  • World’s first automotive application of new ablation casting1 technology resulting in world-class body rigidity for ultimate handling and control.
  • World’s first use of a three-dimensionally formed, ultra-high-strength steel A-pillar, supporting class-leading rigidity and crash performance while providing outstanding outward visibility.
  • The NSX achieves top-in-class aerodynamics targets without the use of active aerodynamic elements, while its three-motor Sport Hybrid power unit is cooled through 10 heat exchangers all thanks to a total airflow management strategy that maximises the flow of air around and through the NSX.
  • Displacement of the NSX’s all-new twin turbo V-6 engine was confirmed to be 3.5 litres.
  • The NSX will mark the introduction of the most capable and highest torque capacity Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system in Acura’s history.
  • The latest proprietary logic advances Acura’s two decades-long pursuit of Super Handling that proactively responds to driver inputs, allowing the NSX to achieve a new level of line trace while at the same time intelligently supporting the driver in changing environments.

Mugen has always been like a Samurai when it comes to the precision of its engines. In the end, it’s the pedigree of the racing heritage that obliges to this kind of attention to details. That’s why the factory has been built also by the same principles – it was normal, I guess.

The whole Machining Center is built on a giant pad that absorbs any vibrations caused by seismic tremors that could cause the sensitive machinery to go out of calibration.

[RO] Honda Sport – sau cum se naste o linie de campioni

Ma gandesc la S2000 ca fiind unul din cele mai cunoscute modele Honda din lume, poate dupa NSX. Nu doar cunoscut, cat si una din cele mai ravnite creatii semnate Honda. Totusi, roadsterul are ceva istorie in spate, cat si o linie destul de puternica de precedesori ce  merita amintita – iar puritanii marcii stiu bine despre ce vorbesc: S500, S600 si S800. Desi apartenenta S2000-ului la linie este un subiect foarte discutat de catre iubitorii marcii, n-avem cum sa il renegam – asa ca aducem in fata istoria unei linii – linia S.

10446177775_c6f79912bc_b La finele anilor ’50, unul din cei mai cunoscuti constructori de motociclete japonez decide sa se lanseze in productia de automobile, o miscare ce nu ramane fara ecou – Ministerul Japonez al Comertului si al Industriei promoveaza aceasta actiune lansata de Soichiro Honda, incurajand astfel pentru constructia unui vehicul destinat cetateanului de rand, avand un pret sub 150,000 yeni. Se naste astfel o citadina berlina in patru locuri, insa Soichiro isi doreste mai mult – anul 1958 vine cu o miscare brusca din partea lui Honda – isi doreste prea mult un model sport, incropind astfel prototipul XA190. Dupa alti trei ani de munca asidua si de perfectionare alaturi de Yoshio Nakamura, prototipul ia forma unui cabriolet, fiind prezentat oficial in Iunie 1962, in cadrul celei de-a 11-a conventii Honda, sub numele de S360. pho_03 Roadsterul isi face astfel intrarea timid pe pista de la Suzuka, la volanul lui aflandu-se in acea clipa chiar  Soichiro Honda, in stanga caruia se afla mana lui dreapta – Yoshio Nakamura – seful proiectului micului roadster. S360 reprezinta pentru Honda un nou inceput, un proiect curajos pe o piata destul de restrictiva, insa Soichiro a facut ce a facut el in general – a riscat. Iar rezultatul muncii sale il stim cu totii. S360 purta sub haine un motor DOHC alimentat de patru carburatoare, generand un numar de circa 33 CP la circa 9,000 rpm, un numar de rotatii incredibil pentru acele timpuri, alt factor curios pentru acei ani fiind acela ca  masura o greutate totala de numai 510 kg.

Prezentat la Tokyo in Octombrie 1962, alaturi de S500 si T360, micul roadster S360 nu apuca sa vada insa linia de productie,  in cele din urma niponii renuntand la model in favoarea urmatorului descendent in linie – S500. Ei, despre S500 se pot zice multe-multe –  este probabil un alt model bine-cunoscut Honda cat si destul de iubit chiar si in ziua de astazi; aflat in productie o perioada destul de scurta de timp – intre 1963 si 1964, S500 este primul model roadster ce a vazut lumina zilei si cea a showroom-urilor Honda, fiind totusi un model destul de rar intalnit in zilele noastre – doar 1400 de bucati iesind pe poarta fabricii. 7113353345_55614e092d_o Desi optic vorbind, diferentele sunt destul de mici intre cele doua modele – S360 si S500, cea din urma este caracterizata de o imagine si o prestanta mai sport decat precedenta. Masurand circa 3,3 m lungime si 1,2 m inaltime, S500 era vizibil mult mai mare decat primul roadster al niponilor, insa motorul instalat – AS280E (o versiune updatata a lui AS250E montat pe S360), 531 cmc, construit fiind complet din aluminiu – genera circa 44 CP la 8,000 rpm, cu 11 CP mai mult decat pe varianta precedenta, motorul fiind tot DOHC, dar avand constructie diferita si un singur carburator – orizontal Keihin de tip CVB. Datorita motorului usor dar destul de puternic pentru perioada respectiva, S500 devine unul din cele mai ravnite roadster-uri de pe piata in acel moment. Micul S500 isi inscrie astfel in CV date importante, precum o viteza maxima de circa 130 km/h cat si tractiune spate – da, acest “mic” amanunt a fost pastrat si respectat pana in zilele noastre, devenind o caracteristica speciala a liniei S. Juniorul S500 a fost comercializat pana in Septembrie 1967, intr-un numar de 1353 de bucati – insa cel mai important amanunt este acela ca S500 a fost produs exclusiv RHD (right hand drive), pentru piata Japoniei, singurele doua modele ce aveau volanul amplasat pe partea stanga a autovehiculului au fost produse strict pentru showroom-urile de prezentare – autovehiculul nu a fost niciodata exportat. 8412056230_8456ce4401_o Repede-repede sau pentru a nu lasa un loc gol in lista sa, Honda inlocuieste rapid modelul cu cel deja dezvoltat inca din ’64 – S600. Zic dezvoltat deja pentru ca niponii deja il comercializau in acelasi timp cu micul S500, insa S600 a fost mai norocos se pare, roadsterul reusind sa doboare granitele, fiind expusa in cadrul Salonului de la Paris, bucurandu-se astfel nu numai de comercializare in Europa, cat si in Canada sau in Australia. Honda S600 devine astfel primul model Honda exportat, fapt ce ajuta la cresterea vertiginoasa a vanzarilor – fata de S500, ce a fost comercializat in circa 1400 de bucati, iata ca S600 mai adauga un zero in coada acelei cifre, vanzarile totale fiind de circa 13,084 bucati (bine, nu chiar un zero, insa destul de aproape, oricum). 6933239524_f84d4a263b_o Pentru ca fiecare model Honda din acea perioada aducea cate o noutate sau o inovatie, iata ca nici S600 nu a dezamagit – motorul AS285 a fost marit pana la 606 cmc, generand astfel circa 57 CP/5,700 rpm – pe cand zona rosie a turometrului este ridicata la suma rotunda de 9,500 rpm. Astfel, cantarind numai 690 kg, micul S600 accelereaza de la 0 – 100 km/h intr-un numar de 18,7 secunde, atingand o viteza maxima de 145 km/h. Privite astazi, aceste cifre sunt mici, nimic nu pare impresionant, insa pentru anii ’60, in piata auto, Honda scria istorie cu aceste mici roadsters, insa nu numai.  11879230905_7c41dda85b_b S600 este primul model Honda ce beneficiaza de doua tipuri de caroserie – roadster si coupe – cel din urma fiind introdus in anul 1965, crescand greutatea totala la 715 kg, cu 20 kg in plus fata de versiunea roadster.  Productia acestuia ia sfarsit in anul 1966, fiind la fel de repede inlocuit de S800. S800 este mult mai masiv decat versiunea precedenta – cu circa 35mm mai lung si 20 kg mai greu, modelul este disponibil in aceeasi tipologie precum S600 – roadster cat si coupe. Si de aceasta data, schimbarile nu sunt masive la nivel de caroserie, insa ochiul fin al iubitorului marcii observa cu lejeritate grila cromata fata ce inglobeaza  de acum logo-ul Honda, planseul de bord finisat intr-un negru mat, stopurile isi pierd forma rotunda ce existase pana acum pe modelele precedente, cele noi fiind acum alungite. Motorul – AS800E – este marit acum pana la 791 cmc fata de generatia precedenta, generand un numar de circa 70 CP / 8,000 rpm. 2971512970_2cc9cdee1c_o Performantele micului S800 ridica stacheta Honda – de la 0 la 100 km/h in 13,7 secunde si distanta de la 0 – 400 m in 16,9 secunde, atingand astfel o viteza maxima de 160 km/h. In 1967,  micul cabriolet este declarat cel mai rapid autoturism de productie in serie, cu motor sub 1 litru.   Nu este de mirare ca masina devine astfel un hit, fiind exportata cu succes atat pe piata Europeana cat si pe cea Americana – de fapt, piata Americana este si de vina pentru schimbarile radicale de care a suferit – atat spatele si stopurile au fost restilizate pentru a raspunde la exigentele normelor de securitate rutiera de la vremea respectiva, semanlizarile laterale si-au facut repede loc in aripile fata, franarea de tip tambur de pe puntea fata a fost inlocuita cu discuri in echiparea de serie si lista continua. 10470547336_223c727e82_k Pentru Europa, micul S800 a reprezentat un model ce oferea clientilor un raport foarte bun calitate – pret pentru vremea respectiva, ba mai mult de atat, Honda punea la bataie si o lista destul de lunga de dotari pentru micul European Mai bine de 11,000 de unitati au fost vandute la nivel mondial – o diferenta ca de la cer la pamant intre  primul nascut al liniei sport – S500 – ce s-a comercializat in doar 1500 de exemplare, si penultimul model – S800. Zic penultimul caci dupa el a urmat mult iubitul S2000. Si ultimul S din linie. Zic din linie, pentru ca apartenenta lui S2000 la aceasta este discutabila – puritanii marcii stiu bine despre ce vorbesc. Cred ca singurul amanunt impartit cu S-urile mai sus numite este ideea de cabriolet, soft-top si tractiune, caci vorbim de doua categorii diferite aici – S360, S500, S600 cat si S800 faceau parte din categoria specifica Japoniei – Kei car.  Pe de alta parte, S2000 este un roadster in cea mai pura forma posibila. Intradevar,  el este un nomenclator, avand unele  detalii tehnice asemanatoare cu cele ale clasicelor dar, cand tragem linia de final, intre primele S-uri si S2000 diferenta este destul de evidenta, trecand peste asemanarile de ordin optic.  9460993991_1151e87a8c_b S2000 – aici pot scrie multe, dar multe de tot. O masina cu totul diferita de tot ce construise Honda pana atunci – lansata in 1998, din dorinta de a imbunatati linia – japonezii tocmai “adormeau” productia targa-ului delSol, ramanand astfel un loc liber in lista de modele, ce se cerea “umplut”. Ba mai mult de atat, Honda avea nevoie de acel model sport, accesibil publicului de rand,  Bine, nu a rasarit peste noapte – in 1995, Honda lansa la Tokyo un prototip numit SSM ( Sports Study Model), prima aparitie a modelului final avand loc in Aprilie 1999, la Geneva, cu ocazia aniversarii a 50 de ani de existenta Honda, unde roadsterul a castigat prompt premiul “The Cabrio of the Year 1999“. Cum? E destul de simplu – atat proiectul SSM cat si S2000 au avut acel quelque-chose – aici dam vina pe chief designer-ul ei – Shigeru Uehara. shigeru-uehara_japanese_automotive_engineer Acum, facand o mica paranteaza – sa va spun ceva despre Shigeru – personajul nostru cheie: nu numai ca este vinovat de design-ul S2000-ului,  dar si al intregului proiect NSX. Da, el este “savantul nebun” ce a reusit sa dea viata unei legende (pardon, doua legende) ce dainuie si in ziua de astazi. Ba mai mult de atat, Shigeru a fost sef de proiect si pentru Integra DC2, insa acolo contributia lui a fost mai redusa pe parte de design. Dar despre Integra, cu o alta ocazie.

Shigeru a reusit sa inglobeze prin design-ul a doua modele ceea ce multi au dat gres, de-a lungul timpului. Nu ma credeti? Priviti un NSX, astazi, la mai bine de 24 de ani de la lansare. Acelasi lucru este valabil si pentru S2000 – model ce inca intoarce capete dupa 15 ani de viata ai modelului. Revenind, de data asta la ultimul exemplar al liniei S – roadsterul S2000 a fost disponibil la vanzare timp de 10 ani – intre 1999 si 2009, beneficiand de doua versiuni – AP1, cea initiala, urmata apoi de facelift-ul AP2, in 2004. De amintit este totusi ca, in ciuda update-ului, schimbarile au fost subtile, mai mult de detaliu, roadsterul pastrandu-si identitatea pana la final. Dupa succesul inregistrat cu SSM in 1995, Honda revine cu versiunea finala in 1998, cu ocazia aniversarii celor 50 de ani de existenta Honda. In Aprilie 1999, succesorul liniei S este in sfarsit prezentat la nivel mondial, intr-o formula aproape finala – dimensiunile finale au fost revizuite pentru a pastra totusi atenticitatea liniei S, incat aceasta sa corespunda modelelor precedente, nascute in anii ’60. Singurul aspect unde nu s-a putut modifica foarte mult a fost totusi lungimea – S2000 depasea astfel 4 m. Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 22.38.09 Sasiul roadsterului a necesitat multa munca si atentie din partea inginerilor – datorita structurii in X,  S2000 nu este doar foarte rigid, cat si mult mai rezistent in cazul unei coliziuni, amanunt ce atarna destul de greu, mai ales in anii ’90, cand SSM isi scotea nasul in societate.  Mai mult de atat, sasiul a fost dezvoltat special pentru a atinge acelasi nivel de rigiditate al unei masini compacte – tunelul frontal are aceeasi inaltime precum rama sasiului stanga cat si cea dreapta – “trident structure” – a, greutatea fiind dispersata pe praguri, tunel si structura podelei Honda_S2000_high_X-bone_frame Revenind la S2000, pentru a asigura o repartizare ideala a maselor, motorul a fost atent studiat pentru a corespunde ingineriilor din spatele proiectului – amplasat longitudinal pe pozitie central-fata, sub capota din aluminiu, acesta corespunde mult filozofiei Honda – mic, dar eficient. Luandu-si numele de cod F20C, motorul masura circa 1,998 cmc DOHC, in 4 cilindrii, producand nu mai putin de 240 CP / 8300 rpm (varianta produsa pentru Europa, caci cea speciala pentru piata japoneza urca cu inca 7 CP, datorita compresiei crescute).Doua motorizari au fost disponibile in toata viata modelului – F20C si F22C1, total diferite de celelalte motoare din serie F detinute de Honda (regasite pe multe modele Accord din anii ’90). tumblr_m6azrwPjYY1qk65n6o2_1280 Ba mai mult de atat, F20C a castigat de nenumarate ori premiul “Best Engine”, fiind chiar si in ziua de astazi privit cu admiratie de catre puritanii marcii si nu numai. Totusi, acest fapt nu este de mirare, intrucat randamentul oferit de cei 125 CP / per litru este destul de remarcabil pentru un motor atmosferic de productie in masa, fiind numit oficial cel mai puternic motor aspirat al momentului. Insa nu reprezenta nimic nou pentru Honda – inginerii mai atinsesera deja Jackpotul cu micul CRX si al sau 1,6 DOHC 160 CP si Integra Type-R – 1,8 DOHC si 190 CP.  Inimioara aceasta salbatica era legata la o cutie manuala in sase trepte de viteza, dotata cu un LSD Torsten. Toate acestea, plus greutatea redusa de doar 1,240 kg duc la un raport 0-100 km/h de doar 6,2 secunde. Iar pentru a pune punctul pe “i” mult mai apasat, in Iulie 2000, Honda lanseaza pe piata japoneza o versiune limitata VGS (Variable Gear ratio Steering – aka Servodirectie Asistata Variabila), noua tehnologie aparand in premiera mondiala pe un automobil de serie prin acest s2000 Type-V (versiune exclusiv Japonia), acest model reprezentand si una din putinele dovezi efective ale acestei noi tehnologii.

Comercializarea modelului ia start in Aprilie 2009, de-a lungul anilor avand parte de diferite versiuni speciale, imbunatatiri la nivel de suspensie si directie, structura caroseriei si diverse alte amanunte. In 2004 productia modelului se muta in fabrica de la Suzuka, S2000 beneficiaza de un facelift anul urmator, alaturi de o noua motorizare – F22C – 2156 cmc si 242 CP/7800 rpm. Odata cu motorizarea, s2000 se mai pricopseste si cu diferite tehnologii “vedeta” ale momentului, precum drive-by-wire – un mic aspect care a starnit controverse printre iubitorii modelului, pro si contra, urmat apoi in 2007 de sistemul VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist – Sistemul de Stabilitate al Vehiculului), sistem ce face parte din pachetul tehnologiilor dedicate sigurantei active, o caracteristica tot mai importanta pentru constructorii auto dedicata diminuarii riscului accidentelor. Cum Honda fusese primul producator auto nipon ce-si echipase automobilele sale de serie cu ABS (denumirea in primii ani fiind A.L.B.) si totodata primul constructor auto din lume ce dezvoltase un sistem de control al tractiunii pentru un automobil cu tractiune fata, urmatorul pe lista a fost – fireste – S2000 – micul roadster cu tractiune spate.

Tot in 2007, Honda lanseaza versiunea Type-S – suspensie mai rigida, kit aerodinamic special, sasiu rigidizat, ba chiar si greutatea redusa – circa 40 kg mai usoara decat versiunea de fabrica. Din pacate, versiunea Type-S ramane doar pe piata nipona, iar in 2007, in Statele Unite aparand  o versiune asemanatoare Type-S – S2000 CR – impartind aproape toate calitatile sus-numitei, cat si un hardtop din aluminiu.

Piata Europeana ramane in schimb “ferita” de modele sport, primind doar variante speciale, care mai de care mai exclusive. Pana in 2009, data ultimei lansari oficiale, S2000 cunoaste si imbraca diferite versiuni, pentru Europa, SUA sau Japonia – cele pentru piata de export fiind mult mai bine echipate decat cele destinate pietii nipone, precum 40th Anniversary edition, in 2004, special lansata pentru a sarbatorii 40 de ani de existenta Honda pe piata frantuzeasca – versiune ce a beneficiat de un hardtop si tapiterie de piele de culoare bej, 2000 RJ – un omagiu adus pilotilor F1 Rubens Barrichello si Jenson Button, cat si ultima versiune S2000 lansata pe piata, in 2009 – Ultimate Edition – editie disponibila exclusiv in culoarea Grandprix White, jante gri-graphit cat si interior din piele rosie. Ah, si hardtop, sa nu uitam de hardtop.

A urmat o perioada de tacere. Lunga de cativa ani. Dar Honda ne-a promis ca linia S v-a reveni pe podium, alaturi de celelalte modele sportive ale companiei – Civic Type-R si NSX. Cele doua sunt deja vedete astazi, asa ca speram sa auzim ceva de bine si de linia S, cat de curand. Stati pe aproape.     10470734983_a66b607dff_k
