Honda S2000 Dragster Does a Wheelie

Japanese carmakers are returning slowly but surely to offering the sportscars that made them famous. At the same time, fans of cars like the legendary S2000 are sticking with what they’ve got, despite the german onslaught.

There’s a very good reason for that, and it the fact that a BMW 3-Series can’t do a wheelie. “But neither can the Honda S2000,” you might say. That’s not completely true, something you’ll discover after watching this video.

This 2JZ Powered Honda S2000 from AD Turbo is no joke. It’s so powerful that it manages to do a wheelie of the line, lifting the front tires cleanly into the air. But that’s not all, as the mental car puts down a time of just 8.6 seconds for the quarter mile, hinting that it’s got over 1000 horsepower.
