The Honda s2000 was first released in 1999 to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary. The car was designed as a homage to its predecessors the s500, s600 and s800. But what set this S badged Honda apart from the others was the high revving and highly reliable naturally aspirated inline 4 VTEC engine. An engine which has been praised by motoring journalists over the years.

When Anthony Beljan decided to purchase the s2000, it wasn’t because of the engine. Anthony loved the way the s2000 looked from factory and thought it would be a car he could have fun with, especially as a project car that he can turn into a track ready car. He always loved the way track cars were built and the aggressive styling they possessed.

Unlike others who have dreamed of owning a specific car as a child or having searched heaven and earth to find just the right one, Anthony’s purchase of the car was straight forward. He purchased the car completely stock with silver paint in 2013. But there was a set-back a couple months into owning the car. Anthony found out that the car had been rolled in quite a serious accident and was considered a write off. Instead of panicking and tossing the car aside, he decided this wasn’t going to ruin his experience of owning the car and was even more determined to turn the s2000 into his ideal track car.

Once this set-back was put aside, Anthony began the journey of turning the s2000 into the beast you see today. The desire to truly build a unique track ready car was solidified when Anthony completed his first modification. After installing a Hondata Kpro Ecu and seeing the performance increase that the car produced on the dyno, Anthony was instantly hooked to continue building the car.

The next step in the build process was to work on the exhaust and the exterior. A 70mm titanium exhaust with Cat delete/Tegiwa Extractors was fitted, which gave the car a beautiful sound. To fit within the budget back in 2013, but to still tick off the exterior work which Anthony wanted, he bought Rota Grid wheels with an Ap1 Fibreglass lip to slightly enhance the look.

Anthony took a break from the car for a while and went overseas. When he came back, he decided it was time for the car to receive a boost. He turned to the expertise from the guys at BYP Racing. The guys (Benny and Jimmy Tran) highly recommended supercharging the car as Anthony was looking to track the car in the future. They also changed the fuel over to E85, upgraded the clutch and deleted the aircon for that extra power.

When the car made 350kw at the rear wheels @9000rpms(Rotrex Supercharged 18psi.) Anthony was over the moon. The results lead him to have some more time off from the build to help him save up some money. While he was saving, Anthony began to completely change the look of the car. This involved installing a Voltex racing front bumper, Voltex side skirts, Spoon fenders, rear over fenders and rear diffuser. Anthony personally cut /welded the rear over fenders and installed them. Most these parts sat in his garage while he sourced out a big brake kit and wheels to match the setup. This followed by reinforcing the boot lid as the wing would cause it to bend. Anthony finally found the right wheels and ordered in some CCW’s and a Stoptech brake system which he felt really completed the look.

Every part of the car was a different colour at this point, so Anthony went to Jason Julian at JJ Performance Smash Repairs. Jason worked on the car, after he and Anthony settled on painting the s2000 with a Subaru 61k paint colour.

Once the paint was completed Anthony installed a few little cosmetic touches to make the car pop. He ordered in AP2 Front Headlights and went with the Car Shop Glow rear tail lights. The S2000 was basically done at this point but Anthony wanted a little more power without spending a huge amount of money… so the last piece of the puzzle was to add some Nos. The car was now complete.

Although Anthony bought car in 2013 with the intention of taking it to the track, the S2000 hasn’t hit the track yet. With the patience in the build and getting the car to where he wanted to be, Anthony has set his goals to take this beautifully crafted s2000 to the track in 2019.

Although Anthony worked on some of the fabrication of the external body parts himself, he wanted to give a huge thank you to BYP Racing (Benny/Jimmy Tran) for making the car what it is today and JJ Performance Smash Repairs (Jason Julian) for the outstanding paint work.

This Honda s2000 is truly a labour of love and is set for big things in the future.
