2003 Honda S2000 - April Fools

This Fool's Running A Honda Two-Thousand!
What do you do when you want to own a Porsche GT3, a Honda Civic, a Honda S2000 and a Nissan Silvia but can only afford one car? Ask any racer, any real racer, and they'll tell you - you build your own! And that's exactly what Bryan Holman enlisted JE Import Performance to do.

The task at hand was simple - combine the best aspect from each car. Equipped with nothing but a buck knife, the team at Faze 2 Unlimited tracked down, killed and subsequently skinned a GT3 RS for its hide. The foglights were recovered from one of the EKs used in the insurance commercials (you know, the ones where the door gets smashed off). Finally a power plant had to be found for this S2K.

The only problem was that SR20s were sure to pull a premium a week before race wars. Fortunately, Bryan wouldn't be caught granny-shifting, not double-clutching like he should, ever again. Sikky Manufacturing specifically designed a kit to place the Silvia heart safely at home in the bay. With tons of custom work by JE Import Performance this beast came to life. The result is a one-of-a-kind EK9S13S2000GT3... not a bad way to spend ten-thousand dollars!
