"The street-tuned S2000 by Amuse."
The S2000 R1 from Amuse, a tuner with a reputation for building circuit-spec racers, is all about taking the fun of a race car to the streets and extracting even more driving pleasure from the stock S2000 by putting the car on a strict diet.
Rather than pare back on amenities like the audio system and air conditioning, the R1 achieves its lighter weight by swapping out materials. The hood, roof, trunk lid, and rear wing are all made from carbon composites. The exhaust manifold is made of thin stainless steel and the exhaust pipes are not titanium. The wheels and seats have also been swapped out for lighter replacements making total weight savings an impressive 110 kg.
Very little has been changed regarding the R1's engine, save for a reprogrammed computer to adjust for the advancement of the VTEC variable valve-timing system in keeping with the character of the new exhaust manifold. The R1 has been outfitted with "S" tires and an original Bilstein suspension kit which makes the suspension soft enough that the car's balance is not thrown off when the high-performance rubber is replaced with normal street tires.
The S2000 R1 has high performance limits but behaves with grace even when those limits are exceeded, making it an ideal choice for testing out your own driving abilities.
A light-tuned version of the Amuse S2000 is also available with a front lip spoiler as well as exhaust and coilover suspension.
