The Spoon S2000 Race Car is a race-tuned car by Spoon. A racing version of the Spoon S2000 (and by association, the Honda S2000), it appears in all mainline Gran Turismo games since Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec and in Gran Turismo 4 Prologue and Gran Turismo PSP, but is not available in Gran Turismo Sport.

In-game descriptionEdit

One of the purest sports cars to ever come out of Japan was the Honda S2000. Possessing the spirit of the classic S800 roadster, the S2000 was light, fast and exciting to drive. Spoon took all that was good about the S2000 and made it even better.

Spoon, established in Tokyo in 1988, is considered the prominent Honda tuner and race car builder in Japan. The business, which started out making racing computers, branched out to producing customized parts and racing cars for Honda.

In 1999, Spoon created an S2000 race car and entered it in a nine-hour endurance race at Tsukuba Circuit. The car finished 1st in class and 2nd overall. The next year, with driver Tetsu Ikuzawa, Spoon entered the 24 Hours of Nürburgring with an S2000 decorated with the Japanese flag, similar to Ikuzawa's S800 race car from 1967. He finished 1st in class and 32nd overall.

In Japan, the Spoon S2000's main battlefield was the Super Taikyu endurance race series. Because Super Taikyu cars were primarily designated as touring cars, the S2000 had to obtain special permission to compete in this series and adhere to weight handicaps.

Nevertheless, the S2000 flourished in Class 4. Because of its rigid and lightweight body, the Spoon S2000 exhibited excellent handling, and while the body could not be modified due to vehicle restrictions, the engine was tuned to produce much more than the stock car's 247 BHP.

  • On Gran Turismo 2, one of 2 racing liveries for the Honda S2000 '99 resembles this car.
  • Also on GT2, this car was seen with a rag top instead of a hardtop. This is due to the car being race modified from the aforementioned Honda S2000 '99.
