Roberto Figueroa 2004 Honda S2000
Originally this car was supposed to just be a cool daily driver because I had a 1996 Mazda Miata as a show car/project car, but after a couple of weeks of driving the s2000 around I realized it was everything the Miata was missing. The power, stability, modernness, and space was all there with the s2000

2004 Honda S2000
I am from Miami, Florida, 24 years of age, and a full-time student studying Mechanical Engineering.
What or who got you interested in cars?
The reason behind me having an interest or obsession with cars is because of my uncle which is my dad's twin brother, he was a car enthusiast, he owned a boosted em1 and when I would come to visit him, I’d ask him to take me on hour-long drives just because the sound of the car would bring a smile to my face.
Why this Car?
I got this car because my uncle’s dream car was an s2000, which he owned for a short period of time and had to give up because he was moving to Texas. You know what they say “everything is bigger in Texas” so he got rid of his dream car to blend in once he made it to Texas and purchased a lifted jeep wrangler. About a year later, he fell asleep behind the wheel, and the lifted jeep went up a hill and flipped and he lost his life. So, I got this car in memory of him, because if it was not for him, I would not see cars in the same light as I do now.
Why did you build this Car?
Originally this car was supposed to just be a cool daily driver because I had a 1996 Mazda Miata as a show car/project car, but after a couple of weeks of driving the s2000 around I realized it was everything the Miata was missing. The power, stability, modernness, and space was all there with the s2000.
What does it feel like owning your car?
Owning this car gives me a certain type of joy that is unexplainable, I think most car guys feel the same way about their cars. It is such a cool feeling realizing you're causing traffic because people are slowing down to just staring at your car. One of the funniest questions usually is “why are your wheels sideways, is it safe?” then explaining to them everything that goes into being able to achieve negative camber to that degree safely, and what not is awesome because you have the opportunity to teach people something new and show them a world they did not even know existed.
Some advice I would give someone considering buying an s2000 would be to take your time finding one because they are getting expensive very quickly. There are deals out there though so do not rush the process of finding or building the car. Another tip is to BUILD IT HOW YOU LIKE, at the end of the day it is your car and the only person who needs to like it is you.
What do you think makes your car Unique?
Something that makes my car unique is that I went with an OEM plus approach to the build, all OEM accessories even the very sought after OEM hardtop that’s getting difficult to come by, and of course the excessive amount of camber.

I bought the car stock just with an aftermarket hks dual exhaust, but I really wanted the OEM look and feel and sold the exhaust to be able to get an OEM s2000 exhaust. Since then I have bagged the car with airlift 3p, built oz racing futuras, installed front and rear truhart upper control arms, redid the soft top with a black cloth top instead of the vinyl top it comes with, OEM 2 piece floor mats, weighted countersunk shift knob, OEM duckbill, side strakes, and front lip, OEM hardtop, OEM cr clear fender lights, clear headlight diffusers, skar audio door speakers connected to a pioneer amp, r1 concept brake rotors and pads, injen intake, and an izzie racing secondary air pump delete.
Who did the work?
Everything was done at home by me in my garage except the airlift installation and fender rolling which was done by one of the only people I trust touching my car Kenny over at fitment gurus
My next plans with the car are to repaint the car, boost it, shave and tuck the engine bay, and rebuild the wheels.
What has the car scene brought you?
The car scene has given me some of my best friends, and the best memories from just working on cars with the homies or shows such as Simply Clean in Daytona Beach Florida.
