The Story

A car that has no business being as fast as it is. This K-Series swap Honda S2000 is anything but pretty, but it's also anything but slow. Featuring a fully built K-Series turbocharged engine with over 480 horsepower; AlexMartini (me) has big plans for this car.. I’ve known about this car for over 7 years. In fact, I filmed this car for a montage video back when I was starting an old channel called “Automotive Millennial” in 2016. Since that time, this car went through some changes until it reached a garage and slowly started to cease operation. In July 2021 we picked this up and immediately took it to Road America to see what the high-compression natural aspirated 220 horsepower motor could do. Instead of it being awesome, it sucked and ended up breaking by the end of the day. So instead of limping it along, we gave new life into this car and 10 months later, it’s back! Swapping out the high-compression k series with a hand-built KA24 K-Series turbocharged motor, this thing scoots.
