THE MIGHTY MARVEL THAT IS THE HONDA F20C

It would be a gross understatement to say Honda achieved something awesome with the creation of the F20C engine that powered the first-generation S2000. A marvel of automotive engineering that produced 123.5hp per liter, it served as the highest power output of any mass-production naturally aspirated piston engine in a car priced under $100,000. It held the crown for many years and was finally dethroned in 2010 by the Ferrari 458 Italia, whose engine produced 124.5hp per liter, beating out the Honda powerplant by 1 horsepower per liter. By the way, the base price for the Ferrari supercar was around $275,000 at the time of its release, whereas the F20C-powered S2000’s suggested retail price at the time of release to the North American market was around $30,000. In ’00 and ’01, the F20C was on Ward’s 10 Best Engines list — an annual list of the “best” automobile engines available to the U.S. market. Additionally, for five years in a row from ’00 to ’04, in the “1.8 to 2 liter” size category, the F20C garnered accolades in the International Engine of the Year — an annual competition for automotive industry internal-combustion engines. The judges for that competition are automobile journalists from all over the world. Pretty damn impressive, right?
