This 1:20 scale convertible car was commissioned in a special color as a gift for an S2000 enthusiast.
About this creation
This car was comissioned by a woman as a gift for her boyfriend, who owns a Honda S2000. To be true to his car, she requested it be created with a special light-blue exterior and dark blue interior. There aren't a lot of LEGO elements in these rare colors, so Sean had to design the model with a somewhat limited palette of parts.
Three cars were built in total ... the dark blue car was the original prototype, the light blue car was the commissioned sculpture, and the yellow one was an extra one Sean made for himself. (It so happens that a yellow Honda S2000 was Sean's "dream car" for many years!)
Can you figure out how Sean made the little white reverse lights?
One distintive aspect of the car is that it does not have an ignition... it has a big red "start" button, calling to its roots as a race car. It was difficult to get the button into the model, but well worth the extra effort.
very nice. I never tried pulling off something like that.
I like it

The side view as mentioned by somebody is too short, the front overhang a bit flat-nosed, and the model a bit bulkier.
Maybe when you finally own your dream car, you'll give this S2000 a second try. :)
Awesome work, This looks just like a S2000. I love how you are completely faithful to the real thing, evident in all your models. I don't like the interior though, could use some SNOT, but it isn't too bad. Alex.
