HONDA S2000: The Honda S2000 was a roadster that was manufactured by Japanese automaker Honda from 1999 to 2009. First shown as a concept car at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1995, the production version was launched in April 1999 to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary. The S2000 is named for its engine displacement of two liters, carrying on in the tradition of the S500, S600, and S800 roadsters of the 1960s. Several revisions were made throughout the car's lifetime, including changes to the engine, gearbox, suspension, interior and exterior. Officially two variants exist: the initial launch model was given the chassis code AP1, though cosmetically similar, the facelifted version (known as the AP2 in the US) incorporated significant changes to the drivetrain and suspension. Production of the S2000 ceased in June 2009. In Japan, it was exclusively sold through the Honda Verno sales channel. MAZDA RX8: The Mazda RX-8 was a sports car that was manufactured by Mazda from 2003 to 2012. It was first shown in 2001 at the North American International Auto Show. It is the successor to the RX-7 and, like its predecessors in the RX range, it is powered by a Wankel engine. The RX-8 began North American sales in the 2003 model year. Mazda announced on August 23, 2011, that the RX-8 was to be discontinued citing the 2012 model as the last line of production. The RX-8 was removed from the European market in 2010 after the car failed to meet emissions standards. Without the volume sales from Europe coupled with rising Yen prices, Mazda could not justify the continued sale of the RX-8 in other markets.





New Toyota GT86 TURBO vs McLaren MP4-12C
The Toyota GT86 has beautiful handling, but Steve Sutcliffe thinks it needs some more poke. Luckily Fensport has built a turbo version... SUBSCRIBE to Autocar: http://youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=autocar We're big fans of the Toyota GT86, but always wondered what it would be like with more power and stickier tyres. About 250bhp and 250lb ft of torque should do it, so we sent Steve Sutcliffe to compare the Fensport GT86 turbo with the standard coupe. When Fensport then gave us the keys to their mind-blowing 335bhp GT86 racer, we decided to see just how hard a McLaren 12C would need to be driven to keep up with the humble Toyota.
