Exterior Styling and Design

The clear-lens, triple beam headlights are a high-intensity discharge (HID) projector type that cast a powerful, broad beam. Side reflectors, parking and directional lights are combined in the same units. Circular internal projectors house the low beam (HID), parking light and front turn lamp. The high beam is a traditional reflector design.

The taillight design follows a similar triple beam theme with large, round multi-LED taillights set in clear-lens housings. LED lights are used on the stop lamps and parking lamps and side marker lamps. The reverse indicators and turn signal indicators are circular and use traditional incandescent lighting. The squarish side marker lamp uses two LED lights.


Dual, chromed oval exhaust tips visually dominate the rear view of the car. The gap between the outer sidewalls and the outer edges of the fenderwells has been minimized, giving the car a wide and stable look.

The 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels are an open, twin 5-spoke pattern that calls attention to the S2000's large brake discs and calipers.
