The Chrysler Crossfire and Honda S2000 rank among the most exciting sports cars in South Africa, but see how the pair turns out when they get 'zooped' for track action...
Extensively-modified versions of both models were displayed at the Sema Show in Las Vegas and as this gallery shows, the Crossfire Drifter and A&L Racing S2000 are bound to leave their production standard counterparts feeling a little undercooked and probably choking on plumes of expensive tyre smoke!
The Drifter, decked out in a racy turquoise, black and white colour scheme, is powered by a 300 kW supercharged version of the 3,2-litre V6 found in the Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 (click here for more).
The ultra-lightweight track machine has undergone a variety of Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Formula D rules-approved steering, suspension, exhaust and roll cage modifications and a full body kit (including front and rear facia with integrated ground effects, an air dam, lower rocker panels and a carbon fibre wing).
The Drifter also gets a chopped windshield, custom-made dual exhaust, BBS wheels, Michelin competition tyres and a special RennTech limited-slip rear differential.
The Spartan-looking interior is equipped with Sparco shifter, steering wheel, racing seats and pedals.
Meanwhile, American import drag racing legend Adam Saruwatari, the A&L Racing team and Honda Factory Performance specialists have joined forces to the customise the S2000.
Exterior modifications are extensive; a fact highlighted by the Honda Factory Performance rear wing with Intense Motorsports carbon fibre treatment. The interior has been tricked-out with Sparco seats and steering wheel and Honda Factory Performance shift knob.
Under the bonnet, the S2000’s (US-spec) 2,2-litre 16-valve four-cylinder engine is mated with a Comptech supercharger and a Modula stainless steel exhaust.
Components from Koni, Eibach, Comptech and Brembo were used to beef up the suspension.
