So where are all the U.S. owners with this thing?! That's how the S2000 should have came from the factory. (the hardtop, not the spoon kit)

The spoiler looks like its intergrated, and i haven't seen one without it. I'm sure it works too...

the thing is that it doesnt look like spoiler is installed on the spoon HT. It looks like its on the OEM trunk. If so, how do you open the trunk? :confused:

The wing is on the hardtop. The "trunk" opens in two stages. Hardtop part first, then the oem trunk.

The Dome hardtop is very nice. Its weird my Japan sources say its a dry carbon hardtop and Bulletproof has it as FRP. I dont know what it is really at this point. There are a couple coming in, in late June. They were suppose to be here next week but didnt make the shipment. Anyway if these are a FRP, then the cost SHOULD be around $3000. There is no way in hell its worth more. I dont care if it is the new toy on the block. Its FRP. ;) I got a retail of $6500 for a dry carbon one and that sounds a bit right. Still a lot for what your getting.

3k sounds abought right for FRP, now way should FRP be worth 6k+ Bulletproof says something about requiring a roll cage/bar? Any ideas, maybe its required as part of mounting or something?

It will require a 4-8 point cage for mounting purposes. I just confirmed this last night. It is a dry carbon hardtop.

:( no FRP :cry: well, I'd guess that for those considering Mugen CF this is a pretty good alternative? Its only ~1k more and the aerodynamic profile looks way better.

I think the look is cool. With that roof line, you would have something that would look like the Porsche Cayman but way better. :hello:

That's the hardtop coupe that is supposed to come out next year.

I think it looks hot although the spoiler kinda looks like it was "slapped" together and thrown on

I want this hardtop and need it. Now only if I had the money to get it. Raamen noodles here I come.

Seriously though, the roll cage requirement seems like it might be a big deterrent and I'd be worried about sealing issues since it attaches by the roll cage. Is Spoon still developing this hardtop so that it attaches directly (like oem or mugen) or is it only ever going to be available with the roll cage an integral part of the mounting? Does it require a specific roll cage? Also, how hard is it to remove the roll cage they are using so that when you remove the hardtop, you can also take out the roll cage? I'm pretty unfamiliar with the engineering involved with roll cages in aftermarket cars so this last question is probably pretty stupid. Sorry about that. I'd sure love to have this though. Beautiful complement to the lines of the S. Just another opinion though.

Spoon does not make the hardtop, their car is only sponsored by it. The hardtop is actually made by a company called Dome, which is heavily involved in racing in Japan, including JGTC, and Formula Nippon. My guess is the hardtop will use the main roll hoop as a mounting point in addition to oem, if it uses oem at all. This hardtop is basicly made for race cars, I doubt they have intentions of making it a option for street cars.
