Suki’s 2 Fast 2 Furious S2000 Sits in Petersen Museum’s Basement
One of the most famous S2000 examples in existence is thankfully still existing. But it’s hidden deep in the confines of Petersen’s “vault!”
When it comes to the Fast & Furious franchise, we automotive fanboys tend to have mixed feelings. Sure, each and every one of these overly dramatic flicks is a tad unrealistic. But this is Hollywood, no? We go to see movies like these because we want to be entertained, not educated. And if there’s one thing F&F has going for it, it’s a bunch of sweet rides. Like the infamous Honda S2000 driven by Suki in 2 Fast 2 Furious, of course.
The star of one of that film’s more epic scenes (jumping a rising drawbridge!), Suki’s pink S2000 could have obviously landed in the scrap heap. But it is, in fact, alive and well. We know this because YouTuber ThatDudeinBlue captured the star car sitting in, of all places, the basement-like “vault” of the Petersen Automotive Museum. Which, as most car guys know, isn’t your average smelly basement packed with little more than a karaoke machine and a poorly constructed bar.
As a general rule, Petersen is pretty strict about who it lets peruse the vault. But with a special permission slip, our video reviewer gets to scope out some of the rarer and more notable cars in Petersen’s collection. Of course, this video shows countless other cool rides including Herbie’s Love Bug and an insane Ed Roth creation. But we’re most interested in the pink S2000, for obvious reasons.
Surprisingly, Suki’s S2000 looks like it’s in pretty good shape. Except the interior, which could use a little sprucing up. But this was most likely the hero car, so you can bet it wasn’t subjected to the abuse you witnessed on the big screen. Still, it’s nice to know that one of the more famous S2000s in existence is still alive and kicking!
