Crown SpeedLab's Voltex S2000 from 2019 NYIAS
From the kit to the paint, to the TE 37 wheels we can't find a thing wrong with this Voltex S2000 from Crown SpeedLab.
This is pretty sweet
We covered the development of the Voltex S2000 back in July of last year, but now it has made its debut on the world's stage at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. Looking at all of their work across various models, it's amazing to find out that the company has less than ten employees. Yet, each part has been constructed with a quality of care that is astounding to see.
The development of it all
As a matter of fact, Prime has a great article on the build where you can see the car in various states of assembly. The New York International Auto Show played host to an aftermarket hall in the lower level of the convention center. There, Crown, who hails from Flushing and has been in business for over 40 years showed off their Voltex S2000.
Everything cool is sadly very expensive
The Lizard Green paint comes from the stable of Porsche and was used on the GT3 RS. Akihiro Nakajima, the founder of Voltex has said that for the aero on this body kit to make sense, the car would need to be capable of over 700 horsepower. While this S2000 doesn't have anything close to that, Crown has said that some boosted turbo power is in the near future.
Like I was saying...
Akihiro himself made the trip all the way over to New York to lend his assistance on assembling the aero for the car. It's pretty impressive to find out that cool factoid. But then again, this is a body kit that costs $30,000. So it's nice to know that everything has been installed and fitted correctly.
Please keep the S2000 alive with more products
Another very cool aspect of this build is that underneath the car, the focus of going as fast as possible still holds strong. On the underside are chassis mounted reinforced plates to withstand hundreds of pounds of downforce generated at speeds. Nakajima-san stated that the plates are mounted so steadfastly to the chassis that several people could likely hang from them without pulling them off.
