Widebody Honda S2000 Has Covered Headlights, Looks Sleepy

Here's a question worth a billion points: when is Honda going to deliver the eagerly anticipated S2000 revival?
After all these years of waiting, it looks like the Japanese automaker itself doesn't know the answer, even though the company has mention the possibility is still there.
Meanwhile, it's become more and more difficult to find a stock S2K and there are two main reasons for this. For one thing, the tuner culture is enjoying more traction than ever.
Then there's the social media circle: the networks stimulate the builds, which stimulate the networks and so on.
And when the Internet doesn't show us a freshly widebodied Honda S2000, it at least renders it. Case in point with the virtual contraption that brought us here.
This incarnation of the Japanese sportscar is a bit of a paradox. In other words, the visual mods achieve so much while not being all that far from the factory image of the go-fast machine.
And there's one element I can't take my eyes off, namely those almost-covered headlights, which give the machine a sleepy look - who knows, perhaps the thing hides a monstrous turbos under that factory hood, in which case it would be a more of a sleep... er.
These stunning styling cues come courtesy of Khyzyl Saleem, a digital artist who gets his kicks from playing with just about any performance car out there. And you never know when one of his designs makes the transition to the real world and prepares to greet the audience at the SEMA show in Las Vegas (here's an example that's as good as any).
These days, the artist we're talking about is working on his Corona Renderer skills. Well, judging by the pixels sitting before us, I can hardly wait to see what's around the corner...
