The Honda SSM concept which was introduced at the 1995 Tokyo Motor Show was a preview of the upcoming Honda S2000 which was released a few years later.

The SSM (Sports Study Model) was highly praised at its launch and it generated a significant amount of interest from driving enthusiasts eager to try out an all-new front engine, RWD roadster from the same company which brought the world the NSX.

Developed by Honda at the company's Wako design center in Tokyo, the SSM featured stunning bodywork and almost textbook proportions. Thankfully both were carried through to the production car.

The drivetrain of the Honda SSM concept featured a 2.0 litre, 5-cylinder VTEC engine and a 5-speed semiautomatic gearbox. The SSM was one of the first road cars - once it went into the production - to use a prominent starter button to bring the engine to life, and also inject some additional race-inspired drama into the cockpit.
