Honda has released a photo of a very custom S2000 that will be competing at this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

Dubbed the Honda “S3700,” the custom sports car will feature a 3.7-liter V6 SOHC VTEC motor rather than the traditional four-cylinder powerplant that came standard on the S2000. Little is known about the actual race car, but Honda Performance Development has done a couple of S3700 projects in the past.

If the Pikes Peak race car is like HPD’s S3700 projects, then under the hood is the same 3.7-liter V6 found in the Acura TL which is good for 305 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. It’s also likely that the racer has been further modified for even more performance to tackle the rigorous climb. The 2014 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb kicks off June 29, 2014.
