This is an agile DRIVING MACHINE. It
can't simply be called a sports car.
It's no drag racer, but in all other
aspects it excells. It is a great
autocross car (7 of the top 10 B-stock
cars in 2002 were S's). It should do
well in all types of hard driving. I am
a bit scared in the rain. The
Bridgestone S0-2's are very soft and
great on dry roads, but they have no
center rain channel and tend to
hydroplane. In Florida that is a big
F-1 inspired cockpit
One touch roof operation, bigger wheels
and brakes, and a serious stereo.
What started out as a weekend/good
weather-only vehicle has now developed
get" kinda car!!! Now, I crave that
distinct 6500-9000 VTEC range. Tires
go relatively quickly, but these and
the car make amateurs like me look
like F1 drivers. And if you spend a
fair amount of time in VTEC, you'll be
adding oil. That's a small price to
pay, IMO. Then there's the whole "What-
kind-of-car-is-that?" thing that makes
you feel even better about your
purchase. You will get over some
people asking if it's a Miata, because
some will think it's a Boxster. Both
are wrong AND you can take both!
"What kind of car is that?" Amazing
handling. Convertible. Other S2000
unknown vs. Z3/4, Miata, Boxster.
Reliability that doesn't sacrifice
Considering what the car is designed
for, not a whole needs to be changed.
Maybe the Modulo version available
stateside would be nice(even better
This car is so much fun to drive. I
have driven and owned many cars and for
the money, this car cannot be beat.
Even below 6000 rpm the car is quick,
but hit 6000 and you FLY. Drives like
it is on rails and very comfortable (I
I have owned most euro. sports cars
over the years and this Honda is head
and shoulders above any of them. I was
in the market for another German Spotrs
car and while at the dealership I spoke
with another consumer who couldn't stop
talking about the S2000, reluctent to
buy a Honda I went and drove one anyway
and the rest is history, the fun factor
is an 11.
Driveability, driven hard it performes
like an F1 car, but if you take it easy
it cruses very nice, I almost get 30
mpg on the highway.
For larger drivers it may be cramped, I
am very comfortable at 5'8" 155lbs, but
the space is limited as with any
