It is the most fun car we have ever owned. It seems that the suggested corner speeds in the twisty curves are underated by a factor of 3. Restaint must be used with the S2000 or you will be arrested! I keep reminding myself this is only a 4 banger with no turbo.
V-tec Valves, when you hit 6000 rpm hold on, it reminds me of the 2-stoke bikes we had as kids. Only it has decent power under 6000 rpm (I call this Mazda Miata Mode)The quick short close ratio shift lets you keep it in the power band but not with out violation of the law past 3rd gear.
Removable hard top would be nice in rainy Oregon, but it's nearly everything a British sports car should have been with Honda reliability and power.
