You just cannot get more performance without paying 10K more! It's too bad that Honda decided to stop manufacturing the S2000. The V-Tec engine is nearly bullet proof and the transmission feels like something that came off of the racetrack! Roadhandling is absolutely exceptional!
I've been driving for 46 years and must say this is the most fun/enjoyable car I've experience - The amazing thing is though 12 years old, it still runs like new! AND will outrun supposedly more powerful cars that boastt higher horsepower numbers! Honda truly put this car together! The S2000 is a keeper! Nothing else out there can give you this sensory experience!
I have own my 2005 GPW for 7 years and this car has been so faithful as a daily driver and track car. The only issued i ever had was the clutch other then that this car is bullet proof. Runs handles like a dream and would recommend this car to any one.
Have owned S2000 since 2006. Quick and dangerous (if your not paying attention). After 6500 rpm this car really is fun. My favorite is driving in 3rd gear between 6500 & 7000 rpm in traffic. It screams loud enough that drivers beside me think the pistons are about to swap holes in the engine :) Hard to imagine a replacement after 10 yrs. car is in pristine condition. Thinking of Lexus RC 150, but the Honda is still a lot of fun. For gas consumption, it uses all in the tank, as who cares what the mileage is!
