This is the most enjoyable car I have ever owned. Being 60, I have owned plenty. The car goes through a transformation as you increase the RPM's. It transforms, around 5000 rpms, into a true sports machine, with lots of power and excellent control.
The top-down look is very stylish unlike many other baby-boomer roadsters of this class.
I've had my S2000 for almost a year now and love almost everything about the car. I'm a huge fan of Honda and this car is a total thrill! The design is great and performance is even better. Everytime I get in my car, I'm excited to drive! I was initially concerned about the hassle of a 6-speed, but the shifting is virtually effortless. To top it off, I can actually fit my golf clubs in the trunk!
After drooling for 5 years and thinking how impractical the car is, I went ahead and bought one. Driving has been fun ever since, my commute became my race track, specially the ramps getting on the interstate. The ride is hard, but it's a sportscar what did you expect. My only criticism is low rpm power, I'd like to get out of the hole quicker, not burn rubber, but have more of a gas pedal response as soon as I apply foot power to the gas pedal, top end it really revs, I'd just like more guts at the lower end. It's a bit noisy when traveling the freeway, radio is a bit hard to hear, but these are small sacrifices for styling and handling.
