For me, it's the ultimate sports car for short-range driving. That's why it was created, and that's why I bought it. I have a more versatile cross-over for everyday driving.
Shopped Boxters, Z4s, SLK 350s, TTs, 350Zs & Miatas, but they're all too effete. I can't fit into a Lotus, and if I could, it would beat me up too much.
S2000 is the real deal... simply beautiful, with clean, taut lines; thrilling power when you turn up the revs, with matching sound track; impeccable handling; modest weight; smooth, powerful brakes; driver-centric instrumentation; Honda's famous quality and reliability. Track-ready... and yet, surprisingly supple ride.
No options to buy... superb close-ratio 6-speed, limited slip, HID headlights, perforated-leather seats, staggered wheels and tires... all standard equipment.
My favorite features: power, looks, steering, handling, gearbox, ride, quality. Uncommon. No poseur! Reliable... it's a Honda!
