Drive a Honda S2000 near me
Honda’s S2000 open top sports car model lasted a whole 10 years in production, from its launch in 1999 to 2009. It was unveiled as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations at the turn of the millennium, after being showcased as an early concept car at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1995.
The S2000 was designed and engineered to include independent double wishbone suspension, electrically assisted steering and integrated roll hoops, whilst its compact 2.0 litre F20C engine was situated behind the front axle to give it a 50:50 weight distribution.
It thus allows for an incredibly smooth and effortless drive once taken out onto the track, with the engine powering out 265 bhp. It accelerates pretty rapidly for a car of this size too, from 0 - 60 mph in 5.5 seconds, with top speeds of 150 mph being possible.
