For me, it's the enjoyment of the drive. S2K is the most fun I've had in a car, hands down. I don't race it, I enjoy it. PERIOD!

I'm more of an evo man but will admit that after driving my misses s2000. For a chick's car it is pretty quick and tidy around corners.

If the engine is LS1, it is the station perfect car

I own an S2000 and a supercharged e92 M3. I love both cars, each of them has a different personality. The M3 is fast, more powerful, more spacious and luxurious. With that said I could never part with my S2000, it is to much fun to drive. The S2k is lighter, sharper on cornering, easier to tune, GREAT on gas and its a natural blow dryer.

I agree, absolutely wonderful car. I test drove two different AP2 cars last summer and wanted to buy one. My girlfriend/significant other talked me out of it. She wanted something bigger like a 3 series or something. However, with fuel costs this high, I sometimes regret not getting the S2000.

@ TheFrank you won't regret it..... the S2000 is a fantastic car to own (the one in the picture above is my old AP2) I drove mine hard (redline virtually every trip) for 3 years and still averaged 24mpg (UK), a friend had an RX-8 at the same time and driving far less enthusiastically he averaged 15mpg!

TheFrank  7y ago

Yeah I'm seriously considering picking up a low mileage AP2 S2K in the near future. Lots of low mileage one's to be had for fewer than 25k which is a steal.

They aren't the fastest cars but they're certainly one of the most funs to drive. I'd take one over a 370z any day (fun to drive > numbers).

Both the S2K and RX-8 are great fun but I think I'd go with the S2k due to better MPG and the open top.

It's not all about HP :facepalm: handling means for to a car's ability around these tracks than brute force alone.

The F20C engine won the International Engine of the Year award in the \"1.8 to 2 liter\" size category five years running from 2000 through 2004.......


User avatar

Viking  8y ago

The Laguna Seca time is actually for a 2006 model year, which has the bigger 2.2 liter engine (called Honda S2000 type V on this site). Both versions of the S2000 are very entertaining to drive in my opinion.

Well whatever the power is, its not like either car is bad for power with 2.0L, and if either Company wanted too, they could put more power into there cars, the key word is \"Choose!\"

@Georg: and again with the bullshit.... You are claiming Porsches superiority but in fact you\'re just making a crooked comparisson. A 906 is NOT a normal roadcar... its a racecar. And when we look at some of the competition....
Alfa romeo 33 Stradale 2.0l v8 230bhp...and by 1968 it was producing 270bhp.
And for Honda? 1,5liter v12 normally aspirated in 1965 produced 230bhp @12000rpm.

You can try to get away with that kind of bullshit but there are people that have some idea of car history and again you get the lid on the nose.

For a mainstream production engine, the s2000 2,0l is exceptionable and there is very little that comes close, even today.
Take you german fanboyism to the Audi-fansite or something.

@golf diesel

what so special about that engine perfromance...back in 1966 Porsche had already a 220hp 2.0l 4banger production engine build into the 906
so Honda needed over 30years to come up with a slightly more powerfull n/a 2.0l 4banger ..and you call that best engine ever.. a engine known lacking factory claimed perfromance..

I like the nissan 350z better then the s2000.

I only brought it up because some are trying to compare 0-100kph to 0-60mph times...


User avatar

BumRush  9y ago

Most people on this site already know this...(Most) but i guess they should put a Metric/Imperiam option as well.


User avatar

Aaron  9y ago

Let's not forget (and others have alluded to this), but 0-60mph is different from 0-100kmh. 0-62mph is the better equivalent to 0-100kmh.

Yes that was a quicker lap but the S2000 was heavily modified so not a time we can accept here (everything we list is from a stock car).

S2000 has done the Tsukuba circuit quicker than 1.07.9, here it did a 1.06.45 in time attack, quicker than an M5 (E60) and M3 SMG (E46), link ...[url]http://videos.streetfire.net/video/BMW-M3-vs-BMW-M5-vs-Mazda_697665.htm[/ur]

Also, just FYI the fastest recorded time for an S2000 in an Australian publication was 0-100km/h in 6.2 seconds and 0-400m in 13.87 seconds.


User avatar

JoNny  9y ago

Georg: Appreciate your thorough attitude, but the S2000 does have the ability to do 0-100km/h in under 6 seconds. There actually was a car mag that managed 0-100km/h in 5.85 seconds (possibly german), not to mention several American motoring journo's have managed 0-60mph in 5.4 and 5.5 seconds (add 0.3 seconds for an aprox 0-100km/h time). I own a 2003 S2K, so I know firsthand that this car is difficult to get great times out of, but not impossible. At the end of the day it will shine on a road course moreso than the drag strip.

S2000 may not be the fastet 0-100kmh but it still i more fun to drive around then a uggly ass mazda :)
and with a turbo charger kitt it will kill the other turbo cars with simple adjustments.

That Road and Track article is the fastest S2000 I've seen..... as a former owner I would love to think all S2000s are as quick but 4.9 to 60mph (around 5.2 to 100kph) is much quicker than any other tests I've ever found. 0-100kph in under 6sec is definately possible as there are plenty of recorded 0-60 runs in 5.5sec and 62mph is possible in 2nd gear so there is no extra time needed for a gear change.


User avatar

Georg  10y ago

not the Germans only.... most nations in the world clock 0-100km/h not 0-60mph .. show me a 0-100km/h test sheet in under 6 seconds..

Honda claims 0-100km/h 6.2s...

"we talk here about 0-100km/h not 0-60mph.. in no test a S2000 reached 0-100km/h in under 6s! "

Do you honestly think it takes the car over a second more to go 2mph faster?


User avatar

Ricky  10y ago

Road and Track tested it and got 0-60 time of 4.9 seconds. I knew the AP1 were supposedly faster because they are lighter and you don't have to shift as soon, but I hadn't heard of one that fast before.

The Germans must have gotten some weak S2000s.
