Sub 1 minute S2000... they are pushing it too far over there in Japan. And the result is blown engine while BMW with twice the cylinders and displacement wins the race... with no internal engine mods at all..

The tiny little MR2 was smoking too and one of the 86es also blew up... It is simply too expensive to race engines in this level of aggressive tune.

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.


User avatar

Wads  11y ago

@ 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!


User avatar

TheFrank  11y 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.

I love this car.
Proud owner!
whoever talks shit about this engine does not know about engines and should buy a clio

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  11y 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  13y 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  13y 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  13y 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.
