The S2000 is the car that Honda built to celebrate its 50th birthday and it compares well to more expensive alternatives like the Porsche Boxster in terms of performance and driving enjoyment. It's powered by a superb 2.0-litre VTEC engine which provides stunning performance without using a turbocharger. It does need to be worked very hard though in order to tap into the maximum performance, which can make for tiring albeit involving driving experience.
