The Honda S2000 was released in 1999 to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary and has evolved from four decades of motorsport expertise. The S2000 is built at the same plant as the Honda NSX in Tochigi - Japan and is subject to the same meticulous build process. Virtually every component is unique to the S2000 and designed for outstanding performance.

The 2004 model received significant upgrades including numerous chassis changes and the steering, throttle, clutch, gearshift and brake systems have been overhauled for an even more enjoyable driving experience.

With competition in the form of the Audi TT, BMW Z4, Mercedes-Benz SLK and the Porsche Boxster we tested the S2000 to find out if Honda's front engined, rear wheel drive, high performance roadster can out perform Germany's finest.
