High Revving Top Down Fun. — Owned this car for a few weeks so far and I'm loving every minute of it. I didn't think I would enjoy a convertible, but it's actually one of the most enjoyable car's I don't want to get out of especially when I'm out on the road doing some spirited driving in the mountains or just cruising on a nice sunny day. Engine sounds absolutely great when you're up in the higher rpm's w/the top down. Not only does it sound great, but it's got a good amount of torque from past Honda's I've driven over the past few years. Radio isn't very feature rich or with the times. There's your basic display that shows you what you need to know and all, but thing that really grinds my gears is that it can't play any MP3's. It's 2008 and almost all the new cars can play MP3's standard except this. Cabin and trunk space leave much to be desired. It's a convertible what do you expect? If I wanted room then I would have drove the family van or four door, but when I want to have fun driving I'll take this anytime of the week.

Love It But Plan To Buy A Saloon Style Like The Gt-r Or M3 — Love this car for what it was built for. Pure sports car. Dislike the hard top roof. Rattles and is a pain to put on or remove. Paint is easily scratched. On an autocross course it is awesome. This is a fun car to drive for an afternoon through upstate NY. Small trunk and lots of road noise make it difficult to drive long distances.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

It's My 2nd Favorite Car Ever — 6spd, revs 8750rpm RWD, roughly 270hp, light weight, drift compatible :b amazing handling, not so good in cold wet weather, great acceleration , stops on a dime, build quality is perfect nothing will break, 22mpg unless you drive it hard, crazy fun! 1 ticket. it's a drivers car bottom line great bang for the $

Time To Go For A Drive!!! — Ok well at first glance it is the deffinition of a roadster. Preformance wise it loves the twisties. Find a good road course and fall in love. It could use a little more power but its deffintly not lacking. It is a extreamly reliable car as you still see many AP1's on the road and they are up to 9 years old now and most who own S2K's like to play. Gas milage isnt great but who cares, i mean come on is that what you would by this car for is gas milage. Pure and simple this is a drivers car that rewards you the more you push the envelope.

Pros

Body style  Engine & Superior Handling

Cons

Convertable Top & Price :(

35

Honda..# 1 — Personally... I still want Higher RPM like the first Gen S2K F20C...would like to see the 9000rpm on a F22C...Superior Handling on this thing, if not raining... Breaks feel OK but still have room to improve...Dislike the Convertable top...making noise when u go thro a bump, if possible go for hard top...body style pretty sexy to attract females for a ride...F1 type control panel setup around the steering wheel and push start engine button...Energy Bar style digital OD meter--tight!! Gas mileage is OK 18/22/20(combo)...Engine Oil I prefer Mobile 1 all the way and don't forget to check Rear Diff Oil too... I love to drive it...

'08 S2k Cr — Where do i start?! This car is every man's dream. Or at least, if that man loves performance. Every racer knows that less weight is best weight and this car weighs practically nothing. At 2800 lbs, it produces 237 horses and 165 lb/ft of torque at the flywheel. That about 200-210 wheel horse power and about 140 wheel torque. It may not seem a lot but because this car weighs so little, it can rocket to 60mph at 5 seconds flat if you're a good shifter. It also finishes the 1/4 mile in 14 seconds flat. Again if you are a good shifter. The great thing about the s2k is that its an all around performer. This thing is great on a straight but to unleash its full potential, you need a nice winding road. This is where the high rpms and light bodywork come in handy. The CR's slalom speed was 71.4 mph and did the 200 ft skidpad at .99 g's!! Consider this, one of the s2k's main rivals is the Lotus Elise. Priced at $55,000, this car is practically a track-only car. But compared to the CR, it shows very similar numbers. The Elise's slalom being 72mph and skidpad exactly the same. Performance wise, the Elise zips to 60 in 4.5 seconds due to the even lighter weight. Overall, the s2k is in its own class. It can run in straight lines with heavyweights and it'll dust everything unmodified in corners. Luckily for us, the CR comes out the factory as a ready made track-car. All the suspension parts stiffened to take corners harder. The fun factor is a 15 out of 10. Not only do you get the looks from everyone around you, but you get the handling of a go-kart! If you're a street racer looking for a car that can turn, than this car's for you.

Amazing Car...would Def Ref To Anybody Looking For A 2dr Coupe — Handled like a charm...drove like a true sports car...road noise wasnt to bad...and the body lines are clearly amazing. Motor was very clean looking. Not to much trunk space but who needs one when you buy a 2dr coupe convertable. Keep it coming honda doing good so far!!!

Read the review.

Lack of mountain roads in Florida

35

S2000 Cr — The beauty of this car lies within its suspension. All movements initiated by subtle hints guided through your fingertips to the steering wheel is felt within the body and motion of this vehicle. Pure 163 ft-lb of torque felt at 6800 RPM puts plenty of rubber and asphalt behind you. The only thing lacking...curvy mountain roads in Florida...maybe it's time for a move.
