2008 Honda S2000 Overview

The 2008 Honda S2000, which Forbes describes as "an exhilarating concoction of race-bred technology and sleek styling," is by all accounts praised for its ability to perform at rocket-like speeds and its attractive exterior design. Still, reviews concede that when compared to other vehicles in its class, the S2000 appears dated. What's more, its stiff suspension contributes to a harsh ride and its cramped cabin can make comfort for larger passengers nearly impossible. Many reviews assert that these factors prevent the S2000 from being a suitable daily driver.

In addition to the base model, the 2008 Honda S2000 is also available in a track-oriented Club Racer (CR) trim.

  • "Introduced in 1999 as a 2000 model, Honda's S2000 roadster has been nothing but good fun, thanks to its excellent handling and 50/50 weight balance, but especially because of its sprightly 237-bhp, 2.2-liter 4-cylinder engine that sings all the way up to its impressive 8000-rpm redline." - Road and Track
  • "This S2000 need not worry about its soul getting exorcised. Indeed, there is much left as it heads into its ninth model year, and it is unlocked in the new CR (Club Racer) edition." - AutoWeek
  • "It is best suited for car enthusiasts willing to put up with its firm suspension, tight accommodations and high-revving engine for the sake of adrenaline-pumping performance and handling. It's a weekend club-racer's delight. " - Forbes
