Personally I've never been that fond of the Honda S2000, but I simply cannot ignore the fact that this car has become a real driver's icon.
Manufactured by the Honda Motor Company, a Japanese firm, it was launched in April 1999 as a celebration of the company's 50th anniversary.
The Honda S2000 gets its name from the engine displacement (2 liters), and thus follows in a line of tradition of several cars before - the S500, S600 and S800 roadsters from the 1960s.
Here's another bit of trivia: did you know that the S2000 held the record for highest horsepower per liter for any NA piston road production car for over 10 years? After that, Ferrari introduced the 458 and the record was broken. Impressive!
