The S2000 is no more. Or rather it will be once Honda has sold these Edition 100 versions (white paint, dark wheels, red leather, numbered plaque). Time for a bit of reflection, then.

Ten years ago Honda’s roadster wasn’t good enough, and it still isn’t. But it is closer now than it’s ever been. Last year’s stiffer suspension settings made the S2000 more exploitable, controllable and enjoyable than ever before. You’re now more aware of the signals coming through the seat of your pants, able to feel the LSD’s effects, so the car is less intimidating to drive fast. Meanwhile the engine, practically untouched since day one, is still a thing of wonder and the gearbox remains the single greatest thing about the car.

Yes, the steering is still rather remote and you still sit too high in the shrink-wrap cockpit, but the demise of the S2000 should be cause for concern nonetheless, because it’s further evidence of Honda’s abandonment of the car enthusiast.
