Hear the VTEC Scream in a POV Test of a Honda S2000

The Honda S2000 is one of the cars I like most, even though I haven’t had the chance to drive one myself – yet. I do know enough about the brand, and have driven other Hondas before, to understand what this car is all about, and even after production ceased in 2009, it didn’t stop being the coolest two-seater one could realistically hope to own and run with not a huge amount of cash on hand.

The main reason behind the appreciation of the S2000 is its engine, which in typical Honda fashion thrives on revs and just gives the car a unique character. There’s no turbo, no lag and with the latest VTEC motors, you don’t even feel the step when the cams change, like you used to get with older models, so it’s smoother and more usable. Check out the POV test we’ve uploaded below, courtesy of Winding Road Magazine, showing a first-person perspective from behind the wheel.

I think the S2000 also looks pretty cool, and it is a more restrained version of the formula, than say a Toyota GT-86/Subaru BRZ, at least in the styling department. However, the footage below concentrates on the experience of driving the car, so without further ado, you should really watch it, and hear the VTEC reach 9,000 rpm… In addition, if you don’t like the noise of the engine, you can always turn it into an EV.
