The Honda S2000 is a rear-wheel drive roadster manufactured by Honda from 1999 to 2009. The S2000 revived the Honda S roadster series, which was absent for twenty-nine years.
Enthusiasts consider the S2000's engine as one of the most powerful naturally aspirated Inline-Four engines ever built. Worldwide, the S2000 has won many awards for its genuine driving quality and reliability.
Need for Speed: UndergroundEdit
Similar to the Honda Civic Si, it is capable of reaching a high top speed, yet accelerates conspicuously slower than the Mazda RX-7 and the Nissan Skyline GT-R R34. In corners, the Honda S2000 performs moderately.
Need for Speed: ProStreetEdit
The Honda S2000 is featured in the Booster Pack downloadable content for Need for Speed: ProStreet as a Tier 2 car. It is purchasable for free in the car lot.
Due to its rear-wheel drive layout and low kerb weight, the Honda S2000 can be faster in corners than other Tier 2 cars, but may be outperformed on straight roads, as it has a somewhat low top speed.
The Honda S2000 appears in Need for Speed: Shift as an unlocked Tier 1 car and is purchasable for $35,000. It is capable of a Works conversion and is featured with a 3.00 Car Rating.
The Honda S2000 reappears in Shift 2: Unleashed as a Modern Road car with a D 430 performance rating and 2.84 handling rating.
The Honda S2000 is a well performing vehicle within its range. It is capable of high-speed cornering like the Mazda MX-5 and therefore a good choice for a starter car. Its acceleration and top speed are somewhat lacking to higher rated cars such as the Nissan 350Z.
The fact that the Honda S2000 is more effective in corners than in straight roads make it a valuable car for race courses with corners that are close to each other. The S2000 may be useful for drifting too.
Players can swap the engine of the S2000 with the V6 of the Acura NSX in Shift 2: Unleashed. The upgrade does not influence the handling capabilities of the car in a negative way, but improves the performance to a more balanced degree instead.
