Good morning, people. You have awoken in the year 2016 and the Honda S2000 is a classic car.
It’s an amazing confection of a hugely willing, roughly 240bhp, four-cylinder engine, mounted far enough behind the front axle line to almost call it amidships, married to a six-speed gearbox and rear-wheel drive with a limited slip differential.
It has only two seats, so family types will need to purchase a miserable modern four-door saloon for day-to-day duties. But as the latter can be had for a few hundred quid, you may, perhaps, be home and driving a beautifully executed affordable Japanese sports car of the late 20th and early 21st century, with only a small extra financial consideration.
Keeping it ready for the road is easy, just as long as you treat its reputedly bomb-proof engine to regular oil and filter changes, along with normal regular servicing of other components.
Keeping it pointing in the intended direction may be challenging, especially if heading in from 1960s sports car, but wow, it’ll change your outlook.
