People usually do not think about Honda when asked to picture a roadster. Yet, the Honda S2000 is a roadster manufactured by the Japanese automaker, Honda Motor Company. It was launched in April 1999, and was created to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary and to continue the tradition of the company’s previous lightweight roadster S cars, such as the S500, the S600 and the S800. One might have figured though that it would have been better to celebrate their anniversary with a type of car that people actually thought they made. But, that is not the point. Anyhow, continuing in the tradition of its ancestors, the S2000 featured a front-engine, rear wheel drive layout and a six-speed manual transmission. The car’s construction uses an X-bone frame that is extremely rigid, which improves passenger safety and handling.The S2000 comes with an electrically powered vinyl top, which takes 6 seconds to operate, and is touted as the fastest opening top among all convertibles.
