Long term tests

Honda S2000 GT

If an arcade game designer were to engineer a roadgoing sports car, the result would be very much like the Honda S2000. A screaming, 9000rpm-rev-the-nuts-off-it engine, digital instrument display, snickety gearbox, strong brakes, grippy chassis, tiny steering wheel and killer looks. But what was it like to live with in the real world?
