The S2000 is tough to launch. If the driver revs it too far over 6000 RPM and drops the clutch he is not assured a great takeoff as the car can light up the rear wheels and go nowhere. If he launches at or around 3000 RPM the car goes nowhere and the M3 will be gone. Once moving, though, it is a different story. The S2000 will hang right with the (stock) M3, at least up to 100 mph and, I assume, right on up to top speed (which I believe is greater on the S2000) - provided the driver keeps it over 7000 RPM.

I almost bought an S2000, but they were too tiny for me. Fun, fun fun little car though, after every test drive I would come back with my adrenaline pumping and my mind racing for any way that I could bring the car home that night. The handling is excellent, so don't think you'll be losing him in any backroads, and the shifter is the sweetest, shortest, most precise thing this side of the M coupe.

All in all, the car is off the hook. It is not an M3 - but one hell of a Honda.
