The First Ever Daily Derbi Valentine’s Day Car of Choice Award

By | February 14, 2010

Happy Valentine’s day! What says “I love you” more than an overpriced bouquet of dying flowers and a box of 5-month old Russell-Stover chocolates from Wal-Mart? Nothing. Of course, to those who read The Daily Derbi, Valentine’s may very well hold more meaning in the form of a four-wheeled machine rather than a significant other. There is no better way to celebrate this special yearly occasion than by starting the prestigious Daily Derbi Valentine’s Day Car of Choice Award. So here, today, we express our love to one of our favorite cars ever made: The Honda S2000.

It’s not the fastest car ever made, nor the prettiest. It won’t turn nearly as many heads while rolling down the street like some exotic bank account drainer. But for car enthusiasts who know, the Honda S2000 is much more than the simple “cute” car that most women (and some men) see.

Responsiveness is redefined with the S2000′s potent mix of a stiff suspension and a very light curb weight. It drives just like you’d imagine a sports car should drive. The engine, albeit not the most powerful, makes a noise that frightens small children, dogs, and the elderly. Hit the 6500RPM mark and it starts to sing- that will turn some heads.

We won’t bore you for a second time rattling off all the things we loved about it- you can read all of that in our review of the Honda S2000 CR. A great car that has earned the title of The Daily Derbi Valentine’s Day Car of Choice for 2010.

I, too, would like to express my love for the S2000. It was the first car over 200HP that I got to drive back in high school, and I was thrilled. I always wanted a car I would have to go on a diet to be able to drive, and the S2000 fits the bill. Also, the earlier models ha a higher redline – I believe the model which I drove had a redline of 7800rpm. Such a high-strung engine to pull 220HP out of a 4 banger, and then to have a redline that high – wow. The short-throw shifter feels amazing in the fingers. All hail the s2000! Honda, if you’re listening, how about a successor?!

Who says you can’t have both? Tyson and I went to Monster Jam last night for our V-day date. Highly romantic. We ate chcolates there, in the form of Milk Duds, and brought home a bouquet of dirt in our shoes. Okay, Tyson brought home a bouquet of real flowers for me. And I liked it.
