Honda S2000

A ’90s sports car that’s surely destined for classic status is the Honda S2000 that arrived at the end of the decade. This rear-wheel drive gem offered 50/50 weight distribution, an ultra-low centre of gravity and an incredibly rigid bodyshell for the ultimate in handling, while performance thrills were guaranteed via its 2.0-litre VTEC powerplant. An output of 237bhp, top speed of 150mph and 0-60 time of 6.2 seconds made this one of the most exciting sportsters of its generation. And it’s a great buy now, with £7-8000 buying an early high-mileage car and £12-15,000 an immaculate example.

I love my BMW Z3 2.8 - its brilliant fun to drive - handles well, has excellent acceleration, loves curves and country roads. OK the soft top is prone to leaking if it pours with rain, but a bit of tape soon puts a stop to that. In another 10 years I may be to ancient to get in and out of it cos it is so low to the ground - but meanwhile it makes me smile and very happy.
