I have to say this car is ugly. It looks weird. When I went to Japan few weeks ago, I saw an article about this car on Japan's local high performance magazine. My friend who been living there for quite sometime helped me translate the article. According to the article, this car handles and feels like a pure race car. As in the speed, it's not much faster than the factory S2000. I have drove the factory S2000 and I have to say it's definitely the best Honda I have ever driven next to the NSX. For $33,000, it's definitely worth every pennies for it. I could just imagine how great the Mugen S2000 would be. If I have the chance to try this car out, I would be really happy. Mugen parts might be very expensive but their quality and performance are superb.
