Poll: Nissan GT-R NISMO or Acura NSX?

Which exotic Japanese supercar would YOU rather park in your garage, the Nissan GT-R NISMO or Acura’s brand-new NSX? VOTE IN OUR LATEST POLL!!!

Really, it’s hard to go wrong with either of these cars as they’ll both paint a smile on your face that runs from ear to ear, but each car has its own flavor.

As you probably already know, the GT-R features a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6. In NISMO guise this impressive engine puts out a staggering 600 horsepower along with 481 lb-ft of torque.

For 2017 this car gains a refreshed interior, a simplified center stack, an enlarged touch screen and plenty of other enhancements, making it the best GT-R ever.

Focusing attention on the Acura, this hybrid supercar is also motivated by a twin-turbocharged V6, but that’s not all. Three electric motors also provide thrust.

All told the NSX’s drivetrain is good for an advertised 573 horses and 476 lb-ft of torque. Its top speed is estimated at a blistering 191 miles an hour.

A nine-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission handles shifting duties, trumping the six-ratio unit found in the Nissan. Both cars are all-wheel drive for maximum grip in varied conditions.

So, which of these would YOU rather have? The GT-R is much more affordable, kicking off around $110,00. On the other hand, Acura’s offering starts at a wince-inducing 158 grand. Please, compare these cars here and make sure to vote in our latest poll!

    GTR because it’s a GTR

    NSX should actually be called NS-Z
    (just like CR-Z is similar to but not an actual CRX)

  • DEman19901

    NSX only because the current GTR is getting rather old.

  • James Vanderhooten

    I don’t see how the NSX is voted higher when comparing the 2

    1) is not even faster than the GT-R (considering 0-60 and top speed), even with all that hybrid machinery
    2) Its design looks like Micheal Bay had his way with an Audi R8
    3)It’s marketed as the every day supercar, but i dont see a useable trunk…or back seats

  • curtis uwuigbe

    I agree that’s the only reason. Nissan should totally change external looks; totally.

  • Crixus Crasus

    Nsx will be faster than Gt-r. Design looks better than GT-R and that slow garbage pos German audi r8. It looks like a everyday super coupe. Since its a coupe its not going to be spacious like minivan ofcourse.

  • James Vanderhooten

    You’re demented if you think the NSX is faster. Slower 0-60 and slower top end speed than a GT-R that has a useable trunk, old drivetrain, and can seat 4.

  • Branden_Lucero

    the 2017 version is the last GT-R of the R35 line. its been rumored for the longest time that new iteration of the GT-R line would be revealed for the 2018 model.

  • Shiratori1

    Stupid comment.

  • Shiratori1

    NSX

  • HondaGuy

    NSX

  • Crixus Crasus

    Show me one valid comparison of both cars where Nsx is slower 0-60? If not we both know who really is demented and ignorant. GT-R doesn’t even look like a super exotic coupe heck I would take c7 vette z06 over that cheap looking Gt-r and fuck those incompetent dirty cheating European German Vw bastards. German incompetent mofos would build a hybrid car that runs on electricity only when being tested for emissions and runs on diesel the rest of the time lolz

  • smartacus

    but then again, they’re still better than Toyota who can’t finish that replacement Supra for 20 years. Not even now with BMW’s help.

  • Victor Po

    It’s called the LF-A.

  • soban ali

    Speed is not everything you know….I would take Lexus LFA over them, which is slowest.
