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!
