Poll: Acura NSX or Ford GT?

Supercars are sexy, there’s no doubt. And two of the hottest in a generation are scheduled to go on sale relatively soon, the new Acura NSX and Ford’s re-reborn GT.

Both of these machines feature powertrains designed for the new century. Acura’s latest beast features a hybridized propulsion unit centered on a 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 matched to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Twin electric motors round out the system, which should deliver a stable of 573 horses.

The equally new Ford GT also features force-fed six. This EcoBoost monster should crank out more than 600 ponies, though official figures are not available at this time. A seven-speed, dual-clutch transaxle should provide instantaneous gear changes.

Before casting your vote, compare these two cars side by side.

    The FORD GT is SEXY SICK!!! Acura knows this is a beautiful design and are trying to copy the Sexy look's. The GT is an AMAZING 21st century design. This IS the BEST super car design EVER!!!! Ford's are fairly reliable, good selling vehicles, It's why they didn't take the government loans like GM and Chrysler. As for durability, did Acura ever KICK Ferrari's butt 4 x time's @ the grueling 24 hour Le Mans like the FORD GT Did way back in 66, 67, 68 and 69??? FORD IS WORLD CLASS!!!
