Dodge Viper ACR vs 2017 Acura NSX

If you're looking for something to have stupid amounts of fun in and for around NSX money, the Viper ACR is it, all for $140,000 out the door. Although this is a whole different animal from the NSX, keep in mind it can smoke Veyron's, Huayra's. That's a big deal.

There are many perks to getting the ACR over NSX, it's not going to be for everyone, but these video's will get you in the know:

I associate Vipers with really nasty people. I'm sure owners are not all bad, but I think that the car has that reputation for a reason.

It's got a 8.4L V-10 engine while the Acura NSX has a smaller 3.5L V-6. Yea the Dodge Viper ACR is gonna win but it's a track car. You're comparing a showy track car that's hard to drive to a daily driver that you can pick up grocers with.

It all comes back to what you're looking for in a car, not everyone looking at the NSX will only be interested in it and vehicles very much like it. So for those the Viper is something to consider. Of course different types of fun can be had with them.

The NSX is also a hybrid while the Viper is not. I think something should be said for that.

The NSX may have less ponies but it'll be no less fun to drive on curvy mountain roads and it has better fuel economy. Not something you really look at but that's a plus and if someone really wants a Wiper, they would go for one.

I've never believed that more power necessarily means more fun to drive. I think that is a very juvenile way of judging car performance.

another key thing to look at is where and how these make power and it just might be far more fun to get the NSX up in the revs since typically Honda/Acura's are rev happy machines. And that's not typically the case with cars that have engines as big as the Viper.

I think the Viper weighs approximately 300 pounds, give or take, less ?

I assume the NSX will have a linear power delivery but we'll have to wait for someone to publish a dyno chart to more accurately see at what rpm the power is being delivered.
