Acura NSX vs. Nissan GT-R

Here's an episode from Head 2 Head by Motor Trend comparing the Acura NSX and the Nissan GT-R... er... well kinda. This is a much more entertaining type of comparison rather than comparing spec sheets and being super strict on every aspect. Definitely worth the watch !

The NSX may not have met every one of their expectations, but it still beat the Nissan GT-R with a faster track time.

Beat the GT-R by a very short margin which could have been simple driver error though. But this just kind of goes to aid a lot of other people that say the NSX isn't up to par in regards to where it should be.

How these perform on the street and through canyon battles will be interesting since that will be much more in line with out day-to-day experiences. Still, pushing both to their limits, this was a good test and it seems that Motor Trend doesn't have a bias towards either one... more of a B.S.-free comparo

One of the few unbiased reviews out there. Most journalists doesn't seem to like the new NSX or they're expecting a lot more than what we're given. Just need to give Honda/Acura a bit of time to improve on the current NSX.

Expecting a lot more than what we're given seems to be more of a consensus rather than a majority vote. But they definitely do seem to be pretty unbiased. Would like to see them compare them doing day to day things like.. going to the grocery store, which is kind of a given that the GT-R does seem more practical. So that may not actually work out too well in the NSX favour.

Not JUST looking at the NSX as a vehicle that sits in the same segment as the GT-R but instead looking at it as a vehicle built for a road course track/touge/etc. it's actually one of the best things money can buy for sub-$200k. The GT-R put to do what the NSX was build for... and the GT-R doesn't exactly hold its Godzilla title that well.

But this is just ONE comparison. At the end of the day we need to see an adequate sample size of comparisons to say where each stands.

It is ONE of the best things money can buy for sub 200k when you look at it as a whole, including maintenance, Honda reliability (that we're hoping holds up with the NSX), etc.
