Honda (Acura) NSX vs Nissan GT-R DRAG & ROLLING RACE + BRAKE TEST | Head-to-Head

Honda NSX vs Nissan GT-R - they're two of the fastest Japanese cars money can buy, but they go about it very differently. So which is faster - the old-school Nissan, or the Ultra hi-tech Honda also known as the Acura NSX in the USA? I find out in this carwow drag race.

    The NSX also has a 3.5 liter twin turbo 6 to take over after the electronics is what happened giving it even more instant power then a GTR. I had that engine in a crosstour and it was no slouch and is uber reliable.

    3 years later and I’m still amazed that the Acura nsx smoked the Nissan GT-R, nsx does 0-60 n 2.7 seconds thanks to that electric motor but fanboys of gtr be like: gtr would win on track tho” hell no even the nsx is shaped better then the gtr and is prob lighter to as well they both got awd n nsx is faster n general so nsx is the best overall gtr only sounds better that’s it...

    C'mon man, ALL stock GTR's are 10 second cars and will crush these NSX's. This is the fastest NSX I've seen on you tube and the absolutely slowest GT-R. Something is very wrong here.......(Sales must be down for the NSX.)

    Considering the NSX is £150,000 and the GTR only £84,000 and this NSX winning by this short margin, I'd still give more consideration to the GTR.
