The Nissan GTR is one of the fastest accelerating cars on the planet. It even gave James May the “fizz” when he experienced ‘launch control’ in a GTR. But, is it quick enough to beat a 2017 Acura NSX?
The good folks over at The Exotic Revolution decided to find out by pitting the two Japanese high-performance cars against each other in a drag race. But before that, here’s a brief look at the specs.
The 2016 Nissan GTR is powered by a 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbocharged engine that puts out 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque. It has all-wheel drive and a dual-clutch gearbox with a launch control program that enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.3 sec.
The 2017 Acura NSX is also powered by a V6. The 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 delivers 573 hp and 476 lb-ft of peak torque thanks to combination of a petrol engine and three electric motors. The SH-AWD system consisting of the electric motors allows for quick launches off the line. The NSX uses a 9-speed dual-clutch transmission as opposed to a 6-speed in the GTR.
