Drag Race: Acura NSX vs Nissan GTR

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.
