After defeating an Aventador, Acura NSX faces off against the GT-R

Follow Jeff

The current Acura NSX is an interesting vehicle.

It's a sort of budget hypercar in that its not wearing an ungodly price tag (relatively speaking) yet it packs the combination of electric motors, batteries, and a gasoline engine that you'll find in some of the world's highest performing vehicles. Think of things like the McLaren P1, LaFerrari and Porsche 918, and that's the sort of tech that Acura has shoved under the skin of the NSX. It's not producing power in quantities on par with those other cars, but it's no slouch either.

The NSX has a total output of 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque on tap. That's quite a lot. In order to put that to good use, the team at Exotic Revolution lined the car up on an empty stretch of road and placed it next to a Nissan GT-R. With a wave of some hands, the race was on and it was then quickly over for the GT-R which clearly never had an edge on the NSX.

This is the same NSX that beat a Lamborghini Aventador in a drag race. The racing occurs in Utah, so we're going to assume that it's a fair bit above sea level. That helps explain why the NSX pulled out the win against the Aventador. Here with the GT-R, which has a pair of turbochargers to help it breathe, we can't use that excuse.

Electric off-the-line torque is a wonderful thing, and it's on full display here.
