It’s once again the establishment versus the edgy new kids on a block with the incumbent Porsche 911 Turbo trying to show Acura NSX how the Germans do things and the GT-R, a new kid itself just the long generation ago, trying to prove that high boost pressures are better than the hybrid drivetrains.
This is part two of the race we saw start off with the numbers check on the scales and dyno. But what neither manufacturer knows is that the vehicles are racing against the McLaren F1.
Okay so technically there is no McLaren F1 there, but Drivetribe editors were curious to see whether any of these supercars could beat the F1 to 150 mph because each can reach the 60 mph mark faster than the McLaren.
With the sophisticated all-wheel drive system and the total of four motors, three of them electric, the Honda NSX sends too much instant torque to its wheels.
However this time around, it is all about how that performance is put down onto the track and relayed to the driver.
Each vehicle’s placement is predictable with the Porsche, the lightest of the bunch, and using its rear engine weight advantage to propel itself down the runway and the Nissan GT-R snapping necks with the acceleration performance that garnered it its fame.
Unluckily, compared to the competition, the NSX leaves the bit to be desired. Hopefully part three will show us if its complicated bells, whistles can help it on a race track. For reference, none of the three cars here could beat McLaren F1’s 12.8 second rush to 150 mph.
