Crank up your computer speakers for the roars of those engines. Enjoy....

Ha! I knew the Lambos would take it! AWD drive dominates! (However, I would gladly trade any one of those cars for my own.)

If the NSX didn't overheat, it wouldn't have ended the same way!

That's not bad, considering the NSX-R probably gives up at least 100 horsepower to the Lambos.

Is the NSX-R a production car? Probably got the best gas mileage out of the six cars. Posted Image

No turbo as far as I know, it's kind of like the RSX type s. Done up with suspension mods and other stuff.

I was also told no turbo, but all the guts are stripped out for lightweight cornering action ! Don't be expecting no XM or iPod in this baby....

That's near unbelievable that the NSX held on for so long. A true testament to power being only part of the equation.

Yes, the NSX is a great car (even the regular version) and it's a shame a lot of people don't recognize it due to its lack of power.

Well I admit if I had $90 grand to burn on a car, a 6-cylinder NSX wouldn't be high up on my list. I'd definitely look at a Viper or the new Z06, or even a dreamy R34.

But yes, it's still a great car for the track. Posted Image

Won't be nearly as much fun around a track as the NSX. Sure they have more power but the handling isn't all that.

I wouldn't mind a R34 GT-R next to my R32 GT-R but those two (NSX and R34 GT-R) are very close matches in terms of speed in stock form. Of course when you start to tinker with the engines the R34 will run away from NSX with ease.

The NSX was a great car back when it first came out, but for some reason Honda decided they'd jack up the price.

I still think the NSX has more cache than a Viper or Vette.

Vette just seems bland to me, not sure why. Maybe I see too many of them. Viper just looks exotic with its almost comical proportions. Give me a late model of any of the 3 for free and I'd take the NSX- not sure if that's even the most expensive choice

A standard NSX is $89,000 plus $500 destination charge. But hey, they are running a lease right now, with about $4,200 due at signing you can have it for three years at $799 a month. Where do I sign? Posted Image

The Lambos caught up to the NSX when it was running just fine. The NSX was difficult to pass, no doubt, but both Lambos passed the NSX and would have started to run away from the field, had the race gone on any longer. Less than 10 minutes of hard drving and the NSX was ready for a nap. The NSX is a cool car, but is not quite on the same game as the Lambos.

The only thing the Lambos seemed to have on the NSX was straight line speed. It was hard to pass because it was so fast around the corners, a sign of great handling. The NSX could use a more powerful engine but that would mean a whole redesign as the engine would most likely end up much heavier.
