Honda NSX, Porsche 911 Turbo And Audi R8 V10 Battle It Out On Track

Few cars in recent memory have enjoyed the hype of the new Honda NSX – and for good reason.

Not only does the new-age NSX serve as the replacement of one of the finest sports cars ever produced, it also experienced a painfully long gestation period, coming to the market over eight years after being initially announced.

Now that it is available to customers around the world, everyone wants to know if it’s worthy of the NSX badge and a match for its European rivals, so Auto Express recently tested a bright red example to find out.

Pitted against the Japanese supercar is an Audi R8 V10 and a Porsche 911 Turbo, two of fastest cars currently on sale which around a racetrack, are the epitome of performance.

Can the NSX keep up with them? Well you’ll have to watch the video after the jump to find out but keep this in mind; all three have all-wheel drive, quick-shifting dual-clutch transmissions and produce between 540 hp and 573 hp.

    If only the Porsche weren’t yellow. 😉

  • Marketing works other way – the typical Porsche buyer won’t buy NSX, and guy who doesn’t like Porsches will choose between NSX and GT-R. The most interesting is comparison between NSX and GT-R, because they are direct competitors.

      And generally the guy who doesn’t like Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini etc. is simply because he cannot afford it. But they have a closet like admiration/desire for a 911. 😉

  • Dexterbarnes+MinoreeTee =GAYYY

    What a joke/waste. It’s quite obvious that the Porsche 911 and Audi R8 demolish this overhyped japanese corvette. They can even accomplish that without moving an inch. Lol.
