Has The Nissan GT-R Met Its Match With The Honda NSX?

Despite celebrating its 10th anniversary last year, the Nissan GT-R remains a very capable machine.

It retains the original 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, which was updated over the years and currently churns out 570PS (562hp) and 637Nm (lb-ft) of torque in the standard version.

This can be had from £82,525 (equal to $115,632) in the UK, but pay a stunning £69,000 ($96,681) premium and you can get the range-topping Nismo, with its 600PS (592hp) and 652Nm (481lb-ft) of torque in addition to lots of other track-focused updates.

On paper, the GT-R is about as powerful as the newer and more high-tech Honda NSX, which uses a 3.5-liter V6 engine along with three electric motors to develop a total output of 581PS (573hp) and 645Nm (476lb-ft) of torque.

Honda’s high-tech supercar has a starting price of just under £150,000 ($210,177) in Britain, so how does it fare against the much cheaper Godzilla?

CarWow set out to answer this question by taking the two through three different tests: a standing drag race, a rolling drag race from 80km/h (50mph), and a brake test.

The Honda NSX didn’t win them all, though, claiming two out of three. However, you’ll have to check out the video that follows to see where the Godzilla managed to beat its hybrid rival.
