This time around, we see the new-age NSX and the second incarnation of the Audi supercar being thrown at each other in a Carfection review. The Brits took the two to the track, hooning the hell out of them.
And while this will upset quite a lot of Honda and Acura fans, the NSX once again seems to sit behind its rival. This idea might be especially annoying since we've previously seen both the R8 and the Porsche 911 Turbo topping the Japanese supercar in a track test. Oh, and there was also that time when the soon-to-retire Nissan GT-R left the gas-electric Honda behind in a drag race.
Returning to the vibrator battle we have here, this isn't the kind of chronograph-addicted endeavor. Instead, this track attack is focused on the feelings and emotions the two mph demons can generate when the driving environment around them allows the one behind the wheel to throw caution to the side.
Nevertheless, the Honda has its fair share of assets and, if we factor in the idea that the NSX feels better on the street than it does on a circuit, the Audi doesn't seem like that much of a dominant figure anymore. So perhaps those who have an early adopter fetish and are thus drawn to the NSX shouldn't worry too much.
