2017 Acura NSX Roasted by 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo, Audi R8 V10 Plus in Track Test

When it comes to velocity animals such as the 2017 Acura/Honda NSX, we always get greedy, so, despite the fact that we've shown you track and drag race comparos involving the super-hybrid, but this didn't stop us from bringing you yet another circuit battle involving the NSX.

This time around, the Japanese halo car dukes it out with the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo (no, this is not the Turbo S) and the 2016 Audi R8 V10 Plus.

The three-way battle comes from Auto Express, with Steve Sutcliffe manhandling the trio from one vibrator to another.

Since we're talking about the kind of British track that fast machines lap well under one minute, it's no surprise that the three supercars we have here delivered times that were extremely close to each other.

Even so, as we mentioned in the title, both German beasts manage to leave the NSX behind and you'll get to check out the exact times in the video at the bottom of the page.

More importantly, the three come with entirelly different way of taking one around the track and this is why each second of this clip is worthy of your undivided attention.

While the NSX embodies let's-play-it-safe perfection, the Audi is a more neutral animal, albeit with slight tail-out tendencies. As for the Neunelfer, well, its rear-dancing moves need no introduction.

Then there's the aural part of the comparison and you don't need to be a full-time car afficionado to figure out the Audi, with its 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10, easily wins this one.Don't head over to that "play" button just yet
Now, before we end this piece, there's one thing we need to mention - don't let the new NSX's modest comparison results scare you away. If you're the kind who appreciates clinical velocity and have an early tech adopter fetish, this Japanese hybrid is a magnificent supercar for you. Sometimes, you may need to buy your dream car and lay off the internet for a while...
