Acura NSX Taking Down R8, Price Not Their Sole Weapon

With what the Acura NSX has to offer right now, there is no doubt that the Acura NSX will be able to take on some of their more expensive rivals like the Audi R8 especially with a price tag like that.

Here is what the new 2017 Acura NSX will be offering. The new coupe will be coming in with a 3.5 liter V6 Twin-turbo engine that will be mated to a nine-speed automated manual transmission and will be delivering about 573hp. The NSX will return about 21mpg in the city and 22mpg on the highway. $156,000

The Audi R8, on the other hand, will be coming in with a 5.2 liter V10 engine that will be mated to a seven-speed auto S-Tronic Quattro transmission that ill be delivering about 540hp and will return about 14mpg in the city and 22mpg on the highway.

We know that nobody is going to look at the fuel economy here so forget about that. Let’s talk about the price. The Acura NSX retails for $156,000 while the Audi R8 retails for $162,900. Pair that with all the new advanced tech that the NSX has to offer and we think we might have a winner here.

What do you think?
