Nissan GT-R no longer the king of drag races?


I know what you guys are like; it’s a Monday and while some of you are still recovering from your food coma, some are probably monitoring the clock like a hawk, waiting for 6pm to arrive for you to call it a day.

So here’s what I’m recommending to kill some time – watching the former king of drag races get slaughtered by a mid-engined hybrid sportscar in a drag race between the Nissan GT-R and the Honda NSX.

The Honda NSX plays home to a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 engine with a combined output of 581 hp and more than 600 Nm of torque. On the other hand, the latest GT-R with its 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 churns out somewhere in the region of 562 hp with almost the same amount of torque.

The result is a 0-400 metre run in just 10.8 seconds for the Honda NSX and a 11.2 second time for the Nissan GT-R. Time for Nissan to conceive a new monster? About time, don’t you think?

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
