right on

an extra 100 seabuiscuts in an NSX? thats 370-390 hp! In an all alluminum car like that, you'd be flying as soon as you breathed on the gas pedal!

imagine Nsx With Twin .. there is no reason to make V8 NSX . next NSX 3.5l v6 Is enough

american cars are sux , i saw too many mustang gt

Take an EVO VIII, drop 5 thousand, for a total off 35,000 and itll take an NSX in whatever test. The NSX is a 80,000 dollar car. Of course, if you drive an Nsx you get more prestige and you are driving a real supercar.

The how is it that it beat a modena? modena ina track race with an upgraded evo? modena will most likely win. so if the nsx beat a modena that can beat an evo....hmmm..... and you have to remember, the nsx is a naturally asperated 6 cyl. beating multiple supercars in that video. take a turbo out of the evo and what do you have?

I doubt the Mustang will be retired. Heck, the new Mustang won five races in Grand-Am Cup this year (GS class). They may build the 605 hp Shelby GR-1 concept that was shown last year.

Grand-Am Cup

concept car







p.s. hp/liter is just a number.

Re: can some one correct me on this topic

hp/liter is just a number, but the higher the number the better IMO.....why have all those extra CC's of displacement if you're not going to use them??

The new Corvette Z06's 7.0 liter 505 LS7 weighs 71 pounds less than BMW's 5.0 liter 500 hp (for North America) V-10.
