Re: NSX or Skyline

The NSX R will outperform the skyline in straight line acceleration.

From 0-60 its close cause the skyline is soooo fast off the line, a mclaren f1 could not pull on it from 0-20 mph. But once you reach the quarter mile line the NSX-R will beat it. Simple because it has a much better horsepower to weight ration and it does not loose as much horsepower to the wheels because of the mid engine RW against the all wheel drive system.

The NSX-R will also outperform a Skyline on the track. NSX-R is one of the best performers on the world for the horsepower range it is in.

Aftermarket, the Skyline BLOWS the NSX away. With a simple ECU modification the skyline can get more than 35 WHP.

The Skyline looks like a mean tank IMO and the NSX looks like a supercar.

Re: NSX or Skyline

From my experience, (my experience being best motoring videos, so not that much) the Skyline usually puts the beat down on the NSX, no matter the model.

Re: NSX or Skyline

i can see this coming into another solely skyline thread where we compare it to all kinds of cars. so lets try to stay with the nsx vs. skyline and don't bring any other cars into it.

anyways, i would go for the nsx-r beating the skyline on the track. i saw a video of the nsx keeping up with a murcielago. it was pretty crazy.

Stock for Stock, I give the advantage to the NSX-R, not by much thoudh, I but I still think it's a better all around performer than the Skyline GT-R sligthly. Still once we start talking modifying, then in my opinion it's not even a contest. The Skyline is one of the best cars to modify in the world, the same can't be said about the NSX model. Still if I had to choose, I'm going with the Skyline, for AWD, great stock performance, and whole lot of aftermarket potential.

Re: NSX or Skyline

3000ways makes a great point regarding tunability. the nsx will lose in that respect. though the nsx-r is just one badass car. so is the skyline. dammit, it'd give me a headache tryin to choose between these 2. i think i'd go for the nsx-r in the end, but by a slim margin.

Re: NSX or Skyline

nsx r.
not to mention the type s zero.
it's tough though.
put it against a spec v nur, and it's over.

stock for stock, i'd take the nsx, and even mildly modded, i'd take it.

i very much like the skyline, but...
it's a tough call

stock, probably the NSX.

but hey, I couldn't think of owning one of those cars w/o modding them.

in that case the skyline is superior, no question.
mainly for it's RB26DETT and the AWD system I'd say.

skyline has a 90/10 split, its rwd once it catches grip. best of both worlds takes off like awd and keeps going like rwd. i'd actaully say skyline in the 1/4 mile and nsx on track

stock v-spec II vs. stock 03 nsx-r. the nsx-r is on average around 3 seconds faster around sugo circuit. i was surprised to see the new nsx-r being that much faster then the GT-R. beucsae the v-spec II is quit a bit faster then the older 3.0 5 speed nsx-r's.

so stock for stock the nsx-r takes the cake.

for modded, i'll take the gt-r

Re: NSX or Skyline

NSX-R for stock
Skyline for aftermarket

I love how the new nsx looks, even though only minor adjustments were made.
