Which horse do you have your money on?
It's always fun to see unexpected matchups on the drag strip. We're not saying a Gen 2 Acura NSX has never seen a 6th Chevy Camaro ZL1, which is why this video of the potent American muscle car battling the technologically advanced Japanese supercar is so interesting. We've seen a lot of these racing Shelbys and Hellcats, but that's different in a showdown between American muscles and Japanese sports cars.
Check out the Dodge Hellcats driving Nissan GT-Rs here.
When it comes to jaw-dropping performance, the Camaro ZL1 has the 6th. A supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 producing 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of the tire-destroying torque. You can get it with either a 6-speed manual or an automatic with paddle shifters. In addition, there is Magnetic Ride Control and a specially designed performance chassis that makes the muscle car a threat both on the straights and in curves. This thing isn't exactly light, however, and it weighs in at a whopping 3,907 lbs.
Some people will struggle with our calling the 2nd generation Acura NSX a supercar. These people think that supercars are now hypercars, or so incredibly inaccessible that only the richest can afford them. They will also tell you that a Nissan GT-R is not a supercar. Well, you can believe what you want.
Anyway, the current NSX is an interesting vehicle, and that's not all good or bad. With a supercharged 3.5-liter V6 and an electric motor, it makes 573 horsepower and 476 lb.-ft. of the torque. Yes, it's a hybrid, something we've seen on supercars like the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918, so we know it can be a potent setup. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a 9-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. But wait, there's more, because technically the NSX is a four-wheel drive car. Two electric motors drive the front wheels. As you might guess, all of the hardware isn't light, which means the 2nd generation NSX is quite stout at 3,878 lbs.
So there you have it, two fairly powerful (by today's standards) yet heavy performance cars, one with rear-wheel drive and the other with all-wheel drive and an interesting hybrid. It's not an easy matchup so all that remains is to see and see who is shredding the other one in the quarter mile.
