Can An Acura NSX Take Down An Aventador In a Drag Race?

The Aventador is often considered the king of the Lamborghini’s, and many supercars. While it first debuted over 5 years ago, with its striking looks, amazing V12 sound and a nothing to scoff at 691+ horsepower, it has certainly earned a place at the top.

The new Acura NSX on the other hand, has received mix reviews. Honda’s decision to move forward with the departure from its classic NSX roots, going heavy and hybrid, to the high price tag and relatively slow sales numbers, the NSX has faced an uphill battle for respect from day one.

You may be wondering, who would even question whether or not the might V12 Lambo could crush the NSX.

The crew over at The Exotic Revolution wondered the same thing and has posted a video to their YouTube channel that pits these two cars against each other in a “definitely filmed in Mexico” drag race. The results may just surprise you! We won’t spoil the fun, so check out the video. (Skip to about 1:20 to get to the action)

Can An Audi Wagon Beat The Mighty GT-R In A Drag Race?

Of course, most people’s first reaction to a question like this would be a resounding “no”. They would be wrong.  Another set of people may have said “yes”, but wit ha caveat of reasons such as “it must be highly modified”, or “the conditions weren’t right” , but they too would be proven wrong in this case.

The Audi, in this case, is no standard family hauler. No, this Audi is the RS6. As it is currently unavailable here in the states, here’s how the Audi stacks up on paper. The RS6 boasts 533 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, pumped out of a magnificent turbo V8.  To remind you of the GT-R’s more than reputable rap sheet, the latest iteration of Godzilla is currently putting out something in the neighborhood of 562 horsepower and 469 lb-ft of torque.

Anyways, on to the good stuff. Check out the video below from the boys over the pond at Carfection and let us know what you think? Would you rather have the wagon, or the almighty, but occasionally defeated, Godzilla?

 

The New Ford Raptor Absolutely Eats The Old Raptor Alive: 2017 vs. 2014!

There has been a LOT of hate for the decision by Ford to change the Raptor over to a twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 rather than sticking with a V8 engine. Comments have been made with typically uneducated nonsense like, “it’s not a real truck without a V8”, or “there’s no replacement for displacement bro!”, but like it or not, boost is better, at least when it comes to a drag race between factory versions of the 2017 and 2014 Ford Raptors, anyways.

Still in disbelief? Check out this video from our friends over at The Fast Lane Truck, on their YouTube channel and see for yourself!

So what do you think? The result really shouldn’t be a surprise with the new Raptor being down hundreds of pounds in weight as well as having a notable increase in both horsepower and torque, but no doubt there will be those who still naysay. What about you?Have you been swayed, or should Ford still have kept the V8?
