    • Twin Turbo Acura NSX with 700+ horsepower takes on a stock Porsche 997.2 Turbo S... and loses

      Now, the NSX here clearly has a lot of power. It is a twin turbo car with a claimed 700 horsepower. The Porsche 997.2 Turbo S is bone stock. The NSX is clearly hard to launch as in the first race the car goes sideways with the driver almost losing it. In the second race the NSX driver appears asleep at the line with a very poor reaction time but his elapsed time just bests the 911 Turbo. The NSX is the faster car with a 181.2 MPH trap speed to the 177.8 of the 911 turbo. All the 911 Turbo needs is a tune to surpass the NSX though making the NSX barely edging a stock 997.2 Turbo S not all that impressive especially for the horsepower claimed.

        Maybe after nearly losing it in the NSX on the first race they dialed the boost down a bit in the second one?

        Nothing like an incredible launch and a fast shifting transmission. Those 997.2 Turbo S with PDK are straight monsters!

        That's just a victory of technology over raw power.

        In a car like that you need to learn to steer with the right foot. Driver was asleep.
