Finally, an all-Japan supercar smackdown has been featured by Head 2 Head as presented by Tire Rack! Since the Nissan GT-R touched down on American soil for the 2009 model year, it has been on the lookout for a worthy hometown rival. For this year, Godzilla gets a facelift just in time for an epic duel with the 2017 Acura NSX.
The NSX is literally a rolling technological masterpiece, combining a twin-turbo 75-deg V-6 alum block/heads and two front/one rear electric motors.
One of the motors is mounted between the engine and a 9-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox to deliver torque-fill, boosting output while the turbos are spooling up.
