Yes yes yes, I know, numbers aren’t everything. But when you’re bored sitting at work it’s fun to see where everybody stands. As of right now it looks like the NSX will line up nicely against the ten cylinder R8 and the spooled up 911s. Perhaps it will defy it’s power/weight ratio like the the GTR, though that seems doubtful to me. Maybe history is repeating itself, the original NSX set out to fight the Ferrari 348 and never rose to meet the 355. This car benchmarked the 458 and MP4-12C only to find the 488 and 650S when it finally goes on sale.
