A Supercar Showdown: Compare the 2018 Nissan GT-R to the 2018 Acura NSX in Charlotte

We all have a different definition of "Dream Car": but, for the majority of auto enthusiasts, the dream car is typically a powerful, muscular, high-performance sports car with 110% attitude and a compact, two-door body. The 2018 Acura NSX and the 2018 Nissan GT-R both fit that bill, but they approach the supercar segment in very different ways.

An important piece to note, however, is that even though both of these models are considered sports/super cars, they're not exactly in the same league. Nissan is still playing with the idea of a luxury car--Acura has been mastering it for decades. So, when comparing price, features, and more, consider than Acura is a luxury brand, and Nissan is an economy brand.
