    After hearing a squadron of NSX's in a tunnel and having them speed past one by one, Honda FTW.

    "Dear, I'll be right back, I'm just going for a quick spirt in the Espirt"


    EDIT: Just to be clear, I wasn't trying to poke fun at you SonicADG, only at the Espirt bit. When I first heard of Hyundai, I pronounced it as "Hey-haah-nn-doo"... Needless to say that caused a couple of blank stares in it's time!

    Sonicadg: It's spelled E-S-P-R-I-T and pronounced "Es-pree".

    Plus I vote for it.

    Top Gear power lap times:

    Honda NSX Type R: 1.31.6
    Lotus Esprit V8: 1.32.5

    Not much in it. I'd take the Esprit for the looks and the whole cool factor.

    The NSX-R ran on a wet track.... Extremely wet.

    NSX 0-60mph 5secs? where you got that info? it should've been under 5.
    Yep, it's about 4.7s for a regular NSX (Magazine #s)

    Anyway, I give my vote to the NSX. I simply love the car (everybody should know that by now ) The Esprit is a kickass car as well though.

    For the sake of this comparison, the time shown here is for the NSX-R, the comparison is between the regular NSX and the Esprit V8. If the comparison featured the R, I may have gone for it. It was Evo's COTY in 2003 and they even featured a comparison between that and a PAGANI ZONDA S. They said that DESPITE THE PRICE DIFFERENCE, BOTH CARS THRILLED EQUALLY!

    Is this Agusta named after him by any chance?



    I had no idea the NSX's gas mileage was worse than that of the Espirit's.

    Am I the only one who doesn't like Esprit V8? For what it's worth, I still prefer it to the NSX, but I'd much rather have a 1994 Esprit S4 than either of the two aforementioned vehicles.

    But we'd both rather have a TVR (in my case a Tuscan S) than pretty much any comparable car, right?

    The Esprit was a ****ing amazing car plagued by a bad market. That thing served ass with a four banger, it's just that, unfortunately, potential buyers wanted some meat for their money, and boosting the engine size put it into an innapropriate class.

    Esprit ftw.

    I see NSXs on the streets sometimes, so I have to go with the Esprit. It's such a nice car anyways.

    As nice of a car as the NSX is, it has little or no soul compared to Esprit

    very close call, i'd take either without thinking but if presented with both...aargh.... if it was an NSX-R... i'll lean towards NSX anyway.
