For all you blind, tasteless mongrels who thought the NSX wasn't curvy enough or wasn't powerful enough or wasn't fast enough check this out: the Honda NSX-R GTI TURBO.... 634BHP...330km/h...3.3s 0-60. This thing makes the viper look like a texan water worm. (don't confuse this with the next generation NSX, because the 'real' all new next generation NSX is scheduled for 2004 with a V8 4.0L, this is just a delectable taste of what is to come> And by the way, although i don't own a Skyline GTR (obviously) R34, my friend's uncle is a senior editor of a car magazine, so i had the chance to 'test' an R34 V-spec 'extreme' package. Hewwwwwwwwwwww. It was tweaked up to 1184hp, somewhere in the low regions of 3s, in terms of 0-60 acceleration, and handled like a dream (although i must admit it's something to for driving enjoyment more than riding enjoyment, the suspensions are a bit harsh (race inspired)) The only detractor of this dream machine (although ...
Hey Lazz, or Laz u seem to be one of the few people to appreciate the merits of the hypercar - skyline GTR R34. Anyways the skyline i tried was from nismo-hks, and more amazingly now they have a 1280 hp version (no bs. 1280 hp (although turbo i must admit) from a 2.6L engine is 1280/2.6 = 492 hp/L. Have you ever seen a viper with that ? nope. The amazing thing is that even at that level of power, the handling and ride quality is not at all choppy (unlike vipers for example). The steering feel is dynamic without sacrificing stability. I would kill to try the 1280 hp version!!!!!!! 1280 hp - I don't think a viper chassis could handle that.
Yo. My friend in Japan just sent me some WICKED pics from a japanese car freak fair. How does this sound: Lexus IS 200 4 times turbo 720hp, Nissan Sylvia 760hp, Subaru impreza P1 800hp (AWD), and even a Toyota MR2 with 720 horses reving close to 13000 rpm. Hewwww. And an EVO VI extreme (AWD). Of course they had the nismo-hks 1280hp skyline, and they also had about 10 differently tuned NSXs. Anyways just thought you'd find that interesting.
Here's something even Chevy-lovers can drool over
Here's somethin' even Chevy lovers can drool over
Let me tell you all one thing. There's a difference between patriotism and blind chauvinism. "Chevy's the best because it's American" type-logic doesn't seem very logical to me. Drooling in front of a chevy dealer holding a wet american flag, while bashing Asian cars with no apparent technical or experiential rationale (but what seems to be a rather racist motive) is just plain wrong. There are certain things certain countries are good/bad at and speaking from experience american companies are bad at making cars. And there are certain things that one must accept even though the truth may be painful: american cars are bad. Speaking as plainly as possible if you're one of those who buy a car once a decade and expect it to last two (i.e. you want reliability) american cars should not be your choice. If you're ready to spend thousands on maintenance and end up trashing your car after 20000 miles go ahead, but it's something i'd never recommend. Plus supporting a rusty inefficient complacent...

You can't measure a car's worth by sales figures kiddo. In that case have you ever wondered why the honda civic outsold the corvette worldwide by a ratio of 50000 to 1? I mean common the C5 only 1/2 the price of an NSX. And if you want to talk sales figures have you ever wondered why they sell like 10 corvettes a year outside of the US? And the Mustang Cobra R handles better than an NSX? where did you get that from? a ford PR guy most probably
To all you people who say Honda sux at racing i think you ppl are forgetting about the late 80s when Honda DOMINATED the sport. Yes Honda DOMINATED. And don't forget Jordan-Mugen-Honda came in third last year, so you can't say "they've had no results" recently
I'm tired of you guys who don't know a thing about "Japanese cars" saying they underperform. The nismo-hks Skyline GTR V spec extreme has 1280hp and does 0-62mph in less than 3 seconds (if you don't believe me check out the CAR magazine with the R34 on its cover). So now let's compare the figures shall we? this skyline can cream the modena with its feet tied together. The nismo skyline 400R can also smoke pass the modena with only 400 hp. And then have you ever heard about the Mitsubishi Evo VI extreme: some figures to think about: 0-62 in 3.9 sec, 340 hp from a 2L 4 cylinder engine. <<3.9 sec>> <<3.9sec>> Do some research before go on ranting against Japanese cars
The NSX-R GTI Turbo is street legal and it has 634hp, does 0-60 in 3.3 sec. Just thought i'd throw that in. Also the Subaru Impreza P1 is worth mentioning: 0-60 in 4.6sec (w/ a 2L engine!!)
