The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Acura NSX is an engineering tour de force that blends hybrid components with a turbocharged V-6 to create a track-ready supercar that can also be driven daily. As much a track star as it is a comfortable daily driver, the 2018 Audi R8 is one of the most balanced and flexible supercars ever made.
