The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Acura NSX drops supercar performance numbers in a gas-electric, typically offbeat tour de force. 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. The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.
