TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Acura NSX still has us smitten with its riveting looks, performance, and quality. The 2020 Audi R8 is a mid-engine superhero in a suit and tie. Its performance is blinding, even compared to high-dollar exotics. Dollar for dollar, the $59,995 2021 Chevrolet Corvette is the best performance value around.
