1000HP NSX Takes-On GT-Rs and Bikes

July 19th, 2017

If you enjoy roll racing on the highway (of Mexico), then you will love this video. It features a highly modified Acura NSX rolling up against several other radically enhanced import coupes as well as a couple of a high performance motorcycles.

The aluminum bodied, mid-engine NSX was manufactured by Honda. The first generation (1990 – 2005) models were sold with an all-aluminum VTEC 3.0-liter V6 engine. It had the capacity to produce only 252hp.

In order for our feature car to be competitive in the street racing world, the V6 was extracted and a (more durable) 2.0-liter K20 four-cylinder engine was implanted. A Precision 6970 turbocharger (system), a performance tuner, and all the usual bolt-ons were custom fitted to the K20. When all is said and done, the Acura is making approximately 1,000hp at a gross vehicle weight of around 2,800-poiunds.

During this night of roll racing on the interstate, we see the NSX taking on several high-powered Nissan GT-R entries. Several passes are made against a 1,300hp (white) GT-R. You get the sense that the Nissan is playing with the Honda like a cat with a mouse. After that, multiple passes are documented against a 1,000whp (red) GT-R. These runs are more competitive and the (GoPro) footage is well produced throughout.

Finally, a Suzuki Hayabusa and a Suzuki GSX-R750 roll on the scene and take a shot at the NSX. This is a must see video for roll racers.
