Acura NSX and Lexus LFA go Head 2 Head

Motor Trend's Jonny Lieberman compares Japanese supercars past and present.

Few supercars epitomize the best Japan has to offer quite like the Acura NSX and the Lexus LFA. So for the latest episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend scribe Jonny Lieberman pitted the modern Toyota against the old Honda. The NSX packs a 3.0-liter V6 rated at 270 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque. The LFA, on the other hand, features a boisterous 4.8-liter V10 which produces 552 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. Which may seem like an unfair fight, but Jonny has his favorite.

Eschewing the Nissan GT-R he loves so much, Lieberman waxes poetically on the control and drivability of the NSX while chiding the LFA for being squirrelly and detached. He does give the Lexus due credit as a true supercar, but we'll put the question to you: which of these high-strung Japanese supercars is your favorite?
