Honda Civic Type R vs NSX: Which Is Faster?
The Honda Civic Type R is basically the Japanese automaker's unofficial race car. The NSX on the other hand, is a bona fide supercar. When the Honda Civic Type R and NSX meet, an epic battle takes place. The question is which is faster?
The Power Difference
The Honda Civic Type R is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that delivers 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Accordingly, the Civic Type R's engine allows for it to go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 5.7 seconds. It was also mentioned that this makes the Honda Civic Type R the fastest hatchback model to date with a top speed of 168 miles per hour.
In contrast, the Honda/Acura NSX is powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 along three electric motors that crank out a total of 581 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque. This is delivered through a four-wheel drive (4WD) configuration by a nine-speed automatic transmission that allows the NSX to go from zero to 60 miles per hour in only 2.9 seconds with its speed maxing out at 191 miles per hour.
Given the obvious difference in power, the Honda Civic Type R could not possibly win against the NSX. Therefore, in order to even the field, a handicap needed to be given. The Honda Civic Type R had a 5-seconds head start in a one kilometer drag race against the Honda/Acura NSX as reported by Motor1
With the NSX having a zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds capability, most people would assume the 5-seconds head start of the Civic Type R would not matter as the former will catch up with the latter in no time. However, this was not the case. It was stated in a report that the Civic Type R crossed the finish line in 25 seconds flat while the NSX did it at 20.8 seconds. While the latter was faster in terms of distance covered by time, it still failed to catch up to the former and take the lead towards the finish line. Given this fact, the little Civic Type R gets the bragging rights for now.
