Honda NSX Faces BMW i8 in Latest Comparison

NSX vs i8 600x304 at Honda NSX Faces BMW i8 in Latest Comparison

So far we have seen the new Honda NSX pitted against cars such as Nissan GT-R and McLaren 570S. And while those are all relevant cars, the real rival for this hybrid sports car is the only other car in the market today that mixes electric motors with a combustion engine for the purpose of creating a sports car drivetrain. That car is, of course, the BMW i8.

So whichever one of these hybrid sports cars wing this comparison test, that’s the one more deserving of your hard-earned cash. That said, those who like the BMW i8 aren’t going to care about facts and figures, and the fans of the Honda NSX are not going to pay attention to their beloved car’s shortcomings. Still, this is going to be an interesting fight:
