Honda NSX: Aspirated vs. Turbocharged

Despite the ludicrously fast forced-induction models that will continue to supersede these naturally aspirated heroes, we can’t help but mourn the driving exuberance that will be lost as big, high-revving engines become a chapter of automotive folklore.

Thanks to a brilliant new automatic gearbox and its turbocharged 3.5L twin-turbo V6 the new Honda NSX takes half the time to reach 100km/h (5.9sec vs. 2.9sec). The question that must be asked is whether the extra speed equates to an improved, more involving driver experience or whether the original is still the best.
