1st. GT-R
2nd NSX
3rd LF-A

The reason Lexus is at the bottom is because of their current direction. However, they did suprise me with the LF-A concept and the LF-A is supposed to be V10 powered, so I still have hope for it.

Wow........a V-6 over V-10s......in the poll

Is it because the GT-R has real numbers to back it up........

The NSX and LF-A's next mission:

GT-R

Its because the GTR has a brutally effective AWD system and couple that with the amazing powertrain and you got 1 hard act to beat no matter how lightweight or well engineered the other 2 RWD road-going competitors will be.

And in the event the LF-A and NSX actually beat that Ring time, then they will still have to contend with the upcoming full boat Spec-V model.

Of course what the NSX and LF-A give up in outright pace/lap time, they might gain in immeasurable driver enjoyment and feel. Reviews have pointed out the GTR's rather clinical feel despite its prodigious performance (something I'm inclined to believe).

^^^

Yeah it's purely because of the GT-R having figures to back it up. I have already mentioned above, I have great hope for the LF-A but I'm not ready to bet on it yet. I really hope it is as amazing as I want it to be. It certainly has the looks.

Hard vote...

I have the utmost respect for the GTR, and I was tempted to vote that way.
I am ridiculously biased to Honda so I wanted to vote NSX

... but betting against Toyota? No way. The king of all the toyotas shall be mighty indeed.

GT-R has 30+ years experience in being hardcore SKYFUCKINGLINE LA-F is n00b, NSX has a history... of failure.

I asked that very question on another thread.

I seriously don't know the answer to this, if the NSX is solely rwd then I reckon the GTR will rule at the ring but lose out to it on a more normal race tracks which have a better surfaces. But if the NSX has awd then I reckon it could possibly wipe the floor with the GTR on every track and every surface as I reckon it will weigh a lot less and still produce similar amount of power.

Personally I don't see the LA-F in the running which probably means that it will prove me wrong and be quickest of all.
