Normally I am a "Buy American" person..but that doesn't apply in this case,
because the Viper is a Dodge, and the NSX is an Accura..
So based on that alone, the NSX wins by 10 billion percent..
(I have never been a Chrysler fan..IMO they have a 40 year history of making junk..)

The Acura NSX because it is easier to handle and I'm no race driver. The Viper is faster than most cars on the planet, but takes an expert driver to handle it.

If your asking this question on a snow blower forum, and you trust the members here, you must have won the mega millions lottery and can afford to buy both.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro 421-E (38585) 2008 (New Owner)
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

To answer Northeast's questions, I'd take either one.....

I have been driving high performance cars all my life, and I'd have to agree with Miles, that while maybe you don't have to be an experienced race driver to drive the Viper on the limit, it would sure as heck be more of a handful to keep between the lines than the Acura.

Speaking of the Acura NSX of the 90's here's a short enjoyable video of arguably one of the greatest, if not greatest race car driver, with the late Ayrton Senna, taking one of the, then new, model NSX's out on the Suzuka F1 course, and putting it through its paces.



It also serves as a good lesson in the proper way of using "heel and toe", even though he was wearing white socks and expensive Italian loafers at the time.....

If the video start button doesn't work, you can click on the link above the frame. Enjoy!

Until dodge moved the exhaust to the rear the v10 was not great sounding engine. The engineers struggled to get a proper exhaust tune with the short side mounted exhaust. It was always loud but not always the best loud.

Acura NSX hands down. Have owned many Honda/Acura products and have never been disappointed. The NSX was and is an engineering masterpiece and a beautiful car. While I can appreciate the Vipers amazing power-plant and its good looks I would never want to own a Dodge product. I think they (Chrysler/Dodge/Fiat) make terrible vehicles and would never want to subject myself to owning one. Also the Viper had a terrible time putting its power down and could be pretty dangerous. It was fairly unsophisticated and brash kind of like the Charger Hellcat. I can understand why some people might enjoy that but it's not my cup of tea.
