Mercedes Benz AMG GT gives tough competition to Acura NSX because GT R is a thrill to drive with a lot of the latest and exciting features but it is available at a high price as compared to Acura NSX.

Both cars offer remarkable performance with stylish interior and exterior looks along with a tremendous infotainment system that is much better than the Acura’s NSX.
