The 918 is better made, yes. Although, 'better made' can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people.

On another note, OT's hate on the LFA is

Funny part is that a GT-R and LFA are not that far off each other. Very close from a roll race when the LFA launched in 2010. Around the track it's also no slouch.

Vid is with a 2012 LFA(almost nothing changed from launch year) vs. GT-R 2010

not sure bro, but nismo gtr is doing 0-60mph in 2.7s or less. LFA is 3.7s, so that is a full 1s slower. that is not close IMO.

both 918 and GTR are AWD.

Ehhh... slower than GTR, not a cool as the old NSX, worth less $$ than 2000GT. Maybe the best sounding car to come out of Japan.

This thing would have been a relevant if it produced these numbers at its original release date in the early 2000's.

it's not all about numbers.

if it were, we would all own GTRs.

but we don't, because they are grotesque.
