Japan is the third largest manufacturer of Automobiles in the world. What makes a Japanese car so special? Let us take an example where we pit two Japanese Cars against each other and find out what makes them so desirable. Not only are these two automobiles high performance machines, they have their sweet spots, along with some vulnerability. Here is a write-up on both the cars
Nissan Skyline: It is the balanced one out of the two. Though it is a late-starter, because of the engine and horsepower disadvantage, it can take some time to catch up with the Mitsubishi Evo 8 mr. However, on the sixth gear, it can leave Mitsubishi trailing behind. Moreover, it is quite balanced. The braking is perfect. It is more of a city car than a rally car due to the heavy steering. On a straight-line, it is no better than the Evolution 8 mr. Whatever be the verdict, at the end of the day, it is a clear winner. It is just like the Elgrand e50 which is high on performance and power, once it gets running.
Mitsubishi Evo 8 mr: It is a darling in its own right. The mid range acceleration can stun a Nissan enthusiast. The Skyline being a high-end performer has a heavier engine and kerb weight/curb mass. Moreover, Mitsubishi Evo 8 mr is way lot cheaper than a Nissan Skyline. Owing to these two factors, this makes it the desirable one out of the two.
