2014 BMW M5 Competition vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model -MotorTrend

Check out this video from Motor Trend's Head 2 Head were Jonny Lieberman is joined by Mike Shaffer and two extremely potent hyper sedans, the 2014 BMW M5 Competition and the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model. Between the two of them, these two mighty Germans produce 1152 horsepower and 1092 pound-feet of torque. On paper. After a day of horsing around/testing Shaffer and Lieberman grow suspicious of each twin-turbo V-8's actual output. So, they take them to the dyno gurus at K&N engineering to learn what's what. The results very well may shock and amaze you. However, they come to the conclusion that numbers are only exactly that: only numbers, and numbers only matter so much. One true test of a super sedan is how it handles a twisting stretch of tarmac. The other is how much you yearn for the car after you've walked away from it. While the results are definitive, this Head 2 Head is much closer than most.

Hate to say it, but the 5 series got owned in this video. Hell...even Chris Harris loves the E63 despite it having AWD.
