New Audi S6 wins over E63 AMG and BMW M5!
Looks like they really don't like the M5.Anyway my choice is pretty standard in that segment.
Audi S6? It's a nice car, but better than an M5 or an E63 AMG? Come on... That's ridiculous.
Its going to be interesting with the new RS6 on the way. 3,7s to 60 in a saloon is just mental.
wow, they really weren't happy with the M5. Kudos to Audi for an amazing come back!
I can't recall which rag placed the old S6 ahead of the M5 but history had a funny way of repeating itself. Can't wait to sample both it and the M5 but given where I live and the kind of driving I do I picked the S6 in this poll, though if given any of them I would be thrilled to bits.
Makes you wonder what Audi has up its sleeve with the RS6 and does more power and performance necessarily mean a better car..... I suppose we'll find out in a year's time.
Just read the results and was pleasantly surprised to see the S6 not only beat the M5 for steering feel and brake performance but driver appeal as well. Knowing just how important the American market is for BMW this result must be a bitter pill to swallow and kind of worrying.
^I think it was Motor Trend,and the S6 that won was also a red one.
The S6 is just such an amazing vehicle. It really does magic with it's "only" 420hp. We all can just imagine what the RS6 will do.
I really looove the looks of the new A6, and the S6 gives it even more aggression.
The new M5 is really SICK in straight line races. Especially after 150km/h. As good as it is, and as good as it looks, my heart picks the S6. It is just a car you love. It's the underdog, and WOW Audi really learned their lesson with the old A6.
Maybe the upcoming RS6 will bring back the magic from the RS4 B7.
E63? No way. It way to boring. Never was a fan of the new E class. Looks to japanese for me.
Now we can cut the crap that C&D is biased towards BMW.
I see the conspiracy theorist are starting to make their way out the woodworks.
Wow, savor this moment. The E63 is far ahead in the Polls to GCF's uber-adored M5!
P.S: What's up with their Width figures? Is the W212 really 1.5" wider than the F10? I thought the F10 was wider?
Care to explain this?
It's not a case of bias, just an opinion from C&D that the S6 is all the excess you need and at a price that's right. If price had been left out of the equation then the E63 would have won but the shocker is that still the M5 would have ended up last.
Another shocker is the non PP E63 all but match the more powerful M5 in acceleration and was better in-gear which bring me to the S6, how could being down 100ft/lbs of torque make this almost as quick as the M5 in-gear?
You are well aware that C&D been accused of being biased towards BMW many times on this forum. If people been following C&D lately then they see that BMW looses many comparisons. Thats why I said earlier that we can cut the crap that C&D are biased towards BMW.
I doubt this is without PP. There been comparisons before M5 vs E63 without PP and the M5 been quicker. And there been plenty of M5 vs E63 PP but still the M5 been quicker. This is one of a kind if its E63 without PP.
The E63 testcar in this C&D comparison is the 525-hp version - AutoBild tested the very same car few months ago against the M5 (here).
They got 13,7 s 0-200 kph, I can't see how C&D managed a time of 12,3 s (estimated)...
Can you post the test when a carmag tested E63 PP vs E63 without PP? I remember there been such a comparison.
Its the exact same E63 as Autobild. Intresting.
