Default Merc CL65 won clearly...

Check out the link and see how the new Merc CL65 AMG beat the best of the other brands: Maserati GranTurismo, Bentley Continental GT & Aston Martin DB9

This show the return of the Merc from its past dark years.

Well how seriously can we take the results of a poll at a particular forum. Being a German forum will give it some sort of a credibility, but there is a huge possibility of the result being Biassed.

Looks wise, I dont think I will go with the poll. I have not driven any of the cars in question to have an opinion of my own regarding the other attributes, but from what I have read, I will go with the poll.

Merc Cl65 won clearly! I clicked on this thread thinking that it would be an article or video of some kind of comparison test done between cars by JC or someone of similar stature and what do I find? A poll in which 24 of the 5425 members of a fanboy forum voted to decide which of the car they keep dreaming about is the best.

I hope one day someone on other forum starts a thread that Lambo trumped Ferrari because a 100 member on Team-bhp.com, of whom only 10 or so have seen the car in real and remaining only read about it, think so.

Completely agree with ferro here. German forum and what can you expect? Out of every 10 cars on the road you find atleast 8 of them german and I have no doubt that it's gonna be the german car here too. perhaps if all of cars in contention were german, would have made sense.

Exactly. On an Italian car forum, the Maserati would've won and on a British forum, it would possibly be the Aston.
On this forum, they should have put a cheaper and less powerful BMW M6 next to the Merc and I bet people would still take it over the CL.
