Default The BMW M5 obviously

If the BMW M5 was a girl I'd have married her and loved her all my life. Enough said.

You do not have to think. It just is not.

I need to test drive 'em before I can vote. Anyways:

1. Audi
.

5. Audi
6. Jaguar
7. BMW
8. Mercedes

Do you also have engine specs for each of these behemoths?

No CTS-V? The Caddy smokes all these old warhorses, and does it in style. A 4000+ pound family saloon doing 0-60 in 4 seconds is something I can live with.

For me its Mercedes.
The V8 they have used is claimed ( by mercedes ) to be world's most powerful NA V8.
The engine is simply amazing. This is one motor that proves its not all about HP, but the real feel of V8. Despite being not very powerful as compared to Audi, my vote goes to E63AMG.
The best one that tells others what it is to have grace and pace.

My list will be :
1) Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG.
2) Jaguar XF-R : Still has soul. And the 510 hp makes quite a mark.
3) BMW M5 : Loses on originality and looks like overdone job. Lacks charm.
4) Audi RS6 : Tries very hard to be both BMW and Merc. Although this lead them to many good technologies, I think it loses on charm.

Coz no other manufacturer (or very rare) have 6 liter V8s. They prefer a V10, V12 for such big capacities. Corvette is another car with a big V8 though supercharged.
