That's a real tough one to call...

I think I'd put the M5 last, simply because it's the oldest, it's showing its age and that SMG gearbox is quite crap! Third place would probably go to the Benzo, simply because I'm not a Mercedes sort of guy. Calling 2nd and 1st would be pretty damn hard, that Audi is a sweet car, but I think the Jag would get top billing from me!

hrishikesh, the above ones you mentioned don't qualify as sedans.

please read the title. it says 500+ sedans, so you have choice of e63 amg, bmw m5, audi rs6, jag xfr.

please select either of one's mentioned above

The choices are unsatisfactory.

So this is what I would pick if I wanted a 500+ bhp super-sedan which was practical enough to use on a daily basis, light, compact, nimble, easy to park and drive, weave in and out of traffic, economical to maintain and fuel efficient etc.

Bentley Continental Flying Spur

(My apologies. Consider my username.).

All the cars mentioned above are fantastic in their own way. Give me any one of these free and I'll accept it gladly. If I have to buy one, I'll buy the one that I want to be seen in - the Jaguar XFR. Simply, because I'm a hardcore Jaguar fan.

1) Audi RS6 If money wasn't an option I would go for it, twin turbo gallardo engine easily capable of 1000hp
2) Cadillac CTS-V, the fastest car around the ring with the cheapest price tag
3) CLS AMG 63 Quite possibly the best looking 4 door sedan currently in production with great interior power and looks
3) Jaguar XF-R Its new its techy and its cheap
4) AMG 63 the new one is hideous so it gets placed pretty low
5) M5 will always be last place in my books because of their designs and lack of interior quality

+1 to that. The jaguar XF-R is definitely best value for money among 500bhp sedans.

M5, S65AMG, XF-R, RS6.

The M5 has been the performance benchmark for performance sedans for the last twenty-four years. Jag comes close with the XF-R, but can't match it.

And if you think I'm kidding, watch the latest episode of Top Gear. (Season 13, Episode 5).

From the given choices it has to be the Jaguar XFR. Its one of the most gorgeous cars I have seen in recent times and boy does it have the power to match. The M5 comes second for me.

EDIT: Poll added to thread

For me it has to be the Jaguar XFR. Love the looks , has a lovely engine with the most torque. It is class personified. And it also super comfortable on the inside.And it is also well prices compared to the other beasts.
