I would go for the RS6, but it would have to be in its avant form.

if it were just looks , yes its a Beemer for me any day . But coming to handling and quick around a track , Audi has done a brilliant job here . The quatro all wheel drive make it the best handler around the corners . The rear wheel driven M3 loses out here on these sharp corners .

My vote ,

Audi rs6
Merc E63
Jaguar XFR

In between how to do the poll ?

The Jag XF-R. Value for money in its segment! The Beamer will be a close second followed by the Audi and then the Merc. Actually, I would like to have all these in my garage. So when do we start making contributions to me?

Default E63 Amg

E63 for me as I drove one yesterday! I know, lucky me!

You drive it slow, the V8 rumble is there, but not so prominent. Floor the pedal, off the rocket goes roaring to glory. I also drove the C63, but E63 is a different beast altogether. Luxury, performance and practicality combined. Attched is a picture with me in the driving seat.

From the above poll, I wouldn't really take any of them. So I've created my own 3-car super-sedan garage! Hope it's not OT.

For me, it has to be the Jaguar XJ Supersport. 500+ horses from a supercharged V8!

POLL: the best 500+ hp super sedan in the world-xj_grass_fog_1262b2.jpg

Other options? Well.. in that case, I have a soft spot for the gorgeous Maserati Quattroporte GTS Yes I know, the Quattroporte produces only 440 horses. But just look at it! And since 440 seems 'less', I'd throw in a set of Tubis, tweak the air-intake and mess around with the ECU a little. 500 is on the cards!

POLL: the best 500+ hp super sedan in the world-maserati_quattroportesportsgts_r5.jpg

And when it comes to super-saloons, one cannot ignore the legendary E38 750i. Yes, its 7 litre V12 makes only 320 odd horses, but it was considered to be a super-saloon back in the day, and it still is IMO.

E63, for me atleast until the new F10 based M5 is out. Absolutely love the engine note, and the brutal power delivery also the car might get better once the new 5.5L engine is added.

Rest of the order will be XF-R then M5 and I would not consider the RS6 at all no matter how good it is in terms of performance.

e63 AMG for me! Most practical, reasonable FE and highest performance too - perfect performance sleeper, and a handcrafted V8 engine ;-)

For me
e63 AMG > Jag XF-R > M5 > RS6
