It is a very tough one.
The New E looks really good to me and the 63 AMG engine is an amazing one.
The M5 is an amazing car with classy and elegant looks.
The RS6 is again an amazing car. Great car but could have been better in the handling terms when compared to the BMW. No one can come close to the M in that
The Jag, I wont comment. Its just Fabulous.

But i think I'd put it this way,

BMW M3 followed by Audi RS6 , Jag XF-R, Mercedes E63 AMG ( Its boring compared to the others)

My choice:

1. E63 AMG
2. M5
3. RS6 &
4. XF-R

But if I'm given a chance to choose from other brands, then my first choice defenetly will be S65 AMG!

BTW: where is the poll?

Although I'm not a fan of fantasy polls, this one's hard to resist. After all, here's a bunch of practical, powerful machines which can be used as a daily drive. I would take the M5 no doubt, in spite of its comparatively archaic seven-speed SMG transmission which can't match the tech and speed offered by the new dual-clutch systems. It would be the perfect if offered with a reliable dual-clutch box, or better still- a proper ol' school stick; all those 507 horses there to be harnessed with delicate throttle and clutch modulation. With DTC off- it would be pure bliss. The 530d is so much fun with an auto, I cant even think what an animal the M would be with a stick....

P.S. the poll isn't there...

I love the Viper, it is not from the European stable it is the good old american muscle! It is sad that they have decided to shut it down. May be once the American auto industry recovers they will probably revive it.

Look at it! It is fabulous.

I'd have to go with the Jaguar XF-R here. That's because it's the best looking amongst the four, both inside and outside, is rarer (considering almost everyone here is gonna pick the BMW or the Mercedes), sounds great, and is the cheapest of the four (I think).

And did I mention that it's Indian owned?

it's the jag for me.The others i am sure are better engineered cars, but for some reason the jag holds my attention. Maybe because it's a far cry from the old jag sedans that gave the impression that they were built for boring old bankers/professors. The one in black sure oozes an attitude and presence and i like that

Where is my Bentley option?

You can't say 500hp and Sedan in the same sentence and not mention Bentley!

The JAG for sure... I love the stance, the presence, the looks.
Audi is too understated for a 572 bhp car.
My list:
1) Jag XF-R
2) Merc AMG
3)BMW M5
4) Audi RS6

Jaguar XFR all the way! it looks fabulous! and performs beautifully!

Audi RS6 - it is the reason why we are able to use understated and brutal in the same sentence.

The Merc just doesn't cut it for me. The only thing i like about the car are those wheels.

The M5 is just looking too old there.

In as much as i like the jag for its looks and a truly beautiful interior i would go in for the audi rs6.That 5 L v10 is an amazing engine.

I don't think the Viper qualifies as a sedan!
