Thumbs up

Its been a while I've logged in on Team-BHP, was in town and read through AutoCar UK so thought will post the scans here, I am sure lots of people would be interested in this. (though I havent done a search b4 posting, so if its a repost of this article, please go easy on me.. * )

The Ultimate Performance Sedan Battle :
BMW (E60) M5 vs. Maserati Quattroporte vs. Mercedes E55 AMG

p.s. - Yeah I know Its not an Ultimate Battle if there isnt an Audi RS6. Anyway Enjoy the Scans, not sure when I'll be coming back to Team-BHP, hope ya'll miss PS! *: - )

Note from the Admin : It is against this boards policies to post complete articles - Scanned or otherwise. Do refrain from this in the future

Well talking about this article, the problems with the 3 cars on brakes are not funny. The M5 suffers from fade problems cuz it has a twin piston calliper, the E55's are too grabby and the Quattroporte's is inadequate.

Dipen, you are right about it. Here's proof of it:

M5 vs E55 vs RS6 vs S Type-R

I somehow would go for the Maserati, it's got soul and a sense of occasion and you can sing with that engine !

Side profile..especially doors of the new 5 look very bland. No character.
