I mean, I'd take the C63 based on the V8 alone. The new RS5 does look and sound really good, though.

Both cars are sweet, but I think I'd go for the AMG. And OMG, I'd love to drive in Wales, what a beautiful country. I kind of like the new approach to the series.

That Merc is downright hideous.

Anyways, I've driven the C63 S Coupe, and while cool, it didn't exactly light my fire. Part of that may have been because I had driven the AMG GTS the day before, but still. I can't even bring myself to get over the looks.

RS5 for me.

Pretty impressed with how the RS5 has AWD and manages to weigh 36xx lbs.

Surely Merc could hit those HP numbers with a NA V8? Why the turbos?

Efficiency.

I'd take the merc minus the decals, and wheel trim.

Oh seems like the new guy can drive.

The first step was ditching Cammisa. Now follow that up with the ridding of Lieberman. Then I'll enjoy Motor Trend online.
