Well, that settles it.
Apart from the Tesla Model X, probably among the hottest drag strip superstars of this year are the Mercedes-AMG E63 S and the BMW M5. Motoring sites just can't get enough pitting the two against each other.
Both four-door super saloons could smoke out the Autobahn, but it seems like the AMG E63 S had the upper hand in the previous races, prompting people to look for the M5 Competition package.
One of the motoring sites who did the drag race between the German super saloons heard all of you. CarWow did their homework and finally got their hands on an M5 Competition package to face the AMG E63 S. As a bonus, both cars are in a very black exterior finish. Nice.
To recall, in the UK site's previous race between the Merc and the standard M5, the Stuttgart-based automaker prevailed by a hair. Well, not anymore – with extra 26 horses under its bonnet, the M5 Competition is ready to beat AMG E63 S. But will it? Let's crunch the numbers here quickly.
The BMW M5 Competition produces 617 bhp and the same 553 pound-feet of torque. With the launch control on, it can do 0-62 mph within 3.3 seconds, which is 0.1 seconds quicker than the standard M5.
The Mercedes-AMG E63 S, on the other hand, churns out a maximum of 603 bhp but with a major advantage in torque numbers at 627 lb-ft. Although, it's important to note that its acceleration rate is on the same ground with the M5 Competition at 3.3 seconds.
