In of the latest video commercials, Pontiac takes a stab at BMW 5 Series. In this particular video, Pontiac is trying to convince the people that their latest G8 GT model is a better buy, from a price and speed point of view.

The Pontiac G8 GT has a base price of $30,000, while the luxurious, but slower, 5 Series starts at $58,500. I have to agree, the video is hilarious and I aplaud Pontiac's marketing department for coming up with this. But, there is no way I would believe the G8 is a better car than the 550i for example. 

Look at the engine, the german manufacturer managed to squeeze out 360 ponies from their V8 4.8L, while the american automaker managed to the same horsepower, but from a 6.L engine.

I know that I am little biased and that this is a BMW Blog, but either way, I still have more confidence in the fine german engineering.

Anyway, watch the video, it is worth it though.
