Chris Harris of DRIVE goes behind the wheel of the BMW M6 Coupe and compare it against the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG. Interesting tidbit? Combined, the two cars have over 1100 horsepower.

The M6 Coupe is powered by a high-revving 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology, consisting of Twin Scroll Twin Turbo technology, cross-bank exhaust manifold, High Precision Direct Petrol Injection and VALVETRONIC fully variable valve control. The cars deliver 560 hp at 6,000 – 7,000 rpm and maximum torque of 680 Newton meters (502 lb-ft) from 1,500 rpm.

Based on the SL-Class that debuted at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, the SL63 AMG packs a twin-turbo 5.5 liter V8 producing 529 horsepower (557 with AMG Performance Package) and 664 lb-ft of torque. The new SL63 AMG can rocket from 0-62 mph in 4.3 seconds (4.2 with the optional AMG Performance Package) while returning 30 percent better fuel economy. Top speed rises to 186 mph.

    Interesting, Has Mercedes taken a turn for the better or the BMW a turn for the worse?

    As always the M doesn’t stand a single chance versus the mighty AMG . The SL beats the pathetic M6 with all respects.

      Enjoy your land barge with the three pointed star on it fan boy. BTW even my lawyer and dentist think the SL is the German Corvette, old, balding, golf playing drivers with blond, over tan, leather faced wives in the passenger seat. Again enjoy-a-doodle-do!!!

      • Auto Reviewer

        Say what you want but the fact is that the SL easily eats for breakfast the pathetic M6 on the race track. And in this segment it’s all that really matters. And I’ll expand: AMG is one head above M. The M isn’t even able to make a super car, s keep quiet, BMW dreamer.

          so loser, did Mercedes made your life better? You still sound like a pathetic troll Mercedes fanboy who hang around the BMW forum and promote Mercedes. To me that speaks what kind of person you are. You can’t even afford these cars, so shut up.

    • mercedes freight lines

      on every post/forum there’s always some trolls/retard like MB fanboy who calls himself auto reviewer. The irony is that he knows nothing about cars and wears a Mercedes skirt and pom poms. Mercedes has been in the bottom in reliability for years now and like Cadillac is always owned by OLD people and POSEURS. Like YOU!

    is a draw…is fair……two monsters from germany….

    When I started to watch i told myself, merc will be better but he’ll take m6 :D, i was right.

    BMW simply saves money, bmw doesn’t have money from parent company because bmw doesn’t have any like merc or audi or lexus. There’s no more e63 light aluminium chassis, no v10 etc. it’s just big heavy two door 5er with m badge, under that beauty body is basic structure from f01 and tuned engine from x6! gearbox is from M3!

    It isn’t made to be a car to crush GTR or R8 or any Merc! It’s simpy M6, gran tourer with huge amount of power just like original!

    Me…I would buy GT-R, I think nissan is awful company BUT I RESPECT their GT-R it is AMAZING CAR!!! And I would rather get that unique engine, gearbox, chassis etc. than retuned parts like m6

      !! Sorry but you talk so much nonsense !! take it to another place.. we have no idea what you mean !! What makes you an expert in knowing what BMW does!! I just cant read such silly things by those EXPERTS like you ! You are just another hater like many of them that come to this blog to tell their silly stories….

      the mere fact that the m6 is a 4 seater made on the same platform as a 7 5 5gt can out perform a purpose built sports car. says it all about bmw. whats going to happen when bmw ag(which have a lot of money by the way and dont have to be subsidized from a truck compamy) which is the parent company of rolls royce mini bmw, bmw mottrad. have rolled out the wraith coupe and drop head. and the i8’s. the M brand will be set free. with all those years of making sports cars from everyday sedens that beat all comers on the track and road. will come together and make road cars like no other. until then wait for the m6 csl theres a thought. or bmw might drop the m3 tri turbo in the i8 that would take it near the 600 bhp mark very nice

        —(which have a lot of money by the way and dont have to be subsidized from a truck compamy)—-

        hahah, that’s true!

        new bmw’s might be too heavy, and lost their NA high ref sound but company is still on it’s own unlike others and that says a lot!!!

        And yes:–the mere fact that the m6 is a 4 seater made on the same platform as a 7 5 5gt can out perform a purpose built sports car. says it all about bmw.–

        that’s true again, it really is good machine!
        and that’s what i’m saying, m6 is amazing and it looks just epic but if i want true performance gt-r is just unbeatable

  • empower

    plus he admited he never played with the settings and he still enjoyed the m6 more in its softest settings. bmw you make carbon fiber now, you have tried it out more on the m3 crt plus the i cars and the roofs of some m’s. now make a csl m6

  • viper

    bmw is a two door 4 seater while merc is a two door and two seater , bmw looks bigger , feels bigger and is a heavier car , Im not sure if its fair to even compare it with the SL (icon) , both are stunning cars but as the guy said Id probably take the M6 and later wished I didn’t , that could be true but it all comes down to a personal taste and mine is I’d rather have both
