MotorTrend’s Jonny Lieberman is joined by Mike Shaffer and two extremely potent hyper sedans, the 2014 BMW M5 Competition and the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model. Between the two of them, these two mighty Germans produce 1152horsepower and 1092 pound-feet of torque. On paper.

After a day of horsing around/testing Shaffer and Lieberman grow suspicious of each twin-turbo V-8’s actual output. So, they take them to the dyno gurus at K&N engineering to learn what’s what. The results very well may shock and amaze you.

However, the boys come to the conclusion that numbers are only exactly that: only numbers, and numbers only matter so much. One true test of a super sedan is how it handles a twisting stretch of tarmac. The other is how much you yearn for the car after you’ve walked away from it. How much the keys itch in your pocket. While the results are definitive, this Head 2 Head is much closer than most.

    since the first time i saw f10 5er i didn’t like it, and new m5 is pathetic car, not it’s just tuned 550i and it sounds awful and it’s too heavy, rs6 and amg S just kills it.

    and if you want powerslide you don’t need 2 ton saloon to do that…

    old m5 were just kings this new one is peasant

      Who cares about your comment Mr. Norbert Haug? BMW beat both Audi and Mercedes-Benz at the DTM for 2012 and 2013 in front of millions of German and foreign spectators including Mercedes-Benz AMG Directors, Seniors, etc…, so do you think your comment will really have any meaning?

      The only thing peasant here is Mateo’s English…..and remember, opinions are like bung holes; everyone has one and they all stink

    I would have preferred a little more raw from the competition pack, but then again, these guys chose the AMG cause it’s more comfortable!!?? They’re both great cars, and kudos to AMG for coming up with this effort. But, drawing my own conclusion from what they were saying, I’d be choosing the M5.

  • Roland Renno

    First of all, who are those two idiots to begin with, especially the one with his beard. What an anti-pathetic loser. He just wrote down with his crappy hand writings the numbers he wanted. Who tells me these numbers are correct? So he pretended on whatever he wanted and did his review. Oh my God, if Einstein was alive, he would have committed suicide against such Geniuses. How come Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG delivers from its 5.5 liter V8 the same amount of power than a 4.4 liter V8 from BMW. I mean the latter deserves an applause.

      i agree… they’re both idiots.

    Roland, you seem very bitter that your m5 got a good spanking by amg once more :-)
