Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG is powered by a hand-built 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 which produces 577 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque in the top-of-the-line S-Model. The E63 AMG run from 0 to 60 mph from a complete standstill in 3.6 or 3.5 seconds and tops out at 155 or 186 mph for the standard and S-Models, respectively.
The F10 M5 uses the 4.4-liter TwinTurbo V8 powerplant producing 560 hp and 501 lb-ft of torque.
So we’re looking at two performance sedans with similar power output and a torque advantage in favor of the E63 AMG. But how does all of this translate into a straight line race? Can the F10 M5 keep up with the Benz?
Let’s find out.
