When it comes to sport sedans, BMW used to be king.

From the motor to the steering to the suspension, the blue and white just nailed it.

But, the tides have changed and it is not the only game in town.

With competition as hot as ever from the likes of Audi and Mercedes-AMG, the all-new M5 has some work to do. So, did it deliver? Only one way to find out...

The folks at Autocar recently put the M5 and the E63 S through some testing, back-to-back, to find out. While I won't spoil verdict for you, I will say this: I have never seen a review video where the presenters are visibly having difficulty deciding WHICH vehicle is the better one to choose.

Usually, it's a pretty clear cut choice. Not this time, Spies. IF you're in the market for one of these vehicles, it looks like you'll have a tough decision ahead of yourself.

That said, WHICH super sport sedan would YOU have? The M5 or the AMG?

The new BMW M5 is a terrific sports saloon. Or super saloon. Or sports sedan. Call it what you will: it's a big four-door executive car with a stonky twin-turbocharged V8 making shed loads of power, which it puts it through all four wheels - unless you stick it in rear-drive mode, in which case it only puts it through the rear wheels, obvs.

And if that sounds familiar, that's because it's exactly what the Mercedes-AMG E63 saloon does too: what with its four-door body, luxurious executive car interior, twin-turbocharged V8 engine and four-wheel drive with the option of rear ... well, you get the idea.

But which of these big saloons is best? Both as an everyday executive car, but also as an enjoyable car to drive. Step forward Autocar's two video-ready testers, as we find out which you should have: BMW M5 or Mercedes-AMG E63 S.
