Whenever reviewers stack a BMW up against an Audi or Mercedes-Benz, it always seems to be much of the same story.
The BMW is the more engaging product to drive, it's lighter and it definitely turns a quicker lap time. But as BMW has aged, the times have changed. Its vehicles have new driving dynamics and its competition has refocused their goals after years of second -- or worse -- place.
You know what they say, second is the first loser.
That said, when AutoExpress put the all-new BMW M6 convertible up against the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG, I wanted to see one thing: Would something finally change?
See for yourself.
Autoexpress puts two potent German convertibles to the test - the 2013 M6 Convertible (F12) against the 2013 Mercedes SL63 AMG.
On paper, the F12 M6 features a 4.4L V8 pushing 560hp/680 Nm torque [all specs], while the SL63 is powered by a 5.4L V8 with 556hp/800 Nm torque.
The 2013 M6 convertible carries an MSRP of $113,995 in the US, compared to the SL63's sticker price of $146,695. Watch Autexpress' impressions below.
