Guys, we are today comparing the two high profile contenders in the sedan category; the one is the Audi RS6 Avant and the other is Mercedes E63 AMG Wagon(Ahh, My God; Well that’s not it’s actual meaning). First up, we have the Audi RS6 which is powered by a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 good for 552HP and 516 lb-ft of torque. The second challenger the Mercedes E63 AMG is powered by a 5.5L twin-turbo V8 and is good for 518HP and 516 lb-ft of torque, however, with the Mercedes, there is an optional AMG performance package that puts the power to 550HP and 590 lb-ft of torque. The RS6 Avant goes from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds and the E 63 AMG goes from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, a very close battle. The RS6 More >
The 2.2-litre, four-cylinder Peugeot/Citroën/Ford-designed turbo diesel accounts for the majority of sales of 2012 Jaguar XF Sportbrake. It has been specially built to Jaguar’s specifications including a new oil sump, and sound-deadening covers for the top of the engine and timing chest. The new start-stop system monitors 75 inputs including differences between cabin and exterior temperatures and battery condition before determining whether to operate. There’s a clever control of the starter pinion and a second battery to speed restarts, while the system also engages Park and switches off the engine if the seat-belt and foot brake are released. It works unobtrusively, although occasionally More >
2013 Mercedes C63 AMG is perhaps not entirely fair to say that the C63 is the first AMG C-class to be thoroughly and comprehensively re-engineered to suit its market, because both the C32 and C55 were excellent cars. So while the 6.3-litre V8 engine very much remains the centerpiece of the car, it’s no longer the dominant factor. The engine itself, claims AMG, develops around 30 per cent more torque than any other rival in the marketplace. So while the 451bhp at 6800rpm is deeply impressive (the M3 has 414bhp at 8300rpm), it’s the 443lb ft at 5000rpm that hits hardest. And the real killer is that at least 370lb ft of this is available between 2000 and 6250rpm; the M3’s 4.0-litre V8 More >
We have two nice contenders here. Not only are they both expensive premium “4 door coupes” but the styling leaves people with their mouths open anytime these cars, pass them on the road. They both are also powered by force induction motors, one with a supercharger and the other with a turbocharger. They share the same German heritage, and virtually the same prestige, so let’s take a look at these two sexy beasts. First, we have the Audi A7 Sportback 3.0T which is powered by a 3.0L engine strapped to a supercharged that is good for 310HP and 325 lb-ft of torque. The challenger, the BMW Gran Coupe 640I is powered by a turbocharged engine good for 315HP and 330 lb-ft of torque making both More >
Many people considered the Audi Quattro Concept a couple of years back at the Paris Motor show, to be a home run for Audi, and rightfully so. It was a good looking car, that showed the direction the brand was going to head into down the road. It used styling of the current Audi, and a mixture of styling ideas that Audi was looking at implementing down the road. One thing was for sure with the styling: it was definitely an Audi. Many have also made speculation that the Audi Quattro, was the glimpse of a new high performance model, that would slot underneath the king Audi R8. It was dubbed many names, it was called the new Quattro, but many people went with the name Audi R4, as that was the More >
