BMW M6 Verses Mercedes SL63 AMG and Jaguar XKR-S

Thereís no shortage of performance in this test. Each of these cars has a great V8 exhaust note, a serious price tag and power to spare. They look the part, too, so picking a winner comes down to which feels the most special behind the wheel.

Surprisingly, that isnít the BMW M6. Itís packed with clever technology, has a fantastic engine and gearbox, but itís too heavy and lacks the agility of its significantly lighter rivals.

On the other hand, the Jaguar offers a simple combination of entertaining handling and massive performance, but the cabin is dated and itís hard to justify the hefty price increase over the already impressive standard XKR.

So the SL63 is the clear winner. It proves once again that AMG now makes cars with agile handling to match their famed engines. This is a mighty performance car that retains the sense of class youíd expect from an SL.
