The S6 actually slots between the 550 and M5. From a handing standpoint it is an M5 competitor, from a straight line speed standpoint is is almost exactly half way between the 550 and M5.

I know that some folks will be looking up at the S6 compared to a 550, and some folks will be looking down at the S6 compared to a M5. .
I disagree, I think in all aspects the 550x Msport and S6 are about as close as you can get in direct competition.

Considering such a large price difference the 550x Msport is the clear winner
