BMW M cars vs. Mercedes AMG cars

In Motor trend's latest issue (Apr '02), there is an interesting comparison test that pits the BMW M cars against their AMG counterparts

Here are the lineups:

1) M5 vs E55
2) M Roadster vs SLK32
3) M3 vs CLK55
4) X5 4.6is (not really an M, but they included it) vs. ML55

They choose the M car over the AMG car in all four matchups (even the non-M X5 :D ), a clean sweep! :thumb:

I know Motor Trend isn't the most objective magazine, but I still found it interesting that they didn't give any of the AMG versions the nod... :)

In all 4 of these categories, the M car is better :thumb:

No stick shift means it's a poseur for the crown. Noticed Porsche 911 turbos up to this iteration does not even offer an automatic transmission? Ferrari's and Lambo's NEVER offered automatic transmissons. BMW ///Ms never come with automatic transmissions.
You are wrong on several counts...

The 911 Turbo is now offered in Tiptronic
The Ferrar 456 GTA is Automatic, and I belive there was an auto model in the 80s too...
The E36 M3 was offered in automatic in the '95 coupe and the sedans and cabrios...
