And with both costing just shy of £90,000, these two rivals couldn’t be closer. Time to find out which is fastest on track…

      At this point and this level of tech they're essentially identical cars. It all comes down to preference on looks & luxury & feel. Personally I'd pick the M5, just because I like how it looks.

        Against the M5 Comp Mercs need the Black Series. E63 came first, then BMW released the M5, then the E63S and then M5 Comp and then the upcoming E63S Black.. I mean both are so quick. It's just that Mercedes has always found ways to win where BMW has failed to, F1, DTM, GT3 unfair or not, Mercs is quicker than expected

          So the the base BMW m5 has less power, less torque... and is just as fast as Mercedes non base E63 s... Mercedes do better.

                              Ok lets be honest the m5 is clearly the winner sure 0.1 seconds faster then the m5 not a big diffrence but 9 seconds on the nurburgring for the bmw thats a diffrence. Bmw have always been faster on track and now it beats it on the straight in Top Gear. Imagine the competion which we got now and it crushes the e class. Mercedes need to step up their game!

                                Why do reviews like this do only one lap per vehicle? Timings for each of 4 or 5 laps would give at least some idea of the variations to be expected from, admittedly, the combined factors involved. That way we’d get some hold on the significance of the differences of the order of 0.1 seconds which I’m guessing in this case is statistically no different from zero. For comparison, the best of human reaction times is about 0.1 seconds, the time it takes for a penny to hit the ground when dropped from a height of 2 inches.

Its nice to see cars this closely matched, because it makes both manafacturers work harder and eventually come up with something even better in all ways. And you childish fanboys have to respect both because they are sensational and I would be happy with either one of them. Cars this sofisticated can hardly become better than they already are...
