Video: Motor Trend Puts 2014 Audi RS5 Vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe

It is a battle of the heavyweight German super coupes ; the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG 507 against the Audi RS5 . In this episode of Motor Trend’s Head2Head, they take these two V-8-powered monsters and try to decide which is best. Will Audi’s Quattro AWD help it pull ahead, or does that incredible engine in the AMG take top honors.

I won’t ruin anything for anybody, but we can look at some of the high points.

Jonny Lieberman takes the wheel to give these cars a thorough once-over and he comes to a lot of conclusions I agree with. Firstly, the Audi is the better looking car. Not in the crazy “go-fast” way, but as a genuinely pretty car the Audi easily takes top honors.

The Mercedes may lose in style, but Jonny says it walks away with better braking and steering feel. It also doesn’t suffer from the understeer that the Audi does.

It is quite the close battle; click play to see who comes out on top.
