The latest episode of “Car and Driver: Abroad” put together two of the most impressive models offered by BMW in 2012, the M5 sports sedan and the M6 Coupe. The two are compared exterior, the interior and then, of course, taken to the race track and pushed to their limits.

The M5 is powered by a 4.4-liter V-8 engine that delivers a total of 560 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. The model will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 190 mph. The same engine is also used for the M6 Coupe, but the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in 4.2 seconds and top speed is limited to 155 mph, or 189 mph with M Performance Package activated.

Which one do you think is the best? Check the video and you will find out!

I think that for some people is more important the appearance. Too bad their shallowness influences their thinking regarding cars. That’s just sad..

Otto, what are you thinking? That’s like so irrelevant!
You shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover! You might apply this to cars, as well...

After watching this video, I think that the Coupe one is better.At least from my point of view.It is more valuable

Maybe if they had switched the colours betwen these two cars, would look much better each of them!!

The 2012 m5 seems more good, as design

However, I think the M5 is better.
