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