You probably guessed it after today's unveil of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe, here's the ultimate photo comparison between the Merc, the Audi RS5 and the beloved E92 M3 in Competition Package trim.

Contrary to earlier rumors, the C63 AMG Coupe is powered by Merc's famous 6.2l V8, resulting in an maximum output of 451hp (481hp with optional AMG Development Pack) and a maximum torque of 443 lb-ft. Mercedes claims 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds. The C63 Coupe will be make its US showroom debut in September 2011.

The Audi RS5 uses an improved version of their well-known 4.2l V8. With 450bhp, it's on par with the C63 AMG while the maximum torque of 317 lb-ft is on par with the E92 M3 and more than 100 lb-ft short of the C63. The RS5 is the only AWD car out of the pack. Audi officially confirmed that they'll bring the car to the US, but likely not before 2012.

Enough talking, here are the photos you've been waiting for.
