The largets difference between the points where the Slalom track, where BMW M5 got 8/10 and Mercedes 2/10. Also, despite the Performance Package upgraded brakes on the CLS63 AMG it receives 5/10 for braking 100-0 meters, as opposed to the M5 which receives 8/10. Mercedes looses points vs the M5 in categories Hockenheim, price/performance ratio and Driving fun. The only category which the BMW M5 looses to the CLS63 AMG is everydaydriving with one point, where Mercedes receives 9/10 and BMW 8/10.

Well it isn't much of a matchup to put the CLS vs. 5-series. Even the E-class doesn't stand a chance against the M5.

BMW - driver's car
Mercedes-Benz - sporty 'lounge' cars.

Why would the E class have a better chance?

Does everyone feel the result will be the same when the RS6 returns?

Will the M5 still be able to see it off as easily or will it be a battle the M5 can't win. I think the M5 will still win the position of Driver's choice (rwd = no brainer) but ultimately it will lose to the RS6 on pure performance.

It will be hard to argue against 580hp and 650Nm of torque, regardless of it's weight.
