I think the outcome will be

M3 for best handling
C63 for best power
RS4 somewhere in between

I wouldn't be surprised if Clarkson likes the RS4 the best.... historically he hates BMW and MB.

Wouldn't be surprising in the least to see the M3 in last, or the C63 for that matter. I think he'd hump an RS4 without having second thoughts. I still think he's the best host though. Biased, yes. Brilliant, no doubt.

I don't necessarily agree. He does like Mercedes, as he owns an SL. He also loved the SLR, except the brakes.

My guess:

C63
M3
RS4

Best regards,

Ok all, Lets make this thread more interesting...

Lets rank the order of the cars as TG will see it.... we all know the M3 is the best of this trio but that can always differ from how TG and Clarkson feel.

Heres my ranking:

1. C63
2. RS4
3. M3


What are your guesses????

Yeah the handling is better b/c of the awd system. M3 will be much more fun to drive though, which is good since clarkson loves doing power slides. It's a tough call which he'll like best

M3 brilliant in power slide
C63 raw power
he always loved RS4

I've heard Clarkson speak highly of the C63 on a video from the London MPH Show on youtube. He also refers to M3 drivers as "cocks."



I bet C63 earns top honors. Really looking forward to that episode.
