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.

Honda Accord V8

The BMW front looks best. The angle of the rear in the pics makes the E92's rear look pretty lame.

The exteriors are a toss up, but the interior clearly goes to the C63 imo.

love the styling of RS5, but M3 wins after that Topgear comparo. Merc is off the radar.

I think the interior on the C63 is a win win; especially that steering wheel.

M3 is starting to look dated and I will be first in line to test out a C63 coupe...

Exterior: RS5 or M3 just cuz those lines in my opinion on the c63 are sedan lines forced into a coupe.
Interior: RS5 for sure.

Bottom line: The C63 IMHO isn't meant to be a coupe. Really isn't.

Could they have picked a more ugly e92 color combo for the shoot?

That MB is pretty cool. I think that the MB and Audi interiors take the win.

Yeah wtf if anything I was going to say that color would skew the comparison unfairly towards the M3. They're all equally good looking in my eyes.

Exterior is M3 for me. Interior Audi of Merc, they both look good in my opinion. Love the Merc steering wheel but I'm not a fan of the gauges or shifter. If only the RS5 had the flat bottom from the Euro spec RS4 or Audi R8.

Interior of the C63 is too awesome, it looks like it was handcrafted.

I would of used these standard wheels instead for the photo shoot



as those optional 19 inch wheels don't really match the car.

I don't know about you guys but when you put all three cars side-by-side, the LED's look very lame. I know there is some variant in the F12 6er but I hope they don't put it into the 3er's. I think it takes away the raw sporty look.
