I prefer AMG's engines. M-engines are overrated.

That new 6.3 liter V8 by AMG which makes 500+ hp and has a 7,200 redline excites me more than the M5's V10. It has more power, more torque, and it's lighter.

M5's V10 is overrated.

Overall, I prefer M cars.

Alright, here's some more reasons why I like them more, the Bimmer's better because it isn't much heavier, although she has a smaller engine (displacement) than the AMG it still makes like 505hp, versus the Benz's 469 (Nowhere near 500+), and the AMG's 7200 RPM redline, is still lower than the M5's, going 1000RPM higher than the Merc...Just that the E55 has more torque, and hits it at lower RPM than the BMW.

EDIT: Just realized I was looking at the older AMG's with the 5.7L engine

I always used to prefer BMW over Mercedes, but now it seems that you have to put alot more money into a BMW to make it something special. The Mercs just look more prestigeous too in my opinion, and the BMW's far too common!

I have always liked BMW's manual Gearbox and the way they shift far more than Mercs older style 'clonkey' manual box. As far as the performance of the two packs go, I think I'd be inclined to go for the BMW, obviously depending on which model of course. I think if we're talking M3 Vs C55 (think that's it lol), I'd go BMW, but if we're taking M5 Vs E55 I'd go for the Merc, especially sinse the Merc is available with the Bi-Turbo unit!.....I also think that the reline is too low on the Mercs

I dont understand 100 hp per litre naturally aspirated is very rare how is the m engines overated and amg not when they use forced induction to duplicate the same thing. the e39 was the only recent m engine that dont fall in cat with this theory. 5.0 400bhp every fast merc has forced inductions take the turbo and superchargers from mb and u got a moderately fast luxury car youd have to take a plug from the m to reduce perf. its all natural that 2 me is astounding naturally aspirated engines always being compard to forced induction engines that says it all.

The 6.3 liter Merc engine that I was celebrating is a NA engine dude. This engine will go into a majority of their recent AMG vehicles. The 6.3 liter is physically smaller, lighter, more powerful, and more torquey than any BMW M engine. Shut it.

I care more about hp density and power to weight ratio.
The 5.0 BMW V10 makes 500 hp or 100hp per liter and only like 384ft/lbs, but the motor is still bigger and heavier than the LS7 which is 7.0 and make 500/500.

The only time i think hp/liter matters even a little is when you are racing in a displacement restricted class.
