Geez, youre not reading the numbers right.
also, who cares about the s420 or the 745i, theyre both pathetic compared to these.
The s600 has more power, is lighter(the s600 sedan is lighter to the tune of 500 plus pounds, and we havent even gotten the coupe, the 7 series is all SEDANS)
With the engine that bmw has they shouldve gotten way more power, the benz makes all that power with a 5.5L, bmw has a 6.0L. the bmw has 48 valves, benz 36. benz has a SOHC, bmw has a DOHC. plus, the final drive ratio in the benz is better for fuel economy as well. I guess bmw must be ashamed of the mpg they get because they dont list it for those sedans.
Ive done the math, and mercedes makes a HELL of alot better car than bmw ever thought of making.
