actually, only the E55 is newer than the other 2, the RS6 came out awhile ago, it just never reached the the shore of north america until last year

Well here is what I am thinking. If the M5 was only a little bit slower than the E55, then wont the extra 100 hp and extra tq bump it up so its faster?? Because if I can think back to that video, then the E55 only walked the M5, it didnt beat it by that much.

No, m5 accelerated faster than rs6 but e55 just flew away!
Thats wrong!! First of all, the RS6 accelerates faster than the M5, and secondly the E55 is just slightly quicker than the RS6!

source#1. Motortrend tested RS6 vs. E55.
RS6 0-60 in 4.3 sec. E55 0-60 in 4.2 sec.

source #2. Car and Driver compared, RS6, M5, E55, S-type R
RS6 0-60 in 4.4 sec. E55 0-60 in 4.3 sec. M5 0-60 in 4.9 sec

so there
