M5 ownz, I told you people. Its the Best M5 yet. The way it combines technology, and sortiness with an everyday saloon is incredible. this car will eat pretty much anything(stock) on the track. And for all the 7 spd SMG haters, its fast, really fast...

Yeah its a defenetly a piece of art! But we will see how the engine would hold and the new SMGIII, Maybe in a 3-4 years i'll switch who knows But for now E55 is the best, Cant beat the comfort and effortless acceleration!

I think both cars are beautiful, and any one of us would be lucky to drive one. I would go for the M5 personally, but that Merc is really nice. Thanks for the article, I admittedly dont know too much about Mercedes (specs and stuff) so it was nice to learn something.

I'm sorry but that is one ugly Benz, and I love Benz too so it's hard for me to say it, but it's ****ing ugly!

M5 for life!

How could something so gorgeous(like the previous E55 in the pic), turn into something so fugly?


Current automobile designs have reached an all-time low.

Im sorry GEEE$, but i have to disagree, that previous gen e55, was UGLY. Its one of three benz's I hate with a passion. (previous gen S, previous gen E and previous gen SLK)

btw thats CLS not E55, so it has nothing to do with the car you posted

Oh I know they're different automobiles s-fing...I was simply showing where Mercedes(and BMW, & AUDI for that matter) have gone. I just had that pic readily available so I used an older merc for comparison sake.

I think they are all travelling in a downward spiral. They certainly aren't becoming classic sedans, again, only IMO.

i hated the CLS looks also when i saw it on pics.. but it's really 'different' when i saw it in person..

i drove the CSL500 couple of weeks ago.. and it was a damn good ride.. and i think the rear is great.. but i also love the new looks of the new M5.. (and the CSL).. can't wait to get mine..

What worries me are the low torque numbers compared to the benz. Sure 500hp is sweet but torque is just as important. Anyway...guess I should keep my mouth shut before getting a drive in it.
