2009 BMW M5 vs. Its Competition

2009 BMW M5

The Audi S6 has a massively powerful V-8, but it's still a step slower than the BMW.

The newly minted 500-horsepower Jaguar XF-R is far more handsome.

The Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG comes closest to the performance of the BMW M5 and looks better going about it.
