The BMW M5 is most often compared to the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, which is a similar high-powered mid-size sedan with a six-figure price tag.
The E63 makes all the right noises for us, and a wagon variant is drool-worthy.
The Lexus GS-F is another high-performance sedan with a hulking V-8—its remarkably capable but also heavy.
The Cadillac CTS-V is the wild child of the bunch, it’s the least restrained but also the oldest.
The Dodge Charger Hellcat is a muscle car in sedan’s clothing, it’s an outlier in its unrefined character but also a low price.
