Pic Of The Week: E63 AMG Takes On M5 And XFR

Today's POTW features three undeniably super super-saloons, but which is the, er, super-est? Well, according to our chums over on Autocar magazine, they reckon it ain't the new M5.

Which, as far s super-saloon group tests go, rather re-writes the form book. In fact, we reckon that the giving of the nod to the E63 AMG (now with 5.5-litre twin-turbo power, remember, just like the M5), is quite an historic victory for the big Merc, no matter how slender the margin - and it is a skin-of-teeth type victory.

As for the Jaguar? Well, it comes in third place but is by no means disgraced (and quite right, too).

But as well as a no-doubt controversial verdict, the group test in this week's issue of Autocar also allows us to present you with this rather pretty picture. You can see more of them, and read more about the whys and wherefores of the test, by downloading Autocar's digital edition (or by going to an actual shop to buy an actual, printed copy - we hear such things are still possible...)

    The Jag for its looks, the AMG for its NA motor and the BM because its an M5 and the power. I dont think I could split these enough to choose just one.

    The more I see the Jaaaaaag, the more I like it.

    The Merc and BMW seem to lack soul.
