2007 Bentley Continental GT vs. 2007 Mercedes-Benz CL600
For Edmunds' Inside Line article:
No one shops for the 510-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V12-powered Mercedes-Benz CL600 or 552-hp, twin-turbocharged W12-powered Bentley Continental GT based on price. After all, if you can afford either of these true hardtop coupes you can afford to buy them both — on the same day, using a black American Express card. These are cars for rich people. Well, not just rich, but Gordon Gekko-spec liquid. Rich enough to have their own jets. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. Players.
Comparison Test: 2007 Honda Fit Sport vs. 2008 Scion xD
Kids today, eh? The 2007 Honda Fit Sport and 2008 Scion xD are meant to
grab the attention of a generation that knows how to play it loud. These
cars are supposed to be all about watts, speaker count and iPod inputs.
Yet they are both so sensible that you'd swear the coveted Gen-Y market was
filled with aging no-bones consumers more interested in price and
practicality than loud music. And in fact, older drivers are proving to be
just as enthusiastic about sensible, stripped-down cars as younger drivers.
2007 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series vs. 2007 BMW M6
If the 2007 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series and 2007 BMW M6 could talk
trash, things would get ugly in a hurry.
The big-bore Benz would snort something about its 465 pound-feet of grunt,
the kind of power that would leave the Bimmer's flame-surfaced sheet metal
in a smoldering pile on the road. The high-strung M6 would make a remark
about the Benz's boy-racer fender flares, silly bodywork vents and
decidedly uncivilized Exhaust note.
2007 BMW M6 Convertible vs. 2007 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG
It's not easy to compare the 2007 BMW M6 Convertible and the 2007
Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG. The whole idea teeters on the brink of the
How relevant is a comparison of a $108,795 BMW M6 to a $189,375 Mercedes
SL? With about a thousand M6 convertibles and less than half as many SL65
AMGs expected to arrive this year, the pool of potential buyers won't get
the soles of your feet wet.
Euro-Clash: Mercedes E550 Sport vs. BMW 550i Sport vs. Jaguar XF Premium
2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Sport vs. 2009 BMW 550i Sport vs. 2010 Jaguar XF
Premium @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Building an ideal executive-style luxury sedan is not an easy task for a
carmaker. If the car turns out too soft and isolated, you lose enthusiasts
who aren't quite ready to retire in a Lexus. Too complex or high-strung and
you risk alienating your technology-challenged, soft-in-the-middle buyers
who expect a measure of mindless comfort. Get the balance just right, and
your five-passenger $60,000 midsize sedan will both impress with remarkable
dynamics and indulge with palpable comfort.
We've gathered three such vehicles for this comparison: the 2009 BMW 550i,
2010 Jaguar XF Premium and 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Sport.
The 2009 BMW 550i is widely regarded as the benchmark among sporting luxury
sedans with its imposing modern design, 360-horsepower 4.8-liter V8 and
legendary sporting dynamics. For a car that's been around for five years,
its reputation remains consistently impressive.
All-new in '09, the Jaguar XF now is available in a midlevel model, and
this Jaguar XF Premium includes not only a new 385-hp direct-injection
5.0-liter V8 but also more standard features. Riding a 1st-place finish
from the last time we collected four similar cars in 2008, the Brit car
should be taken seriously.
The new-generation 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Sport stands a very good chance
of improving on its previous 3rd-place finish. Sure, the 382-hp 5.5-liter
V8 is a carryover item from the outgoing E-Class, yet Mercedes-Benz has
spent a considerable sum to refine this ninth-generation E-Class into a car
meant to define this segment of sedans.
BMW & Benz Rev Up @ the Track - BMW 750Li and Mercedes S550
BMW VS. MERCEDES TRACK SMACK @ INSIDELINE.COM:
These are the big guns from BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Well, not the biggest
guns, but with prices near or above the $100,000 range, they're big enough.
The BMW 750Li is all-new for 2009 and looking better than ever. Its 400-horsepower twin-turbo V8 makes it the closest thing to a
"Motorsport" 7 Series we have ever seen. The Mercedes-Benz S550 is getting
a face-lift next year, but the current model has held up well. And with a
of its own, it doesn't give up much to the new BMW.
One look at the track numbers and you'll be amazed what these 2.25-ton
sedans can do. From 13-second quarter-mile sprints to 110-foot stops from
60 mph, these two sedans are perfect examples of what can be accomplished
when money is no object. Full details after the jump.

2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG! Head 2 Head Ep. 46
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman heads to Graz, Austria, the
home of one of the world's toughest off roaders - the Mercedes-Benz
G-Wagen. The last time a G63 appeared on Head 2 Head, it beat out the
all-new and quite excellent Range Rover Supercharged. This time, however,
the G63 faces even stiffer competition — another G63. Of course, this
particular G has an extra axle, because it's the $500,000+ G63 AMG 6x6!
Costing roughly twice as much as the awesome twin-turbo V-12 powered G65, the 6x6 is the ultimate
expression of the Gelandewagen... on paper. But is it actually any good? Is
the 6x6 as awesome as it looks, or is the regular G-Wagen just too well
thought out? And why is the 6-wheeled truck always jumping in the air like
that? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

2007 Bentley Continental GT Start Up and City Driving
I get to ride along with a sales man in the 2007 Continental GT, do a
little sound system demo and just enjoy the ride of one of the most solid
feeling cars I've ever been in! Incredible that's for sure. Also, just in
case you noticed, I was a little excited haha. I didn't play a whole lot
with the radio either/nav system either. One thing that was interesting
about it though is that instead of sifting through all the FM frequencies,
it displays only the stations that come in in the particular area, thus
making it easier to sift through local stations.
