2014 Audi RS5 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe! - Head 2 Head Ep. 51
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman sets out to discover which
German hot-rod-personal-luxury-coupe is the best you can get. The 507 Coupe
is the last iteration of the W204 C63. With the exception of the very
limited-run Black Series, it's the best C63 that AMG has ever done. Under
its hood sits a hand-built, 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 good for 507
more do you want? Perhaps something more high-tech, and that's where the
Audi RS5 comes in. The sexy coupe from Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm features
a 4.2-liter V-8 that spits out 450 hp. That¹s less power than the 507
Coupe makes, true, but the Audi also features AWD, a dual-clutch
transmission, bigger wheels and tires, plus a trick torque-vectoring rear
differential. Which one is quicker? Which one is more fun to drive? Which
one is best? Watch and find out!

2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class - NEW Technology Information Video
With the three engineering priorities "Intelligent Drive", "Efficient
Technology" and "Essence of Luxury", the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class extends
the boundaries of technology on many levels. The S-Class is not just a
technological spearhead for Mercedes-Benz but for automotive development as
As with every generation before it, the customers expect the new S-Class to
set standards across the board to retain its accolade as "the best
automobile in the world". Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of
Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars: "Rather than being
about safety or aesthetics, power or efficiency, comfort or dynamism, our
aspirations were 'the best or nothing' in every respect. No other car
stands for the Mercedes-Benz brand promise more than the S-Class."
Perfection to the last detail results in "The Essence of Luxury". This
pursuit of the best is particularly noticeable in the interior: whether it
is the seats or the air conditioning, the controls or the design, the
infotainment or the comfort and safety in the rear - new ideas, their
painstaking realisation, and highest perceived quality underpin the high
standards that the engineers have set for the Mercedes-Benz flagship model
- and for themselves.
The same applies to safety. What started with PRE-SAFE® ten years ago and
continued with DISTRONIC PLUS has now resulted in a new dimension of
motoring: comfort and safety are merged into one. Mercedes-Benz refers to
this as "Intelligent Drive". A whole host of new systems makes the new
S-Class even more comfortable and even safer.
