BMW M3 takes on X5 M: Who Wins?
Have you been to the BMW Performance Driving School in South Carolina yet?
If not please put it on your bucket list. Automotive Rhythms experienced
two days at the school's adult playground with their M vehicles. We matched
the 2011 M3 Coupe -- fitted with a 414 hp 4.0 liter V8 -- alongside the AWD
X5 M with its 4.4 liter V8 and 555 twin turbocharged horses. Each vehicle was pushed to
its respective limits proving why BMW is deserving of repping The Ultimate

BMW X5M vs. X6M Part.1 ★★★★★
Just a few weeks ago, the famous host of the equally famous show Top Gear,
Jeremy Clarkson, went on a rampage against the BMW X6, the same very
controversial Sports Activity Coupe from BMW that kept the headlines of
many automotive magazines for years now.
One of the major complaints against the X6 was in the off-road capability
of the car and its inability to perform well in winter conditions. To prove
the point, Clarkson went to the extreme of taking the X6 all the way up
into the Alps. Here is a quick recap of what we published at the time:
2014 BMW M5 Competition vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model! - Head 2 Head Ep. 44
On this episode of Head 2 Head Jonny Lieberman is joined by Mike Shaffer
and two extremely potent hyper sedans, the 2014 BMW M5 Competition and the
2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model. Between the two of them, these two
mighty Germans produce 1152horsepower and 1092
pound-feet of torque. On paper. After a day of horsing around/testing
Shaffer and Lieberman grow suspicious of each twin-turbo V-8's actual output. So, they take them to
the Dyno gurus at K&N
engineering to learn what's what. The results very well may shock and amaze
you. However, the boys come to the conclusion that numbers are only exactly
that: only numbers, and numbers only matter so much. One true test of a
super sedan is how it handles a twisting stretch of tarmac. The other is
how much you yearn for the car after you've walked away from it. How much
the keys itch in your pocket. While the results are definitive, this Head 2
Head is much closer than most. Have a watch!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
