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: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=149766?tid=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..1.* 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.

Camaro Dyno-Mite: Hennessey HPE550 Camaro Dyno Smack Down
MORE HENNESSEY Camaro INFO @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://blogs.edmunds.com/straightline/2009/06/hennessey-hpe550-Camaro-smacks-down-the-Dyno.html?tid=edmunds.il.home.ph otopanel..1.* What's that? You're a power addict and the 426 horsepower with which Chevrolet endowed the 2010 Camaro SS is weaksauce? Here's your fix. The orange 2010 Camaro SS you see above has been given the full Texas-style treatment, and I'm not talking about barbeque. Hennessey Performance Engineering, headquartered in Sealy, Texas, coerces more power out of more than just Mopars and Mitsubishis these days, and he's turned his attention to Chevy's latest pony car. It's called the Hennessey HPE550. The centerpiece of the conversion is the breathing enhancement delivered by a Magnuson Roots-style blower and liquid-to-air Intercooler. Supplementing the 6 psi generated by the Supercharger is a cold-air intake and free-flow Exhaust. Owner John Hennessey tells us that the package swells peak power to 562 hp as measured at the flywheel. Aftermarket horsepower claims are notoriously optimistic, so we did the obvious thing and strapped it to MD Automotive's Dynojet in Westminster, California. The result was anything but weaksauce. Click the jump for the Dyno chart and video. First, a caveat. Before we did any Dyno runs, we noticed that the insides of our HPE550 test car's tailpipes were curiously free of the typical fine sooty layer that coats every car that runs on pump gas. Instead, they were fairly clean save for a light gray coating.





The New Jaguar: 2009 Jaguar XF Supercharged by Inside Line
http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=125955?tid= edmunds.il.home.photopanel..3.* Bruised and bloodied, Jaguar's fate now rests in the hands of Indian automaker Tata. The only certainty of its future is that it is uncertain. Now forget about all that. Turn your attention to the product, which is ultimately the most critical aspect of an automaker's success. Here we have the 2009 Jaguar XF Supercharged, purportedly ready to do battle with the big German sedans like the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, cars that know the luxury sedan game. Only time will tell the story of Jaguar as it enters the next phase of its existence, but we can peek a few pages forward simply by testing the fruits of its labor.





Fast & Furious 4: BMW M5
MORE FAST & FURIOUS @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=144147 Every Fast & Furious film has to have at least one over-the-top street race with multiple cars careening along wildly, putting the lives of the drivers (and anyone else who happens to be on the street at the time) in mortal danger. And when it comes to mortal danger, what better car to face it in than a BMW M5? Fortunately for Fast & Furious, the 400-horsepower, V8-powered E39 generation (1998-2003) M5 is still a 5 Series sedan and acquiring and redecorating much cheaper 528i and 540i models was easy. So the production bought three old 540i sedans and four 528i models and redecorated them with orange and black paint and 19-inch wheels. Of these seven BMWs, six were destroyed. That includes three dropped off a bridge onto a road down below. The M5 was another car that just seemed to emerge naturally during the casting process — there wasn't anyone who didn't want the big, powerful BMW in the show. And some design inspiration obviously came from German tuning house Lumma Design's CLR 500 R-S version of the current E60 M5 that was shown during 2007. Of all the cars in the film, this one may be the least believable because of all its body roll during the action scenes. It looks like an M5 with the swaybars disconnected. Or a 528i with M5 front fenders.





E-xciting! Mercedes E-Class Coupe @ 2009 Geneva Auto Show
MORE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/geneva/2009/2010mercedesbenzecl asscoupe.html Now here's a face that's going to take some getting used to. We haven't seen this many rhomboids on the front of a car since, well, ever. The nose of the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is closely related to the rhomboid-rific one on the recently unveiled E-Class sedan. Perhaps that's not a surprise, given that the coupe shares the sedan's new W212 platform and most of its name. This move reflects the intention of Mercedes to tie its coupes and convertibles more obviously to the high-volume sedans on which they are based. The CLK — which this vehicle will replace — is not obviously related to any other Mercedes model in name or style. The new coupe is just about 2 inches longer and wider than the CLK. Thanks to a wheelbase increase of similar measure, there should be more room inside the E-Class coupe than the CLK. Stretched over those dimensions is a body with a whole lot of surface excitement going on, so you cannot accuse Mercedes of going conservative with this one. Thankfully, Mercedes has retained the graceful look of the CLK roof — there's no B-pillar and both front and rear windows go down. Mercedes notes that the coupe has the lowest drag coefficient of any series production car in the world at 0.24 Cd. Wouldn't have guessed that just by looking, eh? But sometimes we prefer a different approach to punching a hole in the air — it's called horsepower. We'll have to wait until the E63 coupe arrives a little later, with an estimated 500 horsepower, to conduct that particular test of power vs. wind resistance. When the E-Class coupe goes on sale in the U.S. in June, it will be offered in two models, the E350 with a 268-hp V6 and the E550 with a 382-hp V8. The new coupes will come with a host of standard and optional new equipment, including suspension with adaptive dampers, a feature meant to register any drowsiness by the driver, and an adaptive high beam for the headlights that uses a camera to scan for oncoming traffic and dips the high beams accordingly.

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 horsepower. What 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 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!

2013 Lexus GS350 vs Jaguar XF Mashup Review: And the best sport luxury sedan is...?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Lexus GS350 is all new and completely redesigned from the ground up. Gone is the stodgy car of old replaced by a much more passionate and sporty Lexus. The 2012 Jaguar XF has gotten a minor facelift but the heart of the car remains the same with a 385 HP V8 under the hood. Both of these cars drive for that perfect balance of sport performance and opulent luxury so which one is better? Check out another unique TFLcar mashup review as we compare the two luxury sedans to see which one deserves to be called the best sport luxury sedan.





2012 Audi A6 versus BMW 535i review: And the best luxury sedan is...
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new BMW 535i has almost always been the benchmark for all other mid-sized luxury sedans. But for 2012 the all new Audi A6 is taking direct aim at the BMW buyer as well as the 535i. The Audi brings to the table a 310 HP supercharged powerplant, an 8 speed automatic transmission and of course Quattro all-wheel-drive. But to not to be outdone the BMW has all of the same stuff but instead of a supercharged engine it comes with a turbo. So which one is the better car?
