Despite having the power to slay supercars, the BMW M5 is comfortable and no harder to drive than a regular 5 Series. However, it’s not quite as exciting as the Mercedes-AMG E63

Trim:

M5

As standard, the comprehensive equipment list includes keyless entry and go, 20in alloys, bespoke M bumpers and side skirts, and a limited-slip differential. That’s not all, though, with adaptive LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control and full Merino leather sports seats (heated with electric adjustment and memory function for the front), a 10.3in widescreen infotainment system and a Harman Kardon sound system also included.

Engine:

M5

The 592bhp 4.4-litre turbocharged V8 delivers virtually instantaneous response before the power comes. And what power – it fires you up the road like the angry hand of God has just given you an almighty smack on the bottom, with a 0-62mph dash of just 3.2sec, while top speed can be up to 190mph, too. The synthesised engine note doesn’t sound as exciting as the Mercedes-AMG E63’s glorious rumble and the eight-speed auto gearbox isn’t as immediate at times as the Porsche Panamera Turbo’s, though.
