Mercedes-AMG S63 vs BMW M760i: Which German Super Limo Is The Quickest?

German big luxury cars can be quite absurd, especially if you start looking at their most powerful versions, like this Mercedes-AMG S63 and this BMW M760Li.

It’s only natural to be mesmerized by both cars, especially after you take a look at their stats: the S63 takes everything that’s great about the S-Class and adds some AMG craziness into the mix, while the M760Li was the fastest-accelerating M car, at least up until the new M5 showed up.

Carwow compared the two luxury bahnstormers on the Bruntingthorpe proving ground in the UK with a drag race, a rolling race and a brake test from 70mph. Since this is UK, the S63 is rear-driven only, as Mercedes doesn’t offer an all-wheel drive in the country, leaving the BMW M760Li with a grip advantage, at least on the drag race.

The Mercedes-AMG S63 is powered by the company’s widely used twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, in this case offering 603 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. The BMW M760Li xDrive on the other hand is powered by a massive twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 with 592 hp and 590 lb-ft.

Does the all-wheel drive BMW M760 wipe the floor with the rear-driven Mercedes-AMG S63? There’s only one way to find out.

        if i were chaffered. i wouldn’t want the driver to speed up. unless if it’s emergency.

    For those crying foul over the disappearing V12, this is exactly why. The V12’s can’t keep up with these twin turbo V8’s and with the hybrid versions of these V8’s coming along, what’s the point of the V12. They are also lighter and sound better in many cases.

      The point of the V12 is absolute buttery smoothness, and the prestige that comes along with owning the twelve cylinder.

      Nothing sounds better than a V12.
