    Is that a 4 door Mustang?

    I like it, i would LOVE IT if it was called a 6 series which is what this thing actually is.

  • TheBelltower

    It’s a good looking thing, but very ordinary and mainstream. The e31 8 series was a truly special model that people aspired to own. I can’t imaging a valet parking the new 8 in the front row, as was common with the original 8. The new one is not as exclusive.

    So for the second generation of the pretty German sedan wars this is how I have them ranked:

    1) Audi RS7
    2) Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe
    3T) Porsche Panamera Turbo
    3T) BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe
    5) Mercedes AMG CLS 53 Coupe
