    Panamera Turbo would have been a truer competitor from a performance standpoint. Sadly, it's far more expensive than these bad boys.

    Nice! Look like the M5 trap speed is a tad faster then the E63. They shouldve used the Perf pack E63.

    In the forum thread that I saw this on, apparently the E63 did have the PP. I'm not sure how valid that is. I'll try to dig up the article and post it here.

    I doubt it. The perf pack Cls63 traps 123. Unlike the E63 which is 200+lbs lighter. So that means that E63 traps 125? Where does it show the new M5 traps 126+?

    The M5 out traps the E63 and is ahead by more than a car length at the end. The E63 wouldn't have caught the M5, remember they are running 1,000M which is almost 2/3's of a mile. Panamera turbo would easily win but costs easy 30k more. CTS V probably comes in third but costs 30k less.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    M5 is no joke and they should've tested against the Turbo Panamera.

    EVO magazine decides to pit the Panamera S against the F10 BMW M5, Mercedes E63 AMG with Performance Package, and Jaguar XFR

    Now what is wrong with this picture? We have four very fast sports sedans here. All of them have forced induction except for 1. All of them are the most powerful available from the respective manufacturer except for one. Which one is at a disadvantage? The Porsche Panamera S which does not have turbos or a supercharger and is outgunned by the 3 models in the Panamera lineup: the Panamera GTS, Panamara Turbo, and Panamera Turbo S.

    The F10 M5 wins the drag race which is surprising against a performance package E63 which is a very strong car putting out around 516 wheel horsepower. Chalk that up to the M5's dual clutch transmission. The Mercedes comes in second with the Jaguar following it. Bringing up the rear surprising absolutely nobody is the Panamera S. The dream drag race would have been to include the Panamera Turbo S. Yes, it is way more expensive but this is a battle of the best not the greatest value. We blow our noses at EVO.

    Is this the Performance Package E63 or just standard? I am getting conflicting info.
