E 63 AMG S-Model Versus Jaguar XFR-S by Auto Express

We know, we are constantly bashing British car magazines for being way too nationalistic in their car reviews, especially when comparing a British vehicle with its German counterpart.

The following comparison, on the other hand, is one of the very few examples when the Brits keep their pride on a leash, which should be a pretty good reason to acknowledge just how epic is the new Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG S-Model.

The comparo's result is the more impressive as the E 63 AMG S-Model in right-hand drive version isn't available with the 4Matic all-wheel drive system that it uses in all the other LHD countries where it's being sold.

Powered by a twin-turbocharged, 5.5-liter V8 with direct injection, this worthy of “The hammer” legacy model is developing no less than 585 hp (577 bhp) and 800 Nm (590 lb ft) of torque.

Auto Express pitted it against the most hardcore version of the Jaguar XF, also known as the XFR-S. You already know who won, but the Brits' review makes for an interesting read.
