It's not everyday that the peeps from Motor Trend take three of the most powerful sedans in the world and pit them against each other both on the street and on the track.
When it does happen though, one of the cars is imminently the AMG version of a Mercedes-Benz, with the CLS 63 AMG S-Model being the one that has to defend the honor of the three-pointed star.

Its twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 is the torquiest and most powerful in the Motor Trend comparison, with no less than 585 hp (577 bhp) and 800 Nm (590 lb ft) of torque at all its four wheels disposal.

The other two contenders are nothing to be ashamed about either, with the Audi RS7 developing 560 hp and 700 Nm (516 lb ft) of torque and the Porsche Panamera Turbo 520 hp and 700 Nm (516 lb ft) of torque.

Now, since this is Motor Trend and they are universally known for either receiving modified cars instead of stock ones or having the worst acceleration measuring devices in the history of car magazines (apart from Car and Driver), the comparison between the above three cars is pretty much invalid from the beginning.

This doesn't mean that you shouldn't read Jonny Lieberman's piece though, as all three cars are some of the best four-wheeled creations from each of their manufacturers' stable and the comparison is well written.
