This is a abundant time to be animate if you’re a car enthusiast with a appropriate budget. I mean, appealing abundant annihilation you could appetite exists. Appetite a about 800-horsepower auto with a warranty? No problem. Appetite a turbocharged, V8-powered base wagon? You’ve got a few options there, too.

What if you appetite article absolutely specific, like a four-door sedan-coupe-thing, with a minimum of 500 application and bags of technology? Well, abundant news, chum, because you’re baby for choice. That’s abnormally accurate now that BMW has appear its brand-spanking-new 2020 M8 Gran Coupe, but how able-bodied does it analyze to its German rivals, the Audi RS7, Mercedes-AMG GT63 4-Door and Porsche Panamera Turbo?

The name of the bold actuality is turbocharged V8. The BMW’s S63 4.4-liter agent makes 600 horsepower, or 617 hp if you opt for the Competition trim. The Mercedes-AMG assemblage is abate at aloof 4.0 liters, but makes added ability at 639 hp in GT63 S trim, or 577 hp for the accepted GT63. The Audi is no slouch, but can’t able the 600-hp mark, admitting additionally application a 4.0-liter V8. The Porsche is the atomic able car of the group, interestingly, with aloof 550 hp on tap, admitting to be fair, this isn’t the top-tier Panamera we’re talking about. (Since the Turbo S E-Hybrid uses a different, electrified powertrain, we’re excluding it from this comparison.) 

The transmissions are additionally similar. Both the BMW and the Audi use eight-speed automated transmissions, while the Mercedes’ auto is a nine-speed. The Porsche is the alone agent in the acreage with a real-deal dual-clutch manual (now with eight advanced gears), and it’s a honey of a gearbox. 

All of our admirable contestants are packing all-wheel drive, which agency that all of them can accomplish the dart to 60 mph at near-nosebleed-inducing speeds. The M8 Gran Auto is the quickest, at 3.1 abnormal for the accepted car and 3.0 for the Competition, but the Mercedes isn’t far behind. The GT63 will hit 60 mph in 3.3 seconds, while the S adaptation does it in 3.1. The RS7, meanwhile, will do this dart in a slower-but-not-exactly-slow 3.6 seconds, and the Porsche will bout that. 

We alive in America, with no complete highways on which to drive, so top acceleration is a basically extraneous metric for performance. Still, it’s account pointing out that the Mercedes-AMG will do a bluntly asinine 195 mph, and the Audi isn’t far behind, hitting the accepted bank at 190. The BMW M8 Gran Auto and the Panamera Turbo will bout the Audi, but all will alone hit those speeds if their cyberbanking limiters accept been removed.

All of our cars alpha at prices able-bodied over $100,000, so tech is a fair metric by which to adjudicator them. The advantageous affair for buyers in this articulation is that it’s appealing adamantine to go wrong, and mostly, it comes bottomward to which infotainment arrangement you like the best. 

The BMW M8 Gran Coupe, being, as we said, brand-spanking-new, has BMW’s latest and greatest iDrive 7 system. This tech is accessible to use, acknowledging and awful configurable. It alike has a new bogus intelligence function, activated by saying, “Hey, BMW,” to admission connected-car features.

Audi’s interiors are amid the best in the biz, and the RS7’s is absolutely no exception. A ample allotment of that comes bottomward to the way in which Audi was able to accommodate the abounding screens of its excellent MMI Touch Response system. In fact, Roadshow’s editors like this arrangement so much, we gave it a 2019 Shift Award for best in-car tech.

Porsche active its infotainment arrangement about recently, and the aftereffect is a ample abandonment from the about button-heavy blueprint of Porsches past. This new Porsche Communication Management touchscreen arrangement is alluringly chip into the cockpit, and it’s big, at over 12 inches wide.

Finally, Mercedes’ arrangement is arguably the atomic alluringly chip into the GT63’s interior, and it’s apparently the oldest because — somewhat inexplicably — Mercedes autonomous to use its crumbling Comand arrangement instead of its adorned (and absolutely great) MBUX tech. Is it a accord breaker on an contrarily abundant car? Nope, but it’s a absolute letdown.

Well, friends, it’s no abstruse that none of these cars are cheap, admitting that’s to be expected. But which car gives you the best for your money?

To start, it’s account advertence that the M8 Gran Auto manages to bastard in at $3,000 beneath than its two-doored sibling, with an aperture amount of $130,000, excluding destination. If you charge the Competition package’s added 17 hp and upgraded abeyance components, again you’ll accept to carapace out an added $13,000 on top of that.

The Audi RS7 hasn’t accustomed official US-market pricing, but we’re ballparking an MSRP of about $115,000 afore options. That agency that while it’s a bit bottomward on ability compared with the Benz and the Bimmer, it’s additionally a little beneath damaging to your wallet, and that’s not nothing.

The Mercedes-AMG GT63 4-Door is as cher as its name is long, with a starting MSRP of $136,500 for the accepted adaptation and $159,000 for the S, and a about all-encompassing account of accessible options can advance the amount up over $200,000. Still, the GT63 S is the best able out of all the competitors here, and that’s gotta calculation for something.

The Porsche manages to aloof bastard beneath the allurement amount for the Mercedes-AMG, but because about aggregate is offered as an alternative extra, apprehend that amount to alpha aggressive quickly. We’d be abashed if castigation didn’t end up topping $200,000. Still, for that money, you’re accepting Porsche’s allegorical body affection and an autogenous that’s amid the best in the segment.
