    We really wanted to bring you this film. There were some technical complications with the audio which meant scrapping the whole piece or presenting it like this. We opted to make the most of it we could so you could still see the film. Thanks for bearing with us on this one.

      You should have added subtitling of the conversation which is every easy to do.

      Bit pointless all round then with the audi being an outgoing, outdated model.

    Honestly I’d take either but omg someone tell me the name of that blue. If only both cars were in that blue cuz I think even a 2007 Renault Cleo would look good in that blue

    Paint the Audi black and the Mercedes blue and the Mercedes would be the nicer looking car. I think, people here judge a lot by the color of the car.

    • Holo40
      Holo40 15 days ago

      Exactly, colour is everything. (Imagine the RS6 in white - disgusting)

    Well the Audi is missing its usual 4.2l V8 turbo so that'll cost the RS6 some pace, the presenter says get the carbon ceramic brakes but your much better off with the Audisport gearbox, prop shaft, differential, drive shafts and hubs, to increase efficency by 35% with the same horsepower, until then you don't need carbon brakes. Trust me.

    • Holo40

      It’s why we’re all waiting for the new RS6, if you wanted an RS6 to beat the E63 you could if you tuned and changed it

    • Holo40
      Holo40 15 days ago

      It’s all about the stock car, if you mod them then it’s just down to who’s got the best tune omg use you’re brain

    • Holo40
      Holo40 15 days ago

      4.2 ltr? Where the hell did you read that??? If I put a v10 twin turbo in the RS6 or course it would beat all the competition, same goes for any other estate

    E63s NEEDS to be a sedan, the estate looks like a funeral car unfortunally. Rs6 c7 remains the best looking wagon of all time.

    My God its taken Merc and AMG 2 generations to get to a car that is the equal of the RS6, that is testament to how good this last of the line thunder wagon was and is. The RS6 still looks better outside and although the Merc has installed its latest interiors in their car and by definition they will be more modern, its hardly an interior to rave about, as as I'd wager as many people who like the Two tablets jammed upright in the tarts boudoir, there will be equally as many who hate it. The iconic RS6 is the king of uber wagons, the E63s is the pretender here and holds the crown just until the new RS hits the tarmac.

    Good video and all... but he’s just WRONG! Lol in my opinion the rs6 is way better regarding looks, performance and quality of drive. The AMG looked like a funeral car lol

      The Audi yes but not the merc. Didn’t you hear how he said the merc is light and sharp going round corners? Didn’t you see it drifting? Or are you deaf and blind

  • Erik Sørensen
    Erik Sørensen Year ago

    Just to make clear - i much prefer mercedes to audi but this comparison is ridiculous. Yes the 2017 E63 might beat the 2012 RS6, but when the next gen rs6 comes out in ‘19 with a 40 hp advantage to the merc and a newer more high tech interior thingsll look different. As i said i prefer mercedes, but the rs6 is the king of supersaloons

      Take a guess the 1 that sounds better, is faster in every way, can drift and has the better interior OR the car that simply looks good on the outside?

    If I could only have one car and had the money. E63s Estate hands down. Brutal power, intoxicating v8 soundtrack, next level interior, practical space, RWD drift mode, and it even looks gorgeous. A solid home run and dare I say the best road car ever made.

    • Holo40
      Holo40 15 days ago

      Definitely, even though it doesn’t look as good as the RS6, it still looks insane for an estate

    • Holo40
      Holo40 15 days ago

      Yeah, if you wanted to you could make the E63S look better than the RS6. Lower the suspension, add aggressive bumpers and you have a sick car

  • MadProductionsink
    MadProductionsink Year ago +1

    I don't get Audis obsession with estates. The RS6 is an estate unlike its main competitors the M5 and the E63, the A3 "sportback" is a mini estate, the Q7 is just like a jacked up estate. And if you ask most people they would tell you that estates are lame and used by market sellers to sell their fruit and vegetables or for construction workers.

    • Holo40
      Holo40 15 days ago

      I couldn’t of said it better, I guess Audi hate saloons, or they’re too lazy to design something new for a change, all Audi’s look the same

      They do don’t worry, those rims are the stock ones because they were too poor to get a merc with nice rims

    Hey I'm concerned that the essence of the car review is lost in these videos. Don't get me wrong, we all look forward to seeing the acceleration or the vehicles and them going sideways but at the end of the day the practicality of cars are not shown. just specs hurled and skids shown.....

    Luckily, the GTI is a great lightweight, torquey alternative take on the “practical sports wagon” for us mere mortals. If I didn’t have need for a truck as my practical vehicle, I’d definitely have one in the garage alongside something sleek, RWD and highly impractical :)

    @Henry Catchpole
    Ref. the comment of the one car garage, I agree these offer practicality and the performance of a sports car. There is however a different kind of estate for the one car garage. The ones based on Hot hatches. Then you can have similar (s)pace but a car that weighs 500kg less then these. That should help? 4wd DSG you have the Golf R estate and Leon Cupra ST 4drive. Myself I drive a FWD manual Cupra ST that weighs 550-650kg less than the real weights of each of these respectively, or similar to a GT4 or an Evora S. Not saying this is better, but you can have space, good handling and a weight that isn't north of 2 tonnes... And where some complain modern HH are too refined, perhaps they become perfectly balanced as an estate...
    And with HH it is usually easy to add a little power reliably too, realistically making then just as fast on real roads as the above... Something to have a closer look at as they don't get so much attention?
