best sleeper car ever? M5 vs E63 wagons
in this Top Gear car videos we’g got: BMW M5 Touring vs Mercedes Benz E63 AMG wagons. we’ll try prove that the best sleeper there is … is a station wagon with a v8 & it’s from … germany ;). (i know … big block fans must be cringing in theirs skins … just to think of such audacity) but i love the mighty growl of the V8 … even if it was made in mexico.
no matter if you call it “big saloon station wagon” , sedan combi or estate car (as they call it in england). i always loved the “they never see you coming” image of a station wagon. i mean, just look at all SUVs - they are a higher & shorter version of wagons.
take the idea of “there is no replacement for displacement” and apply it to prestigious german names, such as Mercedes or BMW - you’ll get the best of two worlds. dr. jackel & mr hide … take your family to school & come back through the twisties, swinging your tail … on the way back. at least that’s how you can explain owning an M5 or an AMG as a “family car” to your wife

hats off to Top Gear for once again innovating Car TV. we have never seen night drifting or going 175mph (281 km/h) … at night !!! (at a conveniently “temporarily closed airport”) - wow!
… having said all that … do notice the mafia like sounding music in the background … do i hear russian balalaika?Stumble it!
