The comparison we've finally been waiting for is here courtesy of the latest Autobild. The review should follow on their website in perhaps a week or two.

NEWSBOT sources have, however, given us the insights into the article together with the results.

1st place: BMW 750i (677 / 750 points)

2nd place: Mercedes S500 (669 / 750 points)

3rd place: Lexus LS460 (621 / 750 points)
