In the world of high-end large luxury sedans, there's a battle being fought. While cars like the Audi A8, BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class are continually pushing the boundaries of what's possible from a luxury and technology standpoint, they're also doing things one would think is unfathomable for vehicles of their stature and weight.

They're hitting 60 mph in under four seconds and now are equipped with forced induction powerplants churning out approximately 600 horsepower. It's like we're in the twilight zone.


While I am sure a lot of folks are inclined to select the AMG variant given that it's been the standard for quite some time, I will contest that. Having recently drive the all-new 7-Series I was seriously impressed with the way it drives. While the S feels like a large luxury sedan that's been given some mods to make it perform better, the 7 now feels like a sports car that just so happens to have an extended wheelbase.

The Audi, well, I haven't driven an S8 or S8 Plus for that matter because they're that rare. I'll let you know when I know.

That said, WHICH German large luxury supercar would YOU want to wake up to in the morning? The ALPINA B7? Audi S8 Plus? Mercedes-AMG S63?
