03 OTHER OPTIONS YOU MAY CONSIDER

-

1. THE OBVIOUS:

AUDI S8 V10

Another luxury saloon with 10 cylinders in its snout, the S8 V10 followed the M5 to market by a year with a more relaxed mien, making 530Nm at a lazy 3000rpm. RS6 offers same engine in smaller package... for more money.

2. THE UNEXPECTED:

MERCEDES-AMG E63/CLK 63 Daimler’s M5 rival of the time didn’t boast an exotic V10, but was instead armed with AMG’s lauded M156 6.2-litre V8. The CLK 63 offers much of the same appeal, but with slick coupe styling compared to the E63’s sedan status.

3. THE ODDBALL:

DODGE VIPER RT/10

The upper ranges of the V10 Bimmer market will also see you within reach of an imported example of the original SR1 Viper. It won’t be anywhere near as luxurious or comfy, but it’s got a V10 and just 5988 were built from ’92-’95.
