If Audi’s antiquated S6 (435 hp) and BMW's outmoded M5 (500 hp) models seem a bit tame, the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG offers refreshingly new and powerful alternative. With 518 hp and 465 ft-lbs of...

The BMW M6 Convertible may be getting a little long in tooth, but the V10 engine still offers enough oomph for serious wind-in-the-hair acceleration and a thoroughly enjoyable exhaust note. When the...
