Audi S6
The 2013 Audi S6 is a scorching luxury saloon that somehow blasts its way to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. The S6 brings 420 horsepower and quattro all-wheel drive together to create one of the best blends of performance and utility the world has ever seen. Equally as important as the power is the 2013 Audi S6 diet, which should be published and shelved in Self Help sections across the country. The 2007 S6 weighed a whopping 4,528 lbs., heavy even for a mid-sized luxury sedan. By contrast, the 2013 Audi S6 has dropped nearly 300 lbs. and checks in at a respectable 4,255.

The S6 is indeed a great car, but the BMW M5 is the original performance sedan—and BMW comes correct once again with the newest iteration of an icon. This time around, a potent 560-horsepower V8 engine provides the grunt work while the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission delivers a smooth automatic or dynamic manual mode. Power is surely important, but the M5 sets itself apart with unmatched throttle response, steering precision and driving excitement.

Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
Fortune favors the bold, which is great, because there is absolutely nothing subtle about the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. Its angular design is a constant threat to give onlookers whiplash, and the sound from the 556-horsepower V8 is an American triumph. Cadillac wanted to make the CTS-V Coupe capable on demanding turns, as well, and outfitted it with its heralded Magnetic Ride Control for a smooth drive that’s truly befitting the “Standard of the World” motto.
