Unfortunately for BMW fanboys, the shorter gear ratios of the Merc’s nine-speed auto and its marginally lower curb weight contribute to it being quicker in every respect. The quarter-mile for the Bimmer and the Merc are dispatched in 10.95 and 10.78 seconds respectively, while getting to 155 mph takes the M8 Comp 17.9 seconds. The GT 63 S manages this in 17.55. BMW owners can, however, take solace in the fact that the two cars very close, as well as the fact that the Bimmer is considerably cheaper by over 10 grand. It’s speedometer also seems more accurate. But which would you choose? For us, both are brilliant, so can we remain neutral on this one?
