OMGHi2U 2008 BMW M3 vs. 2008 Lexus IS F vs. 2008 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG

CN: "The Lexus and the Mercedes feel like performance versions created out of something else. The M3 feels like it was born this way." Ed Loh's summary is even more succinct: "The Lexus and Mercedes are great hot-rod sedans. The M3 is a race car with four doors."

Because the CTS-V would murder those three.

doesn't the CTS-V compete with the M5, E63? I know it's around the same price as the M3, C36, etc.

Yeah, seems like the primary goal for the car is to knock down the M5... Things are looking pretty favorable for it to do so too.

You'd think with new technology, someone could figure out how to make a high HP, light weight car. Suppose GM has done well with the ZO6?

We have been testing the new c63 @ work. It's pretty damn impressive, heavy, but very fast for a stock car. I have the non-AMG model, and it blows my car out of the water.

It's called "target market". MB values luxury over performance. Typical AMG owner makes well over 200k/yr, over 50, and is interested in a high-class, comfortable auto. You would be shocked if you knew how much the sound deadening on the average MB weighs. It's nothing like a vette.
