Video: Fifth Gear pits Audi RS6 vs. Mercedes E63 AMG

. Friday, July 16, 2010

The current generation Audi RS6's days may be numbered but that hasn't stopped the folks at Fifth Gear from pitting the 571-hp V10 Audi against one of its closest rivals, the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. Though host Jason Plato calls the car "dull" and comments on various annoyances such as heavy steering, bouncy ride and an uncomfortable seating position (listing the gripes after boasting the car's "silky, relentless supply of power"), the RS6 proved to school the AMG Benz around the wet test track with ease.

The video below is a little higher quality but you'll need to skip to 03:35 for the RS6 clip.
