Few super luxury sports cars have performance-tuned trims that can compete with the 2010 BMW M6’s overall package. Offering 18 more horsepower, but roughly the same performance figures, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG is probably its closest competitor. However, the CL63 AMG costs nearly $40K more. Read more…
