Chris Harris of DRIVE goes behind the wheel of the BMW M6 Coupe and compare it against the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG. Interesting tidbit? Combined, the two cars have over 1100 horsepower.

The M6 Coupe is powered by a high-revving 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology, consisting of Twin Scroll Twin Turbo technology, cross-bank exhaust manifold, High Precision Direct Petrol Injection and VALVETRONIC fully variable valve control. The cars deliver 560 hp at 6,000 – 7,000 rpm and maximum torque of 680 Newton meters (502 lb-ft) from 1,500 rpm.

Based on the SL-Class that debuted at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, the SL63 AMG packs a twin-turbo 5.5 liter V8 producing 529 horsepower (557 with AMG Performance Package) and 664 lb-ft of torque. The new SL63 AMG can rocket from 0-62 mph in 4.3 seconds (4.2 with the optional AMG Performance Package) while returning 30 percent better fuel economy. Top speed rises to 186 mph.
