    Car and Driver Jan 06 M5 comparison w/ CLS55.

    In the January 2006 Issue of car and driver there is a comparison Between the BMW M5, Cadillac STS-V, and the Mercedes-Benz CLS55 AMG.

    3rd Place CLS55
    2nd Place STS-V
    1st Place M5

    Both the CLS55 and M5 got 0-60 in 4.2 seconds
    BMW M5 did 0-100 in 9.4 seconds, and 1/4 mile in 12.5 [email protected] MPH
    CLS55 did 0-100 in 9.8 seconds, and 1/4 mile in 12.6 [email protected] MPH.

    M5 got 0.89g's in the skidpad and did something like 65.7 Mph in the emergancy lane change
    CLS55 got 0.93g's in the skidpad and did something like 63.5 Mph in the emergancy lane change
    M5 had the best Braking numbers

    STS-V was behind in all performance numbers.

    car and driver gave the M5 a 10 for handling and a 8 for ride
    and the CLS55 got a 7 for Handling and a 8 for ride

    M5 did very well in this comparison.

    So how did the Caddy end up second? Price?
    BTW, did C&D point out there's a two year wait for the M5 and the CLS has been available for 6 months? BMW production sucks.
