22 Mercedes E63 AMG S beats Panamera Turbo, becomes the fastest 4-door car at Llandow

Cover for Mercedes E63 AMG S beats Panamera Turbo, becomes the fastest 4-door car at Llandow

Auto Express and Steve Sutcliffe are producing Llandow lap time videos again - this time with two German super-sedans.

Porsche Panamera Turbo is widely regarded as the fastest of all fast 4-door cars and currently holds Nürburgring 4-door car lap record. Mercedes E63 AMG S is a bit of an "unknown quantity" and hasn't been tested on track much, if at all.

Watch the video or head over to the Llandow page for full list of lap times.

well saxy 'currently ranked as a cadet' has gone cuckoo and his disease cannot be reversed, no anti-psychotic drugs had any effect on him or going under any kind of chemotherapy treatment has shown any positive results or any signs of improvement

his condition gets a lot worse whenever someone brings up some hard facts about his beloved ss-oberführer ferdinand piech cars with fake low co2 emissions

Saxy is viewed just behind Tim Horton and Don Cherry in his country.In fact his great great Uncle was Big Joe Mufferaw who travelled down the river Ottawa all the way to Mattawa in just one day. He knows all kidding aside that Porsche is a great car company.

Giulia is compact. E-Class and Panamera are both borderline full-size, a little more than midsize, as is CTS.

Giulia is a midsize, Not a compact, Same with an E Class.

Giulia is a compact executive saloon.
The E class which is a full foot longer is midsized.

Of course the term "executive saloon" implies larger

The Giulia is a midsize car in European standards.
These are the European strandards:
Compact cars e.g.: VW Golf, Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Ford Focus, Subaru Impreza, Mazda 3, Opel Astra, Audi A3, BMW 1/2, Mercedes A/CLA, Renault Megane, Peugeot 308, Kia Cee'd
Midsize cars e.g.: Audi A4/A5, BMW 3/4, Mercedes C, VW Passat, Ford Mondeo, Jaguar XE, Volvo S60, Alfa Giulietta, Subaru Legacy, Mazda 6, Lexus IS, Cadillac ATS
Full-size cars: e.g.: Audi A6, BMW 5, Mercedes E, Lexus GS, Skoda Superb, Jaguar XF, Volvo S90, Cadillac CTS
Luxury cars e.g.: Audi A8, BMW 7, Mercedes S, Lexus LS, Jaguar XJ, Cadillac XTS, Cadillac CT6

Exactly with one exception - Skoda Superb is sometimes considered as midsize car and sometimes as full-size car.


User avatar

saxy  4m ago @Inline 6 rules

Yet according to wiki, no.
The term executive car is already of a different measure.


User avatar

hostboy  4m ago @Inline 6 rules

I guess in Europe a Dodge Chager or Lancia Thema/Chrysler 300 would be considered a "luxury car." Right


User avatar

hostboy  4m ago @Inline 6 rules

The CLA is barely smaller than the ATS.

But it's based on the A Class, it's basically a sedan version of the A Class. C Class is the midsize category Mercedes.

its classified as a ''compact executive'' car, whereas the E63 is just a standard executive car. the C63 is a ''compact executive'' also. still the alfa is 6 seconds faster around green hell than the panamera turbo s.
