Will It Drift? BMW M5 vs Mercedes-AMG E63 S

The new BMW M5 has landed in South Africa and we pitted it against its rival from Mercedes-AMG, the E63 S. Now that both of these monsters feature all-wheel drive, we had to ask ourselves – will it drift?

These 2 models from these 2 brands have been star players in the German horsepower war for decades. It's a war that has gotten so out of hand that both of these carmakers have decided to fit their super-saloons with all-wheel drive. But luckily for us, BMW and Mercedes-AMG have a sense of humour. They've fitted the new M5 and the E63 S with switchable rear wheel drive...something we thought we should test. In this video, we introduce our Cars.co.za Consumer Awards judge, Ernest Page.
