The Audi does not even have its new turbo V8, relying on its very long in the tooth 4.2 liter V8. Yet it still shows favorably vs. the 750. How the Audi, being the longest car and saddled with all wheel drive, manages to be 250 pounds lighter than the 7 series we have no clue. To also get outhandled by both competitors? Car and Driver said it was the worst drivers car out of all three. A BMW? What is going on? Check out this quote:
Trouble indeed. The Jaguar is no slouch, being the fastest of the 3 as well as the lightest. That is commendable and props to Jaguar for giving the best blend of performance, weight, and luxury. This used to be BMW's forte. The Jaguar seems to be more BMW than the BMW:
This brings us to the first place Audi. We do not agree with Car and Driver's result, not whatsoever. Considering the Jaguar's dominance through its performance numbers and having the lowest curb weight, it is the car we would choose. Especially when the results favor the Audi by 1 point, performance should be the deciding factor especially considering just how much faster the Jag is. Car and Driver put an emphasis on the interior and fit and finish of the Audi over the performance of the Jaguar. We bet one can deal with the Jaguar interior and finish just fine, especially when there is a supercharged 5.0 liter V8 to entertain you.
