Mercedes-AMG vs. Alfa Romeo: Pic of the Week

Spoiler alert: we had fun doing this one. How could we not? The might of Mercedes-AMG versus the charisma of Alfa Romeo. A 510hp 4.0-litre V8 versus a 510hp 2.9-litre V6 – both unarguably among the best engines in the world today. The righteousness of rear-wheel drive versus real-world conquering all-wheel drive. And, of course, contemporary wagon against crowd-pleasing SUV.

The shoot-out could hardly be more of-the-moment, and nor could you ask for a better of example of the respective breed in either corner. We’ve already raved about the latest C63 S in its other available formats and the Quadrifoglio was declared king of the super-fast SUVs at Christmas.

Preview over. Happy Sunday, desktop collectors…
