Fastest cars from BMW and Mercedes-Benz – and how much they cost

BMW and Mercedes-Benz are two German manufacturers who compete with one another in the luxury vehicle market.

The showdown has taken place over decades – whether it was the Mercedes-Benz S-Class versus the BMW 7 Series in the 70s, or the A-Class taking on the 1-Series in 2021.

These brands strive to better one another at every level, and they are using everything at their disposal to manage that.

This includes squeezing powerful engines into tighter bodies with less weight and made of more durable materials.
