With 542bhp, the Jaguar XFR-S finally has the firepower to go directly up against the German elite. Steve Sutcliffe pitches it against the mighty Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG in the ultimate supersaloon battle.

Can we have more Matt Prior videos instead?  He's much better: less juvenile and more articulate.

There a bit Flat Cap n leather elbow patches,the Jag in that color looks like a top spec Toyota,and the AMG shape looks a bit dated, have you seen what else is in that price sector...?

Peter Cavellini.

Love the video, as always. Especially the grazing sheep?(I am a city-bound American). Thanks.

Beloved comedian Dick van Dyke's new XJ caught fire on an LA freeway and burnt to the ground. That's it for Jaguar in the US.

That E63AMG is one cracking car.

I'd take the Merc, or better still an XFR and save some dosh. The R-S looks like a VXR8 rival with that large rear spoiler and paint job.

Great vid, bit confused though... Was the point of the video to find out which car is better or to find the best 4 door V8? If it was the latter then I am very surprised not to see an M5 in this video.

I'd have to agree with Steve's verdict here. Plus, you can still get an 'S' version of the E63. And an estate.
