The 2010 BMW M6 has one of the best engines on the planet. If you're down with the styling, high-performance coupes don't get much better for $100,000.

Pros
Delectable 500-horsepower V10, excellent handling, relatively supple ride, high-quality cabin, great seats.

Cons
Outdated single-clutch SMG automated manual, uncharacteristically numb steering, polarizing styling

They didn't have a review for the 2012 m5, hold on 1 moment.

As far as performance goes, the 2012 BMW M5 has the highest numbers and the 2012 BMW M3 Coupe the lowest. The 2 Cadillac's are the same are in the middle and the 2010 BMW M6 is just below that. I would say the best performance has to be with the 2012 BMW M5.
