BMW M3: Depending on when you read this review, your BMW dealer might have some leftover V8-powered M3s from last generation, but those will soon be replaced by the new M3 with its turbocharged six. Either way, you owe yourself a test drive before going with the RS5.
Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG: Now available as a coupe, the C63 lacks the RS5's heroically controlled handling, but it'll do powerslides all day if that's your thing. Plus, the 6.2-liter AMG V8 makes some beautiful noises of its own.
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 - We know it's a dark-horse candidate, but the ZL1's unique suspension gives it world-class handling, and there's something to be said for its 556 supercharged horses and look-at-me styling.
