BMW M6 Gran Coupe -- The 4-door M6 stacks up well against the RS 7 in terms of power and equipment, but it's not as lithe and lively on winding roads.
Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG -- The AMG-tuned CLS offers beastly acceleration and a more livable back seat. But like the M6 Gran Coupe, it's less precise than the Audi.
Porsche Panamera Turbo -- While the Panamera Turbo is considerably more expensive, it's also got the athleticism of a sports car and the comfort of an executive sedan.
