2015 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.
2015 Porsche Panamera Turbo -- While the Panamera Turbo is considerably more expensive, it also has the athleticism of a sports car and the comfort of an executive sedan.
2014 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.
Used Aston Martin Rapide -- Where do you go if the RS 7's segment doesn't seem exclusive enough? Straight to your Aston Martin dealer. A low-mileage example of the 4-door Rapide is certainly worth considering.
