Another AMG in the headlines this week is the GLC63. There’s both the standard GLC63 and more dynamically styled GLC63 Coupe, and regardless of which you get there’s a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 under the hood. It’s a breath of fresh air in an age of engine downsizing and emissions regs.

Audi’s newest A5 is impressive in standard guise, but it really comes alive in S5 form. Under the hood is a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that dishes up 354 horsepower, though sadly it can only be had with an automatic transmission. In case you find living with a coupe too hard to bear, the same mechanical package is available in an S4 sedan.
