When it comes to looking at two similar cars you cannot beat a good showdown, and this is just what this Jaguar XFR-S vs. Mercedes E63 AMG visual review is. While it may seem like a dream job comparing the two vehicles, it is a tough task trying to choose which of the two is best.

In one corner we have the limited edition Jaguar XFR-S and on the other we have the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. While it is nice to see how well these two vehicles perform on a racetrack, which you get to see in the video above, you will also need to see the handling on some British B-roads.

Both vehicles were UK spec with both pushing out the same 542 horsepower, which is uncanny when you think about it. However, that is where the similarity ends, this is because the Mercedes seems to have the Jaguar beat.

The Mercedes is lighter and so has a faster 0-60 mph time and better overall performance. However, that is all well and good reading those specs, but it is often a different matter when you get behind the wheel of a car.
