Day One is on-road tests. Our group test drives these 4 big coupes. Camaro ZL-1, Audi RS5, BMW M6, and Mercedes AMG SL65 for back-to-back comparisons.
Camaro ZL-1 is best bang for buck in this group.
Diedra from Mercedes rides shotgun in the SL 65.
The Audi RS5. Lightest, most nimble, but with some front wheel drive torque steer.
