Today we have the upper-class luxury sedans fighting for the title of number one. As the fight is so much upper-scale one it couldn’t be any other way but to see two Germans fighting in this great clash of titans. We have today 2013 BMW 7-series fighting with the not less great and aggressive 2013 model of Audi A8. Both car are great in their exterior and are equipped with the best German engines one can ever find, so let’s see who gets the win!

Price of those two models starts from $70K. If you want to know more precise numbers, then in you want to get one of those good-looking BMW 7-series you will have to pay $73,300, and Audi got the costs cut by $1,100, so it will cost you $72,200. Now if we look at the inner side we can see that BMW got 3.0L 315hp I6 engine at its core, while Audi appears to be a little stronger in this sense as it got the 3.0L 333hp V6. The difference is not that big, though one may truly say that the additional 18-horsepower on this level can really make the difference. On the fuel economy side Audi also got the lead, as it can go for 3 miles per gallon further on the highway having the level of 28 mpg, and in the city both cars go as far as 17 mpg.
