Beyond all the power, technology and feature advantages, the 2012 BMW 6 Series is less pricey and more flexible (larger) than the Mercedes-Benz SL and enjoys a better reputation for quality than the J
The smaller, 2-seat 2012 Mercedes-Benz SL feels sportier behind the wheel than the 2012 BMW 6 Series, and the 2012 Jaguar XK has a richer interior.
We aren't yet traveling by jetpack, but a decade into the 21st-century we do have cars that transform at the push of a button.
