Audi's latest mega-estate may have two extra cylinders over its Alpina and AMG rivals, but it needs more than horsepower to cut it in company like this
Alpina B3 S (1st)
Wonderful composure over lousy British roads and effortles pace.
Mercedes C32 AMG (2nd)
Pricey Merc is like a dragster in muftic: stupidly fast but subtle.
Audi S4 (3rd unanimously)
Sounds and looks the business, but fails to deliver on the road.
Alpina B3 s (E46 (02-))
Mercedes C class C32 AMG (203 (00 - ))
Audi A4 S4 (2 (03 - ))
