So many posts on the new Emira. So I will admit that I'm to lazy to wade through it all. Can anyone explain how there is 19 grand difference between the two. I put a deposit down on a V6, but now thinking the AMG might make more sense. My apologies if this has been covered a dozen times.
My guess is that they assume early adopters will pay extra for the first edition (available) which is only the V6 version. Additionally, early adopters will likely opt for a manual transmission, which again is exclusive to the V6.

This combined with the need to perfect their assembly lines and the new manufacturing processes, made them decide to first go with the V6 variant. In my opinion it was a marketing/financial decision, based on knowing their target audience.

To completely normalize the cost difference, we’ll need to compare the base AMG to the base V6.
