Looking at the AMG, price dictates that. I sadly can't stretch to the top end of the price range.
V6, manual. This will not be a daily driver, nor long trips car. This is strictly for fun. I would generally opt for auto/dct because it is faster, but I figured that this will probably be my last manual car, and it is not so fast that you have to get the fastest one. Also, on track, it doesn’t make much difference in my experience. I want the surety of manual transmission and the feeling that you are wearing your car like a track suit and have control over all the variables.
Many, many years ago I was at a small motor show at Longleat in Wiltshire, England. There was a Jaguar XJ220 race car there… just a push button start so someone climbed in and, errrr, just drove off in it. A 90mph police chase ensued and the police eventually managed to stop the thief…. who was only going at 90 coz he couldn’t get out of first gear!If the gear ratios are the same as the Evora V6 manual, then 2nd gear will take you to 70mph and 3rd to 100mph - you don't need to do much gear changing if you don't want to
Both are boosted (turbo or supercharged) so pressure maintained - don't think they will lose any significant power.new here and love the information. i've been leaning toward the V6, but live at 7,800'. most of my driving will be between 5,800' and 10,200'.
for this reason, i THINK the AMG might be the better choice? i know both will lose power, but thinking the turbo will lose quite a bit less. please school me if i am completely off base! cheers!
