    About 2 seconds of research would tell you the AT is faster in a straight line.

    A6 is quicker by 2-3 10ths.

    The M6 is faster on the top end.

    Still a drivers race, and could vary from car to car. The A6 is hard enough to launch, I can't imagine how difficult it is in the manual, but I'll bet its fun as HELL. I think for the power level we are talking here though, the V2 lauches very good on street tires. I've had 2 LS1 cars and two SRT8's and they were a PITA to launch.

    Re: what's faster 6Mt or 6At

    After having a few automatic V2s, I got bored so I ordered my 2014 V Coupe with the manual transmission. I want a more fun and interactive experience. I am sure the manual Vs "feel" faster over the automatics as you control the power delivery. I can't wait for my V Coupe to get here. It gets built in two weeks!

    AT is faster/quicker off the line, which I believe to be overwhelmingly related to gearing. That changes, however, at speed. All other things equal, I'll gladly take the manual--in a straight line--at, say, ~65 MPH and above.

    Is the gearing really that different? Are the published 0-60 and 1/4mi times different?

    Re: what's faster 6Mt or 6At

    All published GM numbers and the Ring time was set in an automatic. Magazine reviews have reviewed both versions of the car, and their numbers are all over the place. The lowest 0-60 1/4 miles times in magazines are generally on A6 cars, as are the stock track times by owners, by 2-3ths. I would imagine a manual on a drag radials would launch quite well in a manual with a good driver. I would have taken either transmission - they both have their +/-. They both rule.
