Enthusiasts are simply a very small segment of the market. Most people buy Mercs and BMWs for the badge.

You can in North America!
But yeah, no more manual for current gen M5 anywhere else in the world.
But hey, 1M came manual only.
Hopefully BMW will keep making them.
With 0 manuals from Merc, and Audi phasing out manual for R8, S4, S5; I hope to god BMW keeps the manuals coming.

Unfortunately paddle shifters are the way of the future. Ferrari already said they won't be bringing back manual transmissions, I doubt AMG Merc's will either.

i think mercedes should be more concerned about building a C Class AMG that actually has traction at 100% throttle before 5th gear

Mercedes hasn't offered a manual V8 since the 70's?

AMG did offer manual 5 speeds back in the late 80's but nobody really went for it. The AMG modifications depending on the motor you picked (5.2, 5.4, 6.0) would usually in the end would cost about a VERY conservative est. $60,000, just for a bodykit, bigger motor and wheels. Getting a manual box wouldn't surprise me if it was another 40 grand?

In 1986 you could get a 300E for $37,000, the 300E 6.0 AMG was $185,000....

I guess you could always call AMG and ask them

manuals will be a rare sight in the next few model changes....dual clutch is going to repalce manuals and autos.....If you have a 09-12 manual shifting car, the value will eventually go up because car enthusiasts will miss the entertainment of driving a stick....

my friend (yes, real friend, not make believe), purchased a 08 F430 6 sp manual. Imo, he had to pay a +$30K premium over F1.......

Modern automatics may shift faster than a driver, but I still enjoy being in control. I will never buy an automatic for this reason alone.

Only north america. Here in Germany nearly every car other than a newer BMW/Audi/Merc is manual.

AMG wasn't owned by mercedes in the 80s....it was still an aftermarket supplier, just like Brabus is today.
