I beleive the primary difference is the V2 is 300wpc compared to 200wpc for the V1.

That what I think too but looking at the review here:
It said "Ampzilla (V1) 2000 uses 12 250-watt output
devices per monoblock".
I tried to search for manual on-line or emailing Spread Spectrum but no reply yet.
Maybe some of the owners here compared them before?
James replied to me saying the driver stage is a new design same as the Son of Ampzilla 2000.
Anyway, I got the Ampzilla 2000 V1 and they are absolutely powerful and sounds close to my favourite ASL Hurricane 200W tube amp and bass is very well controlled or better. They never get hot when I tried it with the Tannoy bookshelf and MBL 111b. Totally transforming my $500 Tannoy Sensys bookshelf to another level. The bookshelf's bass was just disappointing under the Linn 80W amp but now kicking with tight and deep bass notes under Ampzilla.
Usually you don't mate a $7000 amp to a $500 speaker but it seems I might be wrong.
I also tried to use it to drive the Karma Midi Ex which is a USD40000 speaker with great results too. Playing JVC's HIFI Flamenco disc at high level and the stepping sound is waking up everyone in the demo room.
So much fun.
