    New 7 sp manual Aston Vantage V12 now offered

    Just saw this brief review on what used to be X-Cars... Carfection (awful name...).   Aston still holding on to the manual, this time with a 7 speed dog-leg shift pattern (ie. first down and left).  Maybe they got tired of all the bad reviews of their Speedshift transmissions....?  But whatever the reason for their offering it (success of the 911R?), it is still nice to see another manual being offered - will also be nice to see people put their money where their mouths are on the subject of manuals.  The combo of the Aston V12 with any manual sounds fairly epic - should be a very nice "fast GT" style car.

    Re: New 7 sp manual Aston Vantage V12 now offered

    I love that that they made this.  IMO, this is the gearbox concept (7 spd dogleg, which improves gate spacing) that Porsche should have used for the 911R and GT3.  This motor really works best with 7 close ratios, but the 7spd manual in the 991 is not really a proper performance gearbox.
