yea, i definantly did NOt read all that
neither did i homeboy
too much reading for this homeboy
yeah that car is sick....love it
absolute sex on wheels!
The wing and the vents/flares need to be toned down, but nice...
Automatic? But why?
its got paddle shifters behind the steering wheel i do believe
It's still an Automatic. Paddle shifters don't make it a manual or an automatic, torque converters vs. electrohydraulic clutches do.
i'm aware...i dont know much about how they work, but you dont put it in drive or anything do ya?
'the fuck should I know? You can read the same article I can...
nice classy fast ride!
My guess is it would be similar to the "trip-tronic" technology? Our car has it... no clutch, but you can manually shift the transmission.... Looks like that's how this one works
0..60 in 3.8 seconds... who cares
Bleh, shifting is the best part. I'll take a manual gearbox and a full second slower in the 0-60.
oh I'd prefer a manual too, but you can't complain when your 500+ hp benz only comes in auto
I hate MB but thats a pretty stout pkg. But it still kills me that they don't use a manual box or at least an electro hydraulically box like Pat was saying. I'm still a big fan of shifting for myself, but next up would be an SMG. The BMW paddle shift is pretty sweet, not great at low speeds but when you dial it in and put the car in sport mode it does a pretty good job.
