I was wondering if the ZO7, SS, etc. will be offered in something other than regular manual transmission. I currently have an 07 SLK 55 AMG and am very happy with the 7 speed auto box and paddle shifters. I thik that the American muscle cars are behind the times with the manuals...while European and Jap cars will all be moving (if not already) to a dual sequentail gearshift or paddle shifters. I am not knocking those who love manual gearbox....but this transmission would be the reason why I avoid buying this vehicle.
