I fiqured I'd post it here for you guys to feist your eyes on my wicked Dodge 4x4, it was supposed to look like my baby that I rolled that put me in the chair. (although a tad bit of exageration ) It took me months to make it!

                  Did you read the transmission part?

                  Transmission• 6-speed Dual Clutch Transmission with three driver-selectable modes: Normal (for maximum smoothness and efficiency), Snow (for gentler starting and shifting on slippery surfaces), and R mode (for maximum performance with fastest shifts).
                  • Fully automatic shifting or full sequential manual control via gearshift or steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
                  • Dual clutch design changes gears in less than 0.5 second (0.2 second in R mode).
                  • Downshift Rev Matching (DRM).
                  • Predictive pre-shift control (in R mode) based on throttle position, vehicle speed, braking and other information.

                  It's not being offered in anything BUT an auto. Which is why many many people that would buy it, are not going to. Plus two tenths for shift speed is painfully slow and the half a sec is laughable. 200 mil would be impressive.

                    Yeah actually I can afford it as long as they don't jack up the price over MSRP. And I ment if I can find one with an Auto. I went to the dealership on saturday to have my Z maintained and I spoke to the manager and he said that each dealership is only going to get one. I was like damn that sucks. So finding one may be difficult. I have a Z GTR right now that was ordered out of Japan. It took me a couple of months to get it.

                      I hope you don't end up having to find one out of state or something. Can you make a reservation?

                          They have it around 70-80K right now. There isn't a real MSRP on the nissan website yet.

                              the body style as much on the z gtr. Looks too much like the fair lady z. I like the retro look of the new GTR because I absolutely love the Skyline GTR from 2002-2004. I think the new manual automatic transmission should be a nice addition that even the most jaded manual transmission freak will be able to appreciate.

                                No. It's being offered with a fully manual transmission that is actuated either by a standard gearshift lever or via paddle-shifters on the steering wheel. It has an automatic mode, but this car has a dual clutch transmission, not a torque converter. The paddle-shift could be integrated into hand controls for a driver who cannot use their legs.

                                two tenths for shift speed is painfully slow and the half a sec is laughable. 200 mil would be impressive.
                                Heh. First of all, your conversion is off. .2 seconds is not "two tenths". It's 200 milliseconds, which, as you say, is pretty impressive. However, I am curious as to why you think that changing gears in about half a second is "laughable". Do you think the average driver completes a shift in less time? (Of course, all of this talk of speed and times for shifts ignores the question of exactly what we're measuring. Different companies give times for different operations.)

                                C.
