Having had an S197 GT500, the primary reason I wanted the S550 version was for the DCT. Better performance, and the trans does its part in keeping the engine from overpowering the chassis.I love manuals, but I can't see a GT500 with one. It appears the DH will be a cast regular, not limited to two or three years. While not a 500, it's got a great manual trans. Stripped-down, "racer" Boss variant with manual? With as few electronics (including manual window cranks and no rear seat) as possible? Something for a purist? Several years to go. Anything is possible.
