    That’s cool. I hope they kept the clutch pedal. I wonder how much power you could squeeze out of the Mondial’s 3.4 without blowing up the transmission?

    I hope they got rid of the annoying immobilizer.

    I’d drive it. But I like mine just the way it is.

    Interesting! Love the color. :) I'd still prefer the gated 5-speed, but I'm "old school". :p

    It's amazing as-is. No need for a manual trans with that kind of power. Both hands belong on the steering wheel at all times and the instant paddle shifts are perfect.

    I'm "old school".

    I don't discount your opinion. Either would be fun. Both would be twice as much fun.

    But if I had to choose which one to spend the money on ... I don't mind the slow (by comparison) lower horsepower engine, as I engage the less-than-perfect, one-handed shifts of a gated 5-speed manual. :cool: :D lol
