Yes is the last V12 manual .... but is not like a older manual like 550 because Vantage S have the throttle bodies motorized for the AMSHIFT function, that help the driver duting downshift and also for do the full-throttle upshifts ...

My thinking: they offer a manual but they insert special functions for copy the robotized transmission ....

As per follow article ..

Fabio- I think that, like the Corvette, you can turn off the AMShift function so it is just a 7 speed manual.
