I've just been browsing AM site and done a bit of research on their gearboxes and as far as I can gleen, Aston Martin auto boxes are all still single clutch ie. no dual clutch systems. Seems Jaguar are not the only ones then.

Also been looking at performance stats for the XKR and erm pretty close to the Porsche Turbo. Think I'm going to enjoy Monday and certainly looking forward to how differently the car handles with an additional 100 bhp, bags of torque and a LSD.............mmm

Helen my 8 speeder in the ISF is a torque converter and its immense. Changes faster than a DCT and can drop from 8 to 2 instantly. DCTs cant.
