SRT AWD 8 Speed -Chicago Show??

Ok I heard this is getting announced in Chicago next week!!!!!!!

Well, maybe if I generate enough rumor buzz it may actually happen some how heh..Sorry that sux I know, Im bored. I have checkbook in hand and am waiting for an 8 speed behind something with some balls. Sorry no jeeps either (but they're cool).

May have to defer to 5.7 RT Max with 8 speed and AWD Sport (assuming there will be one)...Love the blacked out grill on the AWD Sport. Ive been waiting for 18 months and am sick of it.

Im getting a new car this year and better damn well not be a Taurus SHO.. Where the hell is my HEMI 8 Speed AWD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sincerely,
Patience Nohmore

You're holding out for the 8-speed? You will seriously go with an SHO over an SRT8 because of the availability of transmission gears?

The more people that talk smack about the 5-speed end up being people who haven't driven it and just repeat what they've heard others say.

I guess the '13 Vanquish is off your list too then. Even Jay Leno admits it doesn't need more than 6.

Why should I be expected to drop 50+ large and settle for that ancient 5 speed tranny, when I know that a quality ZF-based 8 speed is right around the corner?

Im not going to be a victim of Dodge's laziness (or crappy Daimler 5 speed contract) forever. Get it done already.

The Vanquish transmission in infamously bad compared to the competition. The transmission in the One-77 was so bad that they tried to keep magazines from testing one. One finally was able to test one and quickly realized why Aston kept the press away from it. So, I probably wouldn't use Aston-Martin as a company too look up towards when it comes to transmissions. Lamborghini is similarly bad. If you want a good transmission; look at Ferrari, Porsche, McLaren, or the Nissan GT-R. Of course, I don't know what exotic transmissions have to do with the SRT8.

What would rock would be a twin-clutch, but I doubt that Dodge can source one at a reasonable cost that will handle the torque. I don't see customers willing to pay $8K extra for the transmission like on a Porsche PDK.
