    A regular manual would suit this car the best in my opinion.
    I know, I'd rather have a proper manual in my M5 even though the SMG is so damn efficient.

    It would great to see the QP with a proper 6spd, but i doubt its the kinda car for that, maybe an extreme QP version with beefed engine and tired with a 6spd!

    I knew it would win some kind of award, it's the most luxerious italian sedan out today.

    Don't worry about the gearbox the problem that few people have had the past few years has been corrected in the new QP models.

    Somewhat related, I just read the Robb report and the Gransport got fifth place in the best car of the year which was won by the 430spider, they loved the looks, engine, interior and convenience, the editor even baught a Spyder 90th and the reviewer ditched his Carrera for a GS.

    I wonder if modifying a QP by Novitec (like 360) was ever attempted and what would be the cost?

    I drove one once, and I must agree is the best sedan out there.
    Is the 12 cylinder version still going to be released and when?
    Now I need to know about the trunk, is it big? compared to a Bentley continental flying spur'?

    Wich one would you get between both?

    They are gorgeous, a little understated, which I guess is nice in a sedan like that. I saw one around Laguna over the summer several times, that was black with black multispoke wheels, and huge chrome lips. Tinted windows as well. It looked absolutely incredible, I wonder if the owner is an f-chatter maybe?
