    Default 2020 GT500

    I didn't see an official discussion thread for this car!?!

    Lets just start with the NO MANUAL TRANS thing...
    I doubt Carroll would approve...

    seriously the new trans sounds like it will be awesome, but the manual guys are going to be upset.

    Ford’s Performance team that developed the GT supercar and Le Mans GTE class racecar were the same people that came up with this new GT500. For the type of track and street driving that they designed it to excel at, obviously the 7-speed DCT was the best overall choice based on their criteria. And someone from Ford also stated today that they might offer a manual transmission option later if consumer demand justifies it.

    I'm thinking Carroll Shelby would have approved of the DCT trans. The guy was all about being as fast as possible using whatever technology he could. If I remember correctly, the 69 GT500s were mostly automatic. This isn't a first.
