Audi R8: Next generation comes without manual transmission!

Audi R8

You must be strong now: the next-generation Audi R8 is said to no longer feature a manual transmission.

And the latest performance icon to join those ranks could very well be the next-generation Audi R8, if the latest reports are to be believed. Although the current R8 is encumbered by a lackluster automatic transmission option, later in 2012 Audi is expected to offer a seven-speed DSG that will, according to the ruminations, be the only gearbox offered once its complete replacement rolls along in 2014.
