Manual Gearbox

Hello to all LR fanīs from Portugal, Porto.
I'm interested in RRS TDV6, but with manual gearbox.
Can anyone tell me if LR it's going to produce as in Discovery.

Hugo,

All RRS have the 6 speed automatic gearbox which also has a manual option and is fantastic . As far as I am aware there are no plans for a straight manual gearbox like in the D3.

I Know it have manual shift, but isnīt equal, so, if they donīt make it with a manual, iīm going to think twice...
I donīt like auto, and for my kind of drive and roads i have auto it is not an advantage.

But thanks for your opinion or certain Sad

Barbosa, I used to work round Porto and Leixoes a lot in the 1980's and 1990's and I assume the roads have not improved vastly in the last 20 years! I appreciate where you are coming from, however the 6 speed auto is very good and gear changes occur seamlessly and very promptly when you ask. The gearbox is also "adaptive" and learns from your driving style and adjusts the shift pattern to suit. I would highly recommend that you borrow a demo car from the dealer for a weekend and go and play round the North of Portugal on those twisty bumpy country roads - you will be very surprised how good the suspension and gearbox really are. I must admit that the only time I use the sequential/ commandshift function these days is when I am driving offroad. The gearbox is good enough that I very rarely find that I even use the "sport" mode by shifting the lever to the left and leaving it there as well. The power and torque of the TDv6 and the autobox are very well matched.
Also remember that L322 RR is not available as a manual shifter, so the marketing men at Soilihull may consider the Sport to be a luxury car with a sporty biase and won't be selling a manual.

Thanks, Tim
Iīm trying to have a test with a auto, to see if i like.
My question about a manual, is because RR always have manual gearbox, and only in the BIG RR (made by BMW) they donīt put it.
At my point of view, this baby is trying to recall the golden days of RR, and think itīs in the way, it's missing only manual!!

If this RR is made on bases of D3(same auto gearbox??), i think it's not dificult to put "D3" manual gearbox on this RR.

IF THEY PUT MANUAL, I DON'T THINK TWICE= IT?S MINE...

Kind Regards,

TEST DRIVE TDV6 HSE - Don't like autos for sure....

Ok, I went to a test drive and it's not for me.
I Dont like autos's.... Sad
RRS is an amazing car, drives very well, but acelerates to much to recover speed..
Good luck to you all, and who Knows, maybe LR put an manual.... Razz

Bye
