Good bye SMG

Hey everybody,

first of all I love everything about this car. Even the hood and I am even starting to like the mirrors. Only the rear is a little too packed for me. But I just read at that there will be no SMG at the beginning of production, only 6-speed manual. Later, the will be a DSG gearbox, but they did not say how many gears. They also said the entire bottom of the car is covered, so that it is very stable at high speeds, and it will go over 186 mph (300 km/h) without the electronic break. Maybe somebody could take a picture and show us what it looks like under the car?
Also, they are suggesting 420 bhp in the European Version, 4.0 ltr V8: nothing essentially new, but their information are usually acurate.

Enjoy the Concept, it's beautiful and take more pictures!
