Well look at the Z8. The Z8 was on back order for years until they discontinued it and brought in the Alpina version. The Alpina was the automatic and didnt sell nearly as well as the original manual tranny of the z8. And believe it or not the M6 is more of a performance car than the z8 was. So the buyers will also be looking for the manual tranny on the M6. Also the M6 is a high reving V10. With an automatic even on steptronic mode, the driver wont be able to reach the High Rpms that the car was meant to excell in.
