    GTs???

    Were any R8 GTs produced with 6 speed manual shift or are 100% of the GTs with R-Tronic?

    All of them came with an r tronic. There is a board member here who converted one into a manual.

    ... and since he started with a non-GT serial numbered car, all he really has is a regular R8 with a bunch (all almost) of GT parts on it. More than his car has had some of the same. He did start with 2 cars, one a real GT - If he had kept the GT VIN, and fitted all the rest back to it, it might be more unique/valuable...

    He did do a fantastic job in the end though and no one would deny THAT accomplishment regardless -

    I’d love to see a thread on his build if it’s out there. That’s a shame he made the GT the donor car. Totally should have used it as the build. The chassis must have been unsalvageable.

    I was part of the 6speed GT build and we actually used 2 separate GT’s as the donor cars. I was told that there were a total of 180 GT’s brought to NA. So that would mean there are only 178 left lol. Because I now understand what is involved in making a GT manual, I’m certain this will be the only one. Truly a masterpiece which btw was just posted on Craigslist in Los Angeles for eighty six grand. If someone has the funds this is a super rare opportunity.

    I did see that car earlier today (Red 2012, right?)

    You must have considered moving parts from the non-GT one to the GT. Why did you guys decide to build up the non-GT one. (I am assuming since the chassis is not from the GT, officially this car is not a GT car...)
