According to Auto Express, Aston Martin will unveil a sequential tranmission for the V8 Vantage at the Paris Motor Show. Featuring wheel-paddles for easy access and comfort the new gear-box will also offer a fully automatic mode.

"It will take the wraps off an automated manual box at the expo, and the set-up is expected to boast steering wheel paddles, as seen on the larger Vanquish. "
