Some UK spec Questions
« on: December 21, 2017, 11:05:37 pm »
Hi there,
Finding the brochure a little light on detail so a few questions about the UK spec spider:
1. Auto gearbox: old fashioned fluid flywheel or new dual clutch style?
2. Stop and Start technology on the engine?
3. Speed limiter as well as cruise control?
4. Reversing camera or just sensors?
5. Any interior space behind the seats and under where the roof stows?
6. Cornering lights on the visibility pack

Many thanks for shedding any light!

    Do not know for certain but I'm 99% sure the gearbox is fluid type.

    Not seen any official confirmation either way.

    FYI I found the auto box is 'somewhat' sluggish. defo try before you buy!!
    (I had a 97' jaguar XK8 before so well used to auto boxes).
    also reversing sensors only with visibility pack
    if you pull the passenger seat forward you can create a bit of space for a bag, but not loads.

    Thanks for the info. I have and edc auto box at the moment and previously the old type, and experience of these through USA car hire. I’m pretty sure it won’t be so terrible that it puts me off completely ... I’m sure the paddles, sports mode and the quick steering and sporty suspension will help
