These cars come in auto because you will not be able to shift fast enough to take advantage of the power and not to mention that automatics can usually handle more hp. Also, mercedess has an amazing drivetrain. I remember Jesus from Miami had an E55 AMG, and I saw a video of him race. The car runs 12's stock. They don't suffer from wheelspin.
