Is it safe to use a manual transmission with a V12 engine because of the high torque? At least current manual transmissions do not handle the torque of the biggest engines.
Often if both options are available, the engine torque for the manual transmission car is limited to a lower value. Like the current E280CDI V6, 400 Nm torque for the manual and 440 Nm for the automatic gearbox.
