Even in the mid-90s when they were still using a 4-speed auto, more 850Rs were sold here with the auto than the manual. The manual had more power, more torque (on overboost) more gears and an LSD.. and it was probably cheaper. So.. not surprised this'uns an auto too. Seems like it's basically what the R version should be, really. Still.. if it works and is successful, maybe it'll pave the way for a more nutter version. Polestar R.
