It will have the dual clutch automatic, but not when released. Basically, it's about getting it to work as well in the car as the manual transmission. It will be available later though.
I read it in a magazine. They met with the ST team, went for a drive, and got plenty of details. Including a September release date of the manual version. They're not sure how much longer the auto will take though.
