Hello

As you probably know there was never a manual gearbox offered with the V12 from jaguar

there was a very rare manual option with the TWR built XJR S but this will be very hard to find so I'd suggest contacting this firm :

they use the excellent TKO transmissions and have engineered a bellhousing and clutch installation for the V12
