I did check my facts, and I'm sorry, but you are wrong. It is true that the new 458 Italia doesn't offer a traditional manual, but a 6MT is available on the 599 GTB and California. The links below show the technical specifications directly on Ferrari's website. Under the Transmission and Gearbox section for the 599, it clearly states, "Manual or F1; 6-gears+Reverse". For the California, the Gearbox section lists "F1, dual clutch 7 gears + Reverse" or "Manual 6 gears + Reverse".

The M5 you are referring to is the E60, but the previous M5's (E28, E34, E39) were all traditional manual transmissions.
