Come on guys look at the sports cars today on the market. They are all going that route. It is simply more efficient, faster than a regular manual transmission. I drive the 360 modena with the F1 transmission and it is fun to drive too beleive me.
Every modern sport car and racing car have those paddles shifter today.
-Every formula cars
-VW Golf GTI
-More and more
And all those cars beat the Lotus on track in any magazine contest that I've seen so far.
So I dont see why it is a surprise for you that Lotus plan to equip their 2014-2015 models with that technology.
What's wrong with that ? Change and evolution is part of the automotive industry.
Plus a 7 speed transmissions means that we will have to shift gear even more often = even more driving pleasure !
