can't remember specs - saw it last year, i think, but i'd be more interested in the laser from Real Science
i feel like adding a gun would give the pilots too much control in the airplane

Would have to have the ability to automate the shifting as well of course.
swap the stick with 2 buttons, and voila! a DCT

Its just a different way to engage the clutch. A sensor on the pedal activates an electronic system, rather than pushing the pedal activating a hydraulic system. The actual selection of the gears looks like it would still be done manually. It could, like R&D speculated, be possible to fully automate the clutch system or maybe put a button on the shifter rather than using a clutch pedal. That would make it a little more convenient to drive a manual, but it would be far from an automated manual.



An automated manual that still has a stick & shift-gate would probably just be a dual-clutch automatic with a dummy gate that reads the position of the gear selector but has no mechanical connection to the transmission.

The air intakes seem a little extreme to me, but other than that I dig it

I agree and I hope the real car is much different than the rendering for the Rear

Just a funny observation...


Maybe they had different people work on the different angles of the car because the panel cut lines are completely different in all of them.
