@Trentworth @kphillips9936 Both cars would be a lot slower with a conventional manual transmission.
I haven't driven an r35, but I've driven an SLS a few times and once you get used to a good twin clutch box there is no way an old school manual box can ever compare - they're just sooooooo slow.

I'm sure most car guys dreamed of sequential boxes after they became common in racecars - well a twin clutch box gives you that functionality but is also quiet, has a decent lifespan, and is totally streetable, plus faster to boot.
I love shifting gears myself, but in a properly fast modern car it seems crazy to hamstring it with old-slow outdated tech.

@Mike Garrett They could've got nissan to design the exterior too. - Though I guess you can't see how ugly it is from the inside!

Nice article, always an interesting experience to get to drive something you've dreamed about for years.

For me it was the Japanese rh9 gtr's and at the start of this year I got the chance to drive a friends r32 gtr of suitably silly spec, built rb26, t51r spl turbo, e85, 9500rpm...

 @rhysyeomans FIA  (and afaik most other governing bodies) rules stated then (and still do now) that should the race be stopped the results are taken from the order the cars crossed the line on the last full lap completed.

So the victory was awarded to the rightful winner.

 

It has to be that way, otherwise if it was the order the cars crossed the line after the race had been red flagged, then you would have cars still racing after it had been deemed too dangerous to continue.

Having had the chance to drive an S8 with the 520hp version of this engine today I cannot wait for this to come out!
