sounds like the auto..

And dunno why GM would go dual clutch when they claim their new auto shifts faster than a 911 PDK.

False advertising. That sounds nothing like an F1 gearbox. Definitely the 8-speed auto.

Lol... Im pretty confident that they are not saying it sounds like a F1. Instead they are doing testing on the paddle shift which is commonly referred to as a F1 style gear box.... I assume you are supposed to be listening to the quick shifts

Sounds like the 8-speed. Shifts sound pretty crisp though. My guess is the Zora will have a DCT though.

Sounds like a regular auto to me.

I want to hear the downshifts. Traditional auto's upshift great when programmed properly.

But they have always sucked at rev-matched downshifts.

What happens if the guy has to drop 2 or 3 gears heading into a tight corner off a big straight.

Amazing car, especially in that blue. Didn't sound any kind of special though. Just an auto.

The guy that shot the video is the one saying it was an F1 trans. Other sources are doubting that.

First, its DCT, not F1. Second, I'll bet 5 dollars its just the auto trans.
