:hsugh: 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.

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

I'll conceded that the vette will eventually get a DCT trans tho, same w/ Caddy.
