This is no games-console supercar. You drive it. The 'box is manual, a six-speeder with a shift that's light, but asks for care if you're to be really quick with it. Yes, it has traction control, but no ESP to collect you if you lift-off too suddenly, and no ABS if you drop anchor thoughtlessly. In mitigation, the throttle is long and the brake pedal firm: you have to ask deliberately if you want all it's got.
