James May. Three Lambo Aventadors
What’s better than one new Lamborghini? Three, obviously, with Captain Slow and 100 miles of empty roads...

Select first; pull away. This is not a trendy double-clutch gearbox, but a robotic manual that now seems as old as the hat worn by Henry Ford, mentioned above. It was done this way to save weight and space, but also to give the driver, says Lamborghini, "the emotion of the shifting". I've no idea what they're talking about.
Initial pull-away can be difficult to achieve smoothly, and sometimes, just as you lift off at a crawl, the clutch decides to engage fully, meaning the function of the accelerator seems to have been reversed. But once on the move, it works rather well.
