Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro: Review of R-tronic transmission

Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro
Nice review here of the Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro with R-tronic.

The actual user interface for R Tronic is interesting. Slide the lever to the left to select M for manual mode or A for automatic mode. Push the lever forward to upshift. Pull the lever backward to downshift. Reverse is down and to the right. It’s all intuitive and works well, and the gearshift lever itself feels great in your hand. Since there is no P-for-park setting, I’ll just make sure to use the parking brake. The Audi setup is certainly much better than the R-for-reverse buttons on a lot of modern Ferraris. I can never get accustomed to those.
