Lamborghini: No more manuals for us!

Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4

Lamborghini has announced to stop building cars with manual transmission. This isn’t so shocking, only 2% went for it.

The news comes from an interview at Motor Trend with Maurizio Reggiani, head of R&D for Lamborghini, who characterizes the manual transmission as a disconnect in the otherwise electronic chain of command that “harmonizes absolutely everything that happens between the engine combustion chamber and the tire contact patch.” Introducing the human error element means the system will never function as well as it could.
