Semi-Automatic Transmissions

By now, we've come to terms with the fact that the automatic transmission has conquered the automotive world. New Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Maseratis can't even be had with manual transmissions anymore. All of this is because of the semi-automatic transmission.

And when a good dual clutch shifts, it will make your left foot and right arm feel very, very slow.
