Clearly there have only been a miniscule handful of US, non automotive journo's/professionals who have driven the car. If we had pricing to discuss there would likely be less discussion of these kinds of details. That being said gearing, the M-DCT box, torque multiplication and it's effects on power and torque to the ground have been extensively discussed here on the forum.

As you might know from many of my post, I am a big advocate of science applied to cars. Science and engineering are just as important to a deep understanding of a vehicle as seat time. Note I said understanding not achieving the best lap time.
