    It looks like a pretty nice vehicle. It was inspired by the Aventador, which is always awesome.

    The name is pronounced like, "or-uh-con." :thumbsup: Base price is around $240k. That awesome "Aventador inspired" ceramic brake kit is standard.

    I love that interior... It's sick. The exterior isn't that exciting for a Lamborghini, but they pulled it off. It looks good.

    I don't think I could buy a paddle shifter supercar minus the GT-R.

    That's the only way to go. Faster, more efficient shifting. I do like having a stick-shift, though.

    I agree with Tsuande on this one, minus the Nissan. I would much prefer a manual transmission for driving enjoyment.

    I'd much prefer an Aston Martin over a Lambo. I've never liked them since I was a kid to be honest.

    Well I think some Japanese tuning company actually put a 6 speed manual in a GT-R. I don't think alot of modern paddle shifter cars can do their F1 styled launch control with a manual transmission, hence the race to the top for the fastest 0-60/quarter mile is now all done with paddle shifters. From the performance end, I respect SMG\DCT\paddle shifters but from enjoyment, paddleshifters is the complete opposite end, ho hum. I think Porsche for the longest time only made their enthusiast/pure drivers cars manual only (GT2/GT3/GT3RS/Carrera GT).

    I love the standard manual transmission and shifter, but paddle-shifters are fun. I think in an exotic super car, you would not expect to see anything else. They're stylish, responsive, accurate and efficient. Best of all, they're dummy proof. I can't imagine grinding gears on a $250k sports car...the transmission would probably be upwards of $40k-$50k to replace.

    Ha... If only I could win the lottery. I'd have a five car garage with two levels (10 cars total). :thumbsup:

    Thirded (fourthed?) on the preference for three pedals and a stick. Never owned anything else, but I've test-driven a GTI with DSG and didn't like it. It was faster than I could drive but less entertaining. And when you're driving for fun instead of racing competitively, which matters more?

    Love the interior, hate the exterior. Like someone else said, I'm a sucker for Aston exteriors (and Porsche). Lambos always looked too much like matchbox cars to me.

    [If] I ever have to drive a paddleshifter/sequential manual/DCT, it should be near Ferrari race spec (.1-.2 ms shift times). The ones in my XV are so slow (at least .5-.75 sec delay in shifting), there is almost no point in using the paddle shifters besides to rev the engine up to high revs. At that point a manual is almost faster if you powershift it. The GT-R ones are pretty fast, and it is a pretty excellent transmission considering Nissan engineers hand build it themselves.
