Audi offer a six speed manual transmission, or gearbox. The manual transmission by Lamborghini is not made by Lambourghinin, it is a six-speed manual gearbox with a slotted metal shift gate for the shift lever. Very little information is made available concerning the specifics of this manual transmission. Technical specifics are not necessary to buy a replacement transmission. Only the VIN [vehicle identification number] and perhaps a transmission code.

The automatic transmission offered in the R8 is quite a work of art. R Electrohydraulic manual transmission is the technical name. It is a type of semi-automatic transmission, which uses an auto-engage clutch, unlike conventional manual transmissions where the driver operates the clutch. The clutch is controlled by electronic computers and a precision hydraulic system.

To change gears, the operator selects the desired gear with the transmission shift selector, and the system automatically sends real time signals to the computer which then operates the clutch and throttle to match RPM’s [revolutions per minute-engine] with road speed and gear ratio, and engage the clutch again. Also, many similar transmissions offer a sequential mode where the driver can only up-shift or downshift one gear at a time.

In essence, the driver can do the thinking if the driving conditions or feelings of the driver demand it. Or the transmission will operate in a fully automatic mode if desired. Very accommodating to every driver and every driving condition. Designed to take a beating like a race car.
