Had no idea she designed the new NSX.

From the article:
She is the first women to be in charge of a supercar’s exterior design. She also loves cars and grew up in San Jose, California, one of the hot beds of American hot rod and muscle car culture. Her dad was also a tried and true Mopar guy. Meet Michelle Christensen, the new star of automotive design who was recruited by Acura right out of the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena back in 2005.

Manual trannies just aren't realistic in super cars any more. Humans can't shift fast enough for them.
You say that, but the Ariel Atom has a manual gearbox and is one of the fastest cars around the Top Gear track. I realize their track is a power circuit setup but I still think it'll run with the supercars on most track layouts. I realize some of this is due to weight but still, I don't think you'll have much more fun driving than with an Atom. I'm sure their version with the sequential gearbox is faster but I would love to see the minuscule difference in lap times.
