Both the V8 and V10 engines are now available with either the existing 6-speed manual with its beautifully slick shift action or the new 7-speed S-Tronic. S-Tronic is Audi's nomenclature for a dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
While the R-Tronic worked well when driving hard on the track, it was absolutely ridiculous on the street at anything less than 9/10. If the R8's S-Tronic is anything like the unit in the S5 http://www.autoblog.com/2010/04/12/2010-audi-s5-cabriolet-review/ it should be a dream in this machine.
