UPDATED WITH TUBI AND HRE'sThe latest version of Ferrari's F355 sports car is one of the most accomplished open-topped designs of the last twenty years. With its two-seat cockpit, a mid-mounted V8 engine and a body that is still one of the best looking designed for a passenger car, the 355 F1 has all the style, speed and exclusiveness that has made the Ferrari name a legend of the motoring world. What makes this F355 F1 different is a radical transmission: a manual gearbox, but without a clutch pedal! Sophisticated electronics look after the function normally carried out by the driver's left foot. Instead of a clutch pedal and gear shift, the F355 has two steering-wheel-mounted levers. The right one is to select a higher gear, the left one for a lower gear. Where the gear stick would normally be is a little lever for selecting reverse. To start the engine, the ignition key needs to be advanced a notch and both gearshift "paddles" pulled back to ensure the transmission is in neutral. Keep turning the key and the 3.5-litre, 40-valve V8 fires into life, burbling away behind the front seats with a subdued rumble that is a portent of what's to come. The engine produces plenty of power, with a maximum of 380 bhp at a very high 8250rpm. At low revs, it is surprisingly docile and civilized. To start off, the driver selects first gear. As the throttle pedal is depressed, the clutch takes up automatically. Apart from being fun, the semi-automatic gearbox is intended to be fast and foolproof. Gear changes are far quicker than with manual gear changing, and there's no chance of muffing a change or missing a gear.
