A new transmission offered on lots of higher end sports cars like the Aston Martin Vanquish, all the new Ferraris, Maseratis, And some of the new Audis might get it. Literally means "race change" in Italian. Basically it's like an F-1 transmission where you upshift and downshift with paddles located behind the steering wheel but without the use of a clutch, allowing for faster acceleration with the control of a manual transmission. It's one of the coolest new innovations in the world of cars.
I fucking tore up the streets in that Maserati cambiocorsa bitch.
