The 2009 Nissan 370z is the first production car to offer a computerized rev-matching manual transmission.  This is the perfect car for all those drivers who don’t want to spend years refining their heel and toe technique to get the perfect downshift.  Simply press a button and the computer will take into account the speed of the tires and the speed of the engine in the gear being selected and automatically blip the throttle to match revs for a smooth shift.  The technology has its fair share of oponents that don’t want anything but their right foot controlling the throttle, or maybe it’s the idea of young inexperienced drivers passing them up on the track?  Either way, follow the link to see the system in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XC9ZzGNlLms
