Ed- Easiest to document case of that is the California Road and Track used in their "Tested in Europe" road test. Ferrari actually gave them the ratios in the 7 speed box. The gearing was way lower than what actually was used for production. With a DCT, especially, low gearing has a huge benefit on acceleration. May have hurt gas mileage, but what Ferrari buyer really cares about that?

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
