100% derived from Formula 1 technology of the 90’s, the electro-hydraulic system allowed gear shifts to be actuated by paddles on the steering column. This revolutionary concept caused shockwaves in the industry when announced, allowing for the driver’s hands to stay on the steering wheel at all times - just like F1 piloti. It ushered in a new era of gearbox technology for Ferrari’s road cars, culminating in today’s lightning-fast 7 speed dual clutch configurations. To date, it is one of the most visible technological transfers from Formula 1 to road-going vehicles.
