I had the pleasure of driving in one at Komotec. It really is amazing, certainly good for a few seconds a lap. But equally useful in traffic on the way to the track.

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!

It would be great if you could expand on this. How does it compare to other cars you've driven with DCT?  (GT3RS PDK for example?). Was the shorter gearing noticeable?   Was it smooth pulling away?

Unfortunately I only had the chance as passenger, next to Vinnie, Daniel's favourite test driver.

Basically it performs as you would expect. The shifts are really fast (Daniel spent a lot of time tuning this), both automatic and manual modes work very well. Shifts were smooth. We didn't have a chance to see the gearing on public roads.  

I later accompanied the crew to the Mendig track where the IDS video was made. Also from the outside it performs impressive.

At the time "Park" position was not installed on the gearbox, which I saw as a potential downside (knowing the poor handbrake of the Exige). But this may have been fixed by now.
