But now, with the RC F revealed and heading to dealerships before the end of the year, the need of a dual-clutch gearbox is becoming more prevalent.

Which is why Toyota Motorsport GmbH has been tasked with the job of developing what its calling a manual-shift gearbox, which is likely a dual-clutch transmission. In a recent interview, TMG business operations director Rob Leupen shared the news of the gearboxís development but also noted that development of hybrid technology for the next-generation IS F is
