This robotized ISR gearbox combines extremely fast shift times (almost 50% less than dual-clutch transmission) with the benefits of a manual transmission in terms of weight and compact dimensions
The 350 GT was the first Lamborghini back in 1964. The 3.5-litre V12 engine produced 320bhp and gave the car a top speed of 250 km/h.

The prototype for all Lamborghini super sports cars was the 350 GTV study presented at the Turin Motor Show in 1963.
The 1968 Espada featured a 4.0 litre, 325 bhp V12
The 350 bhp Jarama was introduced in 1970, and later evolved into the 365 bhp Jarama S.

The Lamborghini ISR transmission shifts around 40 percent faster than the e.gear transmission in the Gallardo, already one of the worldâ€™s fastest automated manual gearboxes.

Lamborghini's high-revving V12 engines have been at the heart of the brand since 1964, powering dreamcars such the Miura, Espada, Countach, Diablo and Murciélago. Its next 6.5 litre V12 powerplant is brutally powerful (700 bhp) but raw numbers alone do not do it justice. The 48 valves are electronically actuated while the sophisticated engine, thermal and oil circulation management systems ensure engine health under extreme conditions. You can bet the farm this masterpiece will win Engine of the Year and the new seven-speed “emotional” ISR (Independent Shifting Rod), robotized, servo-actuated transmission is equally as impressive, further illustrating an all-encompassing innovation process.
