Here's the real fun bit, though. See that little button that says TVD? That stands for Torque Vectoring Differential. Basically, whereas BMW, et al. use the brakes to help you maintain traction while accelerating, the RC F uses a zillion sensors that measure everything from throttle and steering input to the amount of G-force the car is experiencing, then applies more or less power to each rear wheel via electronically-controlled clutches.
The result is that you can get on the power much earlier.
This was with the standard differential, which is pretty good in its own right, but the TVD was truly amazing. It loosely equates to you having seriously legit right foot dexterity.
