I also tried this last night and whilst there was a degree of excitement as I was catapulted towards the horizon there was nothing displayed about launch control.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that the transmission was optimised in such a way that although there is no launch control on the v8 it will always balance grip and power to ensure the getaway is as fast/clean as possible.

If you want proper launch control borrow a Nissan GTR...

I assume its a gimmick anyway ; with al the electronics on board one can hardly go wrong by flooring the throttle from stationary..
Some weeks ago I almost missed a curve doing 110kmh on a country lane. No time to brake , just steer... A brief shudder of vector
control and some breaks slightly helping, no drama, just go... Brilliant !

It did slide over all fours... :mrgreen:
