17: Paddle shifters
The earliest incarnations of the paddle shifter were novelties at best but had a lot to offer. Interestingly enough, the paddle shifters have become a part of the automotive industry that most drivers flock to. The paddle shifters are a neat feature to have in an early-model sports car because it is a different type of driving solution. As technology has advanced, today, paddle shifters are almost like driving in a video game.
Precision shifting and technology have made driving while using a paddle shifter an addictive thing to do. Most modern sports cars come with paddle shifting capabilities built right into the vehicle alongside the standard transmission.
