    Lexus 8 speed?

    What's up with the new Lexus 8 speed, and why would anyone want an 8 speed? Help me out here!

    The extra ratios mean less RPM drop between gears; so the car is smoother and more efficient. Also, the six and seven and eight-speed transmissions out there now sometimes have double overdrive gears; to dramatically cut engine RPM at steady-state cruising...
