I think there may have been a little abuse there. The guy was talking about the paddle shifter etc. and it didn't sound like he knew what he was doing. I wonder if maybe they had it wide open and instead of up shifting maybe it downshifted at WOT. I guess either way the engine shouldn't have blown and it's good it will be covered by warranty. Nothing good can happen when you let someone else borrow your favorite car for an abuse test.

With a dual-clutch transmission I think it's programming would prevent a downshift if it would over-rev the engine.
