Imagine the revolution Isuzu caused when they revealed the Navi5 back in 1985! A driving robot as this commercial calls it.

The gear is selected by an ECU and shifts automatically to the ideal gear depending on the speed and revs of the engine. It also enables the (more) experienced driver to manually shift gears.
No wonder it was one of the 240 landmarks of the Japanese Automotive Technology of the 20th century!
