Well... if you could have the electric motor kick in while shifting, you could potentially get constant acceleration. That'd be neat. Of course, it's not like a modern DCT really needs that, anyway. I drove a 911 Turbo S recently that was a) neck-snappingly fast and b) the shifts were instantaneous. I'm still trying to figure out how the motor can gain or drop 1000 RPM in about 10ms without ripping itself or the transmission to pieces.
Or do what GM did with the C8 and have it intentionally slip the clutches during shifts. I'm looking forward to trying that one out.
Super-caps aren't that heavy, especially relative to a big-ass 2000lb (Tesla) battery pack. I'd be surprised if Lamborghini didn't have a very good performance-oriented justification for the design. I doubt it had anything to do with fuel economy or marketing. Like Ferrari, they don't advertise as they sell everything they can produce, without really trying.
