Ive seen this on Top Gear. Its pretty cool but is a little compliacted. Its the jog dial in the middle that takes the place of the knob. And I believe it has a floppy-paddle gear shifter.

I took, but it did not come properly. So deleted it.
OT: I sometime get pickers taken like with shaken camera. Only sometimes.

The Jag is probably a paddle shift (can't tell from the pic) - has small paddles behind the steering wheel. They usually have separate paddles for both upshift and downshift on both sides of the steering wheel (four paddles in all).

Well the roundel you see in the centre console right below the Starter button rises up in the air when you switch the car on. That is what controls the gears & of course you also have the flappy pedals behind the steering wheel.
