Mines a manual GT-500 so I'm learning from friends and instructors, the only two buddies I let drive mine, well one worked @ Lamborigini and owns an M/// and is used to all manual cars (drove Porsches\lotus\lambos and astons all the time) , so he makes me look like a ***** when it comes to driving this car, the other has driven manual his entire life. Other than that...really no one...not many these days can drive manual it is dying out as auto is so much faster.... My 2nd friend is obv more docile and even to him though he grew up driving manual the GT-500 to him is crazy, but with my 1st friend, to him, he pretty much learned on the GT-500, when he drives it vs how I drive it, the car literally transforms into a monster. so fast and such smooth shifts up and down complete rev matching, makes me feel like a fool, without the ability to fully harness the car.

My friend and I just drove 12 hours round trip to get him a used 2007 GT convertible for him. I drove it the six hours on the way home. A week later he was having a question if the coyote was much faster then his 2007. I threw him the keys and said take it for the day.
The next day he returned and said wow. Not only is it faster but the whole car is upgraded. Outside of that nobody will touch my car ever again.

Everyone including my: 73 year old mother, teenage half brothers, wife, colleagues, sister,cousins....lol.
If it was a 100,000$ car I wouldn't, but a 30,000 car no worries.....( I have an extra set of wheels in pristine condition,so no worries about curbed wheels). My reasoning is the car sits unused 95% of the time so why not let others enjoy driving it.

Just to be clear, it is the 14 GT and not the occasional shop guy that she plays with, right?
