The smell on these is very penetrating, for some reason. It's also easy to generate. If it still engages normally and there's no shuddering, just let it air out and never let the offending person drive it again.

It was high revs with gradual engagement that generated the smell. These cars can produce small amounts of the odor by, say, trying a burnout while forgetting to turn off traction control. That applies brakes against the clutch, but doesn't last long. That's an example of "easy to generate." Give it some time to clear out....probably just fine.
