The Audi R8 S tronic transmission
Impressive and efficient.
The new 7-gear dual-clutch transmission, also called S tronic, complements the impressive acceleration might of the Audi R8, with smooth gear changes, thus providing perfect dynamics.
In the R8 V10 Coupé, this dual-clutch system paves the way for achieving 100 km/h in about 3.6 seconds. In spite of this thrilling feat, S tronic manages to help reduce fuel consumption, thanks to its high efficiency and large transmission-ratio spread.
The transmission technology is usable in two automatic modes, Drive (D) and Sport (S). It completes gear-shifting in only a few hundredths of a second, with virtually no interruption in the power flow.
