AUDI R8 6 SPEED SEQUENTIAL
Pfitzner Performance Gearboxes has developed a range of gear sets for vehicles generically known as Supercars. The philosophy behind this programme is to provide owners with an opportunity to ensure that performance is not compromised or restricted by the car’s transmission.
One of the most iconic brands in the Supercar arena is Lamborghini, with the company’s most popular and recognisable model, the Gallardo featuring a four-wheel-drive transaxle and front final-drive transmission system. This same configuration also appears in the Audi R8, the two cars sharing many of the same major components.
Research has found that the factory-fitted 6-speed H-pattern and electronic-shift gearboxes are not strong enough to cope with significantly increased horsepower and torque. In response, PPG has created a high performance, 6-speed sequential system that combines strength and durability with effortless and positive activation. Its unique helical dog-tooth profile also ensures greater efficiency and develops less noise than other gearboxes fitted with straight-cut gears.
