New '6012' Road Car Gearbox
Tuesday 10th January 2006
Xtrac launched its ultra high specification 6 speed transverse transaxle transmission at the Autosport International Show held at the NEC in January.
The new gearbox represents an important commercial development for the company; building on our expertise in specialist race car transmissions the road-going '6012' variant extends Xtrac's business into low volume driveline projects for the mainstream automotive industry. Designed to meet the needs of vehicle manufacturers producing high performance vehicles, the transmission can handle an impressive 1,100 Nm of torque.
The key benefit to makers of exclusive supercars requiring such transmissions is access to an affordable 'off-the-shelf' system, thereby avoiding the need for expensive upfront engineering development of a bespoke design.
