So particularly fast gear changes will be allowed because only must be circulated. The driver can also intervene in the gear selection via switching rockers. The now introduced dcs system works with two wet couplings. This construction allows the collaboration of the transmission with the 380 newton meter diesel dry clutches were easily heated at high torques and had to be roughly rough in such torques.

Somewhat knights mouths the performance information: during the manual switch 9.9 seconds for the acceleration to 100 km / h, the dsc execution requires 11.1 seconds, even the final speed is lower with 198 km / h by 2 km / h. Consumption in the nefz amounts to dcs 7.3 instead of 7.0 liters. What these for a double-clutch gear are rather unfavorable values, we could not clear so far.
