The two faces of the TCT transmission
A smooth, light transmission
The TCT transmission is lightning-swift in switching between gears without any jerking or shaking. In other words, smooth. The control lever is similar to the control system for a traditional automatic transmission. By moving the selector, the user may switch between automatic and manual modes. In manual mode, it can be controlled using the selectors on the steering wheel, without the driver having to take his or her hands off the wheel. When in automatic mode, the electronic system is surprisingly adept at always selecting the right gear while adjusting the functioning of the transmission to suit the driver’s style.
Underlying the TCT technology is an original conception of the dual-clutch transmission, the system of electrico-hydraulic actuators and an electronic control center connected not just to the engine, but also to brake, traction and stability control systems. This quick-thinking “brain” updates the parameters approximately 500 times a second!
Dodge and SRT co-star in Fast & Furious 6
Another two of the Group’s stars feature in the most thrilling scenes of the latest entry to the Fast & Furious series. In addition to the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, the film includes three Chrysler vehicles: the 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8 driven by the film’s protagonist, Dom Torretto, the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 used as an armored car to transport stolen goods and a 1969 Dodge Daytona seen racing through the streets of London. For the Dodge brand, partnering with film studio Universal Pictures is not a new development, but rather dates back to the beginning of the successful Fast & Furious series.
