I recently heard from a few people that the Audi R8 will have a new 7 speed gearbox and was wondering if that is true and if it is the new S Tronic gearbox that people are talking about? Any Ideas guys?


Thanks

The R8 has an R-Tronic box. Its 6 speed and exactly the same as the manual box (which is lambourghini) with the hydraulic actuator sitting on the top of it.

It uses slightly thinner selector forks than the manual box.

Both cars run the Lambourghini clutch (scary!)

The R8 has a bespoke bell housing and thrust bearing

Hope that helps

If it is the latest spec lambo clutch there isn't an issue. Apart from DJAngry nobody has mentioned clutch issues (He sold the car for the same price he bought if for)
