Default The new trans in C7

Met a guy in Germany, his friend works with ZF. He is 100% that ZF is going into C7, it will be a 7 speed, and i looked up their products. They do have a 7 speed, its used in Panamera and 911 Turbo, so it can handle torque

Anyone know the weight on T6060 and rear end ?

This unit is supposedly 110 kg, aprox 240 pounds

Could it be? we finally get a tranny where i can flick the padle midturn and nothing but pure accelaration happens

I hope your friend is correct. That would be awesome. Based on the video, the ZF DCT is good for just over 500 ft-lbs of torque (after doing the conversion from N-m to ft-lbs).

My guess is it will be the 7MT not the 7DT. Still very nice.

The more I start to read about the C7, the more I want it come out of the darkness and be listed for sale. That and be able to come up with the $. Being I want to pay with cash VS 36-60 month loan. ( I am big on paying right then and there vs a "I will pay it off later" type thinking.)

ZF builds the non DCT 8 speed that is in the F Type and the Chrysler 300. This may be the trans that that is heading to the C7

That's what I'm thinking as well...the info might be somewhat legit/accurate but it might refer to the wrong transmission type.
A 7 speed manual was 'almost' confirmed quite some time ago, it's the automatic that was still up in the air.

Like it or not.

If it does not show up in the first year of production, hopefully it will show up in the second or third year.

Common Rune. You know you're not supposed to shift mid-corner.
