Dual Clutch Transmission

Cut-away view of NSX 9-speed dual clutch transmission.
With our automatic DCTs, one clutch is engaged with the current gear while sensors predict whether the next gear change will be an upshift or downshift. The second clutch prepares the next gear ratio for instant engagement with a negligible loss of torque. Our 8-Speed DCT includes a torque converter to smooth low-speed operation, while our and 9-Speed Sport Hybrid DCT achieves this with electric motors.
