Alfa Romeo introduces all-new twin-clutch gearbox

Alfa Romeo will launch a new twin-clutch TCT auto gearbox in the MiTo this year and the Giulietta in Spring 2011.

The 6 speed design, developed internally by Fiat, employs dry clutches and has a torque capacity of 254Nm (188lb/ft), just enough to cope with the Giulietta Cloverleaf's 239Nm (177lb/ft) 1.7 litre turbo on Overboost.

To begin with, it will only be fitted to the 135bhp 1.4 litre Mito and the 170bhp 1.4 litre petrol and 2.0 diesel Giuliettas.
