Getting the power to the road smoothly requires a robust and precise transmission.
The LC470 uses the Tremec TKO 600RR transmission, at home on road or track.
The close gear ratios are carefully selected after extensive testing to balance traction and speed. If the ratios are too low, the tires spin out too easily, losing grip, traction, speed and cornering capability. Too high, and the car feels sluggish. Since ½ a second is lost in each gear shift, the ratios are designed to keep shifting to a minimum.
2.59 final drive ratio best suits cars fitted with engines delivering 700 bhp & above.
Tremec TKO transmission keeps the car's tires firmly stuck to the road as it accelerates unbelievably quickly, pulls high G through tight corners and reaches very high top speeds.
