c635 gearbox

Quote:
TURIN – Fiat Group Automobiles will offer its first dual-clutch gearbox in September 2009, the company announced today.

The new gearbox is one of the three variants of the C635, a new family of 6-speed gearboxes able to absorb up to 35kgm of torque.

The C635 will debut as a manual in June 2009, followed in September by the dual clutch and by an automated manual transmission (AMT) in 2010.

Fiat Powertrain Technologies will invest 500 million euros on the C615 development and tooling.

The new gearbox will be built in Fiat Powertrain Technology's plant of Verrone, near Biella, 75km northeast of Turin.

The C635 family will reach full capacity of 800,000 units a year by 2010, adding about 600 jobs to Verrone's current staff of 500 people.

Small cars such the Fiat Grande Punto and lower-medium models such as the Fiat Bravo, as well as similar sized models from Alfa Romeo and Lancia, will use the C635.

Volkswagen group had been pioneering dual clutch transmissions in Europe.

The German carmaker introduced its first dual clutch in 2003 on the VW Golf R32, calling the technology Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG).

Audi calls the technology S tronic.

VW Group had built 1 million DSGs by the end of 2007, of which 400,000 were built last year.

Fiat will use two dry clutches – from which the name Dual Dry Clutch (DDC) originates. These are lighter and require less cooling than traditional wet-clutch systems.

VW is currently introducing its second generation dual clutch, a new 7-speed, which is switching to dry clutches too.

The dry-clutch DSG debuts this month on two VW Golf versions, the 122hp TSi gasoline and the 105hp TDi diesel.

In February, Volvo will begin sales of its first dual clutch it calls Powershift, on its C30, V40 and V50 models.

BMW will introduce in March its first dual clutch transmission, it calls M-DCT, on the M3 sportscar range.

Fiat 500 and Ferrari: two universal motoring icons which represent “Made in Italy”, one cute and the other exclusive. This is why the Maranello House has chosen the Fiat model as its “courtesy car” for its customers, who appreciate Italian style and like unique products. In actual fact, two hundred Fiat 500 have been manufactured exclusively for the Ferrari sales network and will be driving on all of Europe’s roads.

Based on the Sport version and distinguished by the traditional red colour, the two hundred Fiat 500 specials are fitted with the lively 1.4 6v 100 bhp engine and offer specific tuning and exhaust in perfect harmony with the sporty spirit of the “prancing horse”: these two features are designed and made by Magneti Marelli, a leading components company in the Fiat Group which has supplied high-tech parts to Fiat and Ferrari for years. The same sporty theme can also be found in some aesthetic details such as the red calipers, sporty pedal set, special black steering wheel with red stitching and 16” alloy wheels with 195/45 tyres.

Compared to the already richly equipped Sport version, the Fiat 500 customised for Ferrari also has automatic climate control, electric sunroof, prestigious Frau leather interior, hi-fi, fog lights, numbered plate on the dashboard and “Limited Edition” wording on the kick plate. The Ferrari network will thus be able to offer its customers a special car where the choice of every detail is the result of meticulous care and craftsmanship.

With this original initiative, the Fiat 500 model is confirmed both as a real “platform” on which Fiat is creating exclusive limited editions and as a successful car capable of winning over the general public, as demonstrated by the 222 thousand orders so far received.
