The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 promises a change of 10 speeds faster than the PDK Porsche (video)

what Are the changes of double clutch the only interesting alternative in sports of high-flying? It seems that not. In recent years we have tried many changes of torque converter that not only convinced us, but that we have come to like as much or more than the best changes of double clutch on the market. The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 debuts an automatic change of 10 relationships, and torque converter that, according to Chevrolet, it’s faster than the PDK from Porsche, based on double clutch. Let us remember that the ZL1 is a beast of 640 horsepower, the Chevrolet Camaro sixth generation is more athletic, with V8 engine of 6.2 liters supercharged by a compressor. See “background” for the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 2016.

what Are the 10 relationships too? According to Chevrolet not. Your goal could be divided in two situations, driving more everyday, and the search of its maximum performance. For the first, more relationships ensure an appropriate regime to contain the consumption, and to advocate for efficiency, with a tenth very long and designed to cruise the highway. But you will be with me in that in an eight-cylinder in vee 6.2-liter, 640 HP of power is unacceptable to assume a consumption really high.

For the second situation, the search for the maximum performance, have ten gears, instead of eight, for example, ensures to shorten the first relationships to achieve accelerations faster, and allow the driver to be in any type of curve can be found in the appropriate gear, and in a regime of revolutions optimum for the output of the rotation be more rapid. A transition between gears very fast, almost instantaneous, will do the rest.

According to Chevrolet, this change premiered by the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 offers fast transitions that a change of double clutch, as the PDK of Porsche, which is definitely one of the best we’ve tested.

* Between the first and second is 36% faster
* Between second and third is 27% faster
* Between third and fourth is 26% faster

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is also available with a manual change of six relations function of tip high-heeled machine, which automates a blow of gas in the reductions.
