I am very excited about the new World 7Gtronic Transmission! It has 2 more
gears than most conventional transmissions, and this has countless
Lower RPMs to reduce fuel consumption, and drastically increase the life
of the engine
reduces engine wear
optimal performance, buy keeping the RPM in peak Torque
Rapid Downshift, including multiple gears
better engine management: ride and feel!
I wish my car had one...but I'm stuck with the old 5'er (oh poor me eh? -
these tran's ARE STILL AMAZING!)
I think these will be way better than the CVT's as there are numerous long
term problems they will produce...but far more to the point, they kill the
drive. And isn't that what a Mercedes is all about? The Mercedes Benz
Ride: Like no other!
They are currently only available on the larger engine, soley due to power
outputs, but as with everything, expect to see them all over - including
manuel versions...but as usual...:(...I'll have to cross the pond if I
want to see it first!
