Alfa Romeo will introduce a new twin-clutch TCT auto gearbox on the Mito late this year and the Giulietta in spring 2011.

The six-speed design, developed in-house by Fiat, employs dry clutches and has a torque capacity of 188lb ft, just enough to cope with the Giulietta Cloverleaf's 177lb ft 1.7 turbo on overboost.

Initially it will only be fitted to the 135bhp 1.4 Mito and the 170bhp 1.4 petrol and 2.0 diesel Giuliettas.

DCT are patented by Borg-Warner/Volkswagen

Surely its only the DSG monica thats patented and maybe some of the engineering? Otherwise it would be like patenting the 6 speed manual?

i have reason to believe 90% of autocar staff are at goodwood, and they have the cleaners back at the office to manage the magazine.
