Offering both a manual gearshift and an automatic mode, 7-speed PDK promises to deliver sports performance with efficiency and comfort as well as rapid gear changes with no discernible interruption in the flow of power.
PDK is essentially two gearboxes in one. The double clutch provides an alternating, friction-locked connection between these two half gearboxes and the engine. Gears 1 to 6 have a sports ratio and top speed is reached in 6th gear. The 7th gear has a long ratio, which helps to keep the engine revs low, even at high speeds. Depending on the gearshift programme (SPORT button activated or deactivated), the gear change is optimised for comfort or sporty driving.
We've made the PDK even sportier for the Panamera GTS and the Panamera Turbo models. The PDK in SPORT PLUS mode is designed for maximum performance: The gear changes are extremely fast, the maximum propulsion force potential is used to achieve optimum acceleration.
