Ricardo and Bugatti extend DCT partnership

Bugatti has placed a further contact for the production of the advanced and award-winning DCT system of its iconic Veyron supercar. The new order represents a further two years of production for the DCT unit – which was designed in collaboration with Ricardo – and will be manufactured at the Ricardo facility at Leamington, UK.

The seven-speed DCT of the Veyron is the result of a highly successful and long-standing design, development and manufacturing collaboration between Ricardo and Bugatti, a joint endeavor that encompasses both the transmission hardware and its electronic control unit and software. This state-of-the-art transmission is an important contributor to the high quality driving experience offered by all versions of the Bugatti Veyron. In addition to providing support on the design and development of the DCT, Ricardo has been responsible for the manufacture and supply of these class-leading transmissions for all versions of the Veyron since the launch of this exceptional supercar product.

“Ricardo is really pleased to see a further extension of the partnership with Bugatti on the dual clutch transmission of the Veyron, a supercar that represents the ultimate in high quality automotive design, engineering and manufacture,” said Ricardo director of high performance transmission products, Mark Barge. “We look forward to two further very successful years in the story of this truly great automobile with its advanced Ricardo transmission.”
