Xtrac, one of the best names in auto engineering business and a transmission technology specialist, announced launch of two new transmission models at the at the 2013 Autosport International motorsport show in Birmingham. They’ve come up with a new rally gearbox and a hybrid automated manual transmission for road cars.

The new 1113 rally gearbox is developed for the new generation of compact rally cars, and is being homologated by the FIA this month for the new R5 race category introduced in Europe for the 2013 race season. It comes with a complementary rear differential, which is paired with the new gearbox.

Xtrac is also bringing along the latest 1046 front wheel drive and 1080 rear wheel drive gearboxes, for British Touring Car Championship (BTTC) and World Touring Car Championship (WTTC) cars.

The highlight of the lineup, however, is the Xtrac 1010 hybridised transmission concept for road cars. Technical details are yet to be released, but Xtrac says it will allow future luxury supercars to meet the 95g/km CO2 emission requirement

The 1010 transmission will make its UK debut at the MIA International Low Carbon Racing Conference on Wednesday 9 January, and the Autosport International exhibition this Thursday.
