Renault R27 - quick-shift gearbox 30 January 2007

Renault's new car, the R27, boasts a completely revised gearbox, featuring the 'quick shift' system already adopted by some teams, designed to cut shift times to practically zero. The gearbox is coupled with the RS27 engine, a refined version of last year's V8, featuring new pistons, cams, valves, conrods, and redesigned combustion chambers.
