Dual-clutch transmission (DCT)

What is a dual-clutch automatic gearbox and how does it work?

A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is a type of gearbox that uses two separate clutches and sets of gears, with one set for odd gears and another for the even ones. The benefit is that gear shifts can be made without interrupting the power being sent to the wheels. This makes for smoother and quicker gear changes than in regular automatic gearboxes.
