The advanced design of the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission ensures precise gear changes and optimum performance, putting the power of the Quattroporte engines under your complete control. Thanks to autoadaptive software, the transmission modifies its shift patterns according to driving style, for an even more rewarding, one-to-one driving experience. And when it comes to long, high-speed journeys, the last two gears, seventh and eighth, are specially calibrated to reduce fuel consumption and further increase comfort. The transmission sends power to the rear wheels of all Quattroporte versions via a standard mechanical Limited- Slip Differential (LSD). This ensures superb traction even in challenging situations. For maximum driver engagement, there are five operating modes, selected using the buttons near the gear lever: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport, and ICE (Increased Control & Efficiency) mode. Upshifts are all automatic unless a manual mode is selected.
