Perhaps the largest decision in building a mid-engine car is finding the right transaxle. This is particularly true if you are going to use an American V8 because most transaxles are geared for higher-revving European engines. We can provide you with a complete solution built around the Graziano transaxle.
Oerlikon Graziano is a supplier to multiple OEMs, and manufactures very high quality units for high performance cars. These robust transaxles don't need to be inverted like Porsche units, are equipped with a limited slip, and because they use factory clutches, starters, etc, a supply of parts is guaranteed for many years.
The V8 units have shorter gears than the V10 transaxles (see table below) but they are otherwise identical.
We also offer multiple engine / Graziano transaxle adapter plates and a Graziano Accessories package which, when combined, provides you with a complete solution.
These new transaxles from Graziano are only available to customers who have purchased a car from RCR and Superlite, and certain others who install them in other component cars. No sales for installation into existing Audi R8 or Lamborghini cars.
