The 8HP is a very modern 8 speed transmission automatic transmission built and designed by ZF Friedrichshafen AG. It has a very steep first gear ratio of 4.696:1 and a very generous overdrive gear of 0.667:1. This help immensely with off the line performance and gas mileage. This transmission can handle very high horsepower motors with a torque capacity of 516 lb.ft. It weights a mere 200 lbs, which is fairly light in weight for a transmission of this strength. The transmission is unique because it is not designed by a single automotive brand. Instead, it is designed by an aftermarket company and used in many different makes and models. It can be found in the Audi A6 and the Q5, the Bentley Continental Flying Spur, the BMW 7 series and the X5, The Dodge Challenger, The Jaguar XF, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Maserati Ghibli, The Ram 1500, the Rolls Royse Wraith and the Volkswagen Amarok. It was also found in the Ranger Roger Sport.
