Seven gears that shift at lightning speed without interrupting traction – Audi presents a new phase in the evolution of transmission systems. The seven-speed S tronic combines its dynamic working method with high efficiency. The new twin-clutch transmission is designed to work with longitudinally installed engines and the quattro all-wheel drive system, and its 550 Nm torque capacity makes it suitable for a wide range of sporty models. Audi will introduce the new S tronic into multiple model lines in series production during the course of this year.

That's about 404ft/lbs of torque. That covers a pretty good range of engines. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Even the non-turbo V10 can be applied, so a R8 V10 could probably be on par with the Porsche Turbo, Corvette Z06 and GT-R in terms of accelleration.

Hopefully it will have a true overdrive gear. There is no need for a 450 horsepoew S8 to run 3,000 or so RPM for 75 mph cruise. You can get some great fuel economy savings on the EPA test with a low overdrive gear.
