The latest variant of the 8HP in the new Quadrifoglio is perfection. It is interesting to see the vloggers and journalists throw stones at Alfa Romeo because the manual trans was nixxed.

The upshifts AND downshifts of the 8HP are millisecond fast. The software and electromechanical controls of the shifts are astoundingly accurate (cannot say this of GM's 10 speed).

If a person drove the Quad without knowing the automatic transmission configuration and asked after driving:

"Do you think this transmission has a torque converter?"

The answer would always be "no". There is no sense of any viscous coupling whatsoever. It is frankly, mind blowing.
