Performance Car Transmissions

Innovation is rapidly changing how car designers are building performance vehicles. They imagine the performance they want – and then deliver it, through innovative use of technology and the right partnerships. Our knowledge of designing and building race-robust, light-weight race car gearboxes puts us in an ideal position to do the same for sports cars that are equally at home on the road or track. Our in-house volume manufacturing facility enables us to work with you from prototype to trials and on to volume production; further decreasing prototype development timescales and costs.

We elevate the ability to deliver performance of the highest standard by working with each customer to realise the dynamic driving experience they wish to deliver with their car.

Hewland has off-the-shelf products and gearbox designs that can be quickly adapted to any chassis architecture or engine type such as front, mid or rear driving two or four wheels. If a bespoke design is needed, our engineers can consult and then design a gearbox to meet any requirement.

We believe no one responds to the needs of the performance car designer like Hewland.

The RP1 design team have over 120 man-years of experience designing high performance automobiles and racecars as well as advanced composites and aerodynamics. But when it came to selecting a race-inspired gearbox and differential, the team came to Hewland.

Shifting without compromise
Race-bred transmissions for cars that make few compromises on the road or track.
