MINI's New Eight Speed Automatic Transmission

MotoringFile covers MINI's reveal of its new Aisin 8 speed AWF8F35 automatic transmission. According to the article:
. . . the 8 speed has a decoupling mechanism that allows for a reduction in parasitic drag which allows for coasting on overrun – something that BMW has been incorporating in across its range. It’s also built from the ground-up to be compatible with MINI’s start/stop functionality.
