New 7-speed gearbox for 2004

According to German magazine auto motor & sport, some selected V8 models will have a newly developed 7-speed automatic gearbox for 2004.
With its close ratios, it is designed to be able to skip gears when changing.
The case is out of magnesium, and the total weight is only 1.5kg higher than the current 5 speed auto.
First version is for up to 700Nm but a gearbox capable of handling up to 1200 Nm will follow.
