Above is a Lenco transmission, one of the most specialized, wonderful, weird transmissions I've ever seen.

As we saw recently, it's a bunch of planetary gear sets mounted together and operated manually, using a different gearlever for each gear set. As far as shifting up through the gears on a drag strip and handling massive power, there's little better.


Do you know a transmission that's stranger?
