Invented by a Frenchman just before WW2 and introduced to road cars in 2003 in the Golf R32, this type of transmission is a semi-automatic gearbox - two clutches take care of two sets of gears. One clutch takes care of odd gears (1, 3, 5, 7) and the other clutch deals with the even gears (R, 2, 4, 6).

How it works:
One clutch has 1st gear engaged, with the car moving forwards. Meanwhile, the other clutch has 2nd gear ready to be engaged. Come change-up time, clutch no.1 disengages 1st and clutch no.2 engages 2nd gear and the car keeps going, whilst clutch no.1 prepares 3rd gear for engagement. All of this happens within milliseconds, so power delivery to the road is uninterrupted.

Usually - though not always - dual-clutch gearboxes are more fuel-efficient than an equivalent manual gearbox.

For more info, see Wikipedia.

Based on the Ford Mondeo, this was Jaguar's smallest saloon, created to compete with the 3-Series. It was FWD because neither Jag nor Ford had a suitable RWD platform to build it on.
Available as a saloon or an estate, with FWD or AWD, buyers could be had with a 2.1-, 2.5- or 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol or a 2.0- or 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel, with either five- or six-speed manual or automatic gearboxes, the 5-speed variant of the latter having a "J-Gate"-type gear selection movement.

The model was discontinued in 2009, enjoying an eight year production run.
