BMW M5 displayed with six speed Manual Transmission
At the North American International Auto Show, BMW has announced that upcoming UK version of the 2013 BMW M5 will come powered with a six-speed manual transmission. This will also have 7 speed dual automatic clutch unit, which has been kept as a standard feature in BMW M5 2013. The new alteration will enhance the fuel economy, acceleration and flexibility ratio.
This won’t make any difference in the price figures and considered as the decent alternative of the standard seven-speed M-Double Clutch Transmission (DTC). The special active differential and drive ratio will remain same.
