2012 BMW M5 F10 will get manual transmission image

After many rumors about the possibility to be unveiled without any manual transmission, the guys from 5post had spotted this 2012 M5 with 6-speed manual gearbox.

So yes – the 2012 BMW M5 will be available with both type of gearboxes – a six-speed manual and the 7-speed DCT transmission.

The H-pattern is covered leading some to speculate that there may be more than 6-gears, but most likely they’re simply covering the M-badge.

However, no words until now about a manual hand-brake. Again, BMW has not unveiled anything about this option, and; all spyphotos show the new M5 with electro-mechanical hand-brake.

The F10 M5 is powered by new high-revving V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo Technology that delivers both performance and efficiency significantly increased in comparison to the previous engine.

Numerous drivetrain innovations and other enhancements have lead to a reduction in fuel consumption and emission levels by more than 25 percent.

Match the brawny powertrain with the front-rear weight distribution, suspension tuning, and creature comforts BMW’s M Division is known for, and you have a true world-class super sedan.
