Detroit, MI – January 9, 2011…On the  occasion of the North American International Auto Show, BMW confirmed  today that it will offer a 6-speed manual transmission on the North  American version of the upcoming 2013 BMW M5.

BMW 6 Speed 2013 M5

The 6-speed manual will  be available from the start of production this summer and will be  offered as a no-cost alternative to the standard 7-speed M-Double  Clutch Transmission (DCT). The manual gearbox was a popular choice for  U.S. customers of the previous generation M5 and continues to be a  unique offer in the segment.

Though the 6-speed gearbox has one less gear than the M-DCT  transmission, the ratios have been optimized for acceleration,  flexibility and fuel economy.  Final drive ratio and special M  Active differential are maintained.  The new transmission is  mated to a short throw shift linkage topped with a black leather  backlit shift knob.

The 2013 M5 will arrive at US BMW Centers in late summer 2012.   Pricing, options and specifications will be released closer to the  on-sale date.
