Post Rejoice: US 2012 M5 will have an optional Manual Transmission!

Click the image to open in full size.

BMW M5 F10: 305 km/h max speed for Germany and manual transmission for U.S. only

BMW BLOG reports:
Quote:
Our sister-magazine BimmerToday, quoting German publication Focus, reports on the possibility of the new 2012 BMW M5 to have an increased top speed. The now usual 250 km/h top speed available in several other M products is said to be raised to 305 km/h (189mph), but only for the German market.

The game seems to be repeating again with the new F10 M5. For an additional cost into four figures, the top speed can be raised to 305 km/h and will be combined with a driver training program. In order to handle the increased top speed, the M5 will have to be equipped with tires having the speed index ZR (>240 kph). The usually tires used are marked Y and can handle up to 300 km/h.

Same German publication reports on the transmission choices for the new M5 which comes in two flavors: a 7-speed DCT gearbox and manual. Only for the US the manual gearbox will be available, same as with the E60. As with the E60 M5, the manual transmission will be available only for the U.S. market. The dual-clutch gearbox will be available with shift paddles on the steering wheel.

All is right. Too bad a proper gear box is something to get excited about these days

Sweet! BMW not letting the enthusiasts down. Although, I would wager manual sales will be less than 15-20% of total production.

Lucky Americans! Only way we'll be able to get our hands on one of those, IF it's actually true, is to import one

Isn't the big news the fact that it will at least have a DCT vs traditional torque converter auto as was previously thought? That alone will save the M5

Yes! Not like I would buy one anyway, but it still makes me feel good.

Hopefully Canada is grouped in with the USA on this one, so we get the manual as well.
