So, we've shown you the early spy film that has a BMW M5 during its test phase.
Though there was no interior film, it was clear how the vehicle was launching that it wasn't a dual-clutch or autobox. Speculation told us that a manual was on the way; however, you can never be too sure until there is an official reveal or announcement.
You have to remember, folks. This is a business.
Long story short, BMW was more than happy to show off a manual 2013 BMW M5 at a recent event so now you know for real, it's on its way.
BMW has revealed the first manual-equipped M5 at a private event in Santa Barbara, California. The six-speed model gets one less ratio than the standard-fit seven-speed M DCT twin-clutch gearbox, and is available as a no-cost option to US and Canadian customers only.
Production begins this summer and the first first two months of the run are already sold out...
