With a light, compact design, the M six-speed manual transmission decreases the total weight of the car, resulting in a wide variety of benefits for dynamics, agility, acceleration and fuel consumption. The lightened gear box also balances the axle load distribution to nearly 50:50, giving the car more neutral and stabilised driving characteristics in every situation.
Inside the transmission, innovative carbon fibre friction lining makes changing gears effortless. This technology, adopted from motor sports, also contributes to greater efficiency and lower fuel consumption.
M six-speed manual transmission is fully integrated into the other cutting-edge control systems: Together with motor electronics, its sensors provide signals to the engine speed control system when shifting gears.
