The M dual-clutch transmission with Drivelogic is an innovative 7-speed dual-clutch transmission specially designed for the BMW M high-rev engine.
The system boasts a traction-optimised automatic gear selection, Launch Control, Low Speed Assistance, as well as the Automatic Start/Stop function. It makes it possible to change gears extremely quickly without any loss in power. Two sub-transmissions, each with its own clutch, continuously relay the power of the engine to the rear wheels.
The system can be controlled automatically, or manually using the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel or gear lever. Just as with Launch Control, which allows maximum acceleration from a standing start, an extremely dynamic driving experience is the result. Shifting gears at high speed is possible without using the clutch, and without any interruption in the power delivery. Drivelogic can be automatically (D mode) or manually (S mode) controlled. You can also choose between extremely sporty, comfortable or efficient driving with three shifting options available.
