7-gear M dual-clutch transmission with Drivelogic.
The M dual-clutch transmission with Drivelogic is an innovative 7-gear dual-clutch transmission that is 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 Automatic Start/Stop function. It makes it possible to change gears extremely quickly without an interruption in tractive force.
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 via the 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 transmission of power. Drivelogic can be automatically (D mode) or manually
(S mode) controlled, and in each mode three shifting options are available – from extremely sporty to comfortable to efficient.
