Formula One gear shifts.

The seven-speed SMG Drivelogic in the
BMW M6 Coupé.

The driver can choose between using paddles on the steering wheel or the shift lever on the central console to operate the seven-speed SMG Drivelogic which allows for extremely fast gear changes without having to reduce speed, decrease engine power or use a clutch. Maximum acceleration is made possible by Launch Control, which uses the optimum range of revs to shift through the gears automatically.
