the M logo. In its M-specific configuration, the new transmission harmonises perfectly with the engine and suspension technology of the BMW M3 based from the start on the particular features and requirements of motorsport. And at the same time the M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic makes a helpful contribution to driving comfort and supports the driver in ensuring maximum efficiency at the wheel.
The M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic offers all the features required to enjoy extra driving dynamics and motoring comfort as well as a new standard of all-round economy in a car of this calibre. Compared with a conventional automatic transmission, for example, there is no loss of energy otherwise caused by the torque converter.
A further advantage of this high-performance transmission management is that it is able to provide the ideal transmission ratio at all times for maximum efficiency, taking the particular style of motoring preferred by the driver into account. In this way the M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic also helps to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
Proudly presenting the new technology, BMW M GmbH is once again highlighting the Company’s competence in modern technology and its leading role in the development of high-performance cars able to provide their racing qualities also in everyday motoring and offer up-to-date comfort and efficiency at the same time.
