5.0-liter, V-10 engine, 500 hp
7-speed Sequential Manual Gearbox
The advanced 7-speed SMG transmission with DRIVELOGIC was developed to make the best use of our high-revving V-10 engine. Adapted for street use from BMW Motorsport technology, SMG allows for a true manual transmission without a clutch pedal, allowing the driver to keep the accelerator depressed through upshifts. An electrohydraulic system shifts the gears electronically, without any mechanical connection, for shift speeds as fast as 80 milliseconds - far faster than even the most experienced driver could achieve using a clutch pedal.
