Car and Driver Confirms 6 speed Manual for M6

BMW F12 F23 M6 6 speed for US market

As we previously reported while interviewing Thomas Schemera (VP of Sales and Marketing for the BMW M Brand at BMW AG) and Matt Russell (M Brand Manager for the BMW of North America) the BMW M6 was most likely to get a 6 speed manual transmission for those of us that like to row our cars around town or the track. Now Car and Driver is confirming that the F12/F13 2013 or 2014 BMW M6 will indeed get the 6 speed.

According to Car and Driver, the new M6 will get a manual transmission in 2013 or 2014. Apparently, American customers are the ones who want a manual transmission, as the European buyers accepted the latest generation of automated transmissions
It is likely that the 6 speed will be the same as offered on the BMW M5. This is great news for enthusiasts and shows that BMW take the US enthusiasts very seriously.

Would you order your M6 with the superior performing Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) or do you prefer to manually shift your gears, even if it is slower?
