This is the exact GETRAG 6 gearbox that is in the 3 pedal car.
This transmition is manual with a Hydraulically controled clutch.
It has a clutch, it has no clutch pedal.

Think of SMG as the same manual transmission as the 6-speed manual M3, except a robot will do the clutch and actuate the gear for you when you tap a paddle. A lot faster than you could ever do.

See my answer on your other thread with the same question.
